Forum Youngblood Grandpops Snowboard - Blem 2013

The Forum Youngblood Grandpops Snowboard is all about providing you with the pop that you need to go higher. This true twin provides you with exaggerated ollie power thanks to Forum's Grandpops profile, while the Swingers Club treatment lets it play fast and loose, allowing you to spin faster. That should go nicely with the increased air the Youngblood Grandpops will provide you. Note: *This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*
Rocker Type
Grand Pops - Vastly exaggerated pop zones dramatically increase the surface area just inside the contact points at the nose and tail. These aggressive pop zones create an even larger platform to ollie from. When combined with the stability of a lower camber height between the feet, they deliver bigger, more powerful ollies.
Flex
Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - A medium flex that is perfect for popping and pressing
Shape
Swingers Club - The tip and tail of the wood core are shaved precisely to save weight without sacrificing durability. This makes the board spin faster and float with less effort when the snow beckons.
Booter Boosters - Carbon strands strategically placed from under your foot to the nose and tail provides a direct response with better energy return and more boost for takeoffs and flat ollies.
Sidecut
True Twin - Symmetrical tip and tail width measurements and flex patterns
Core
Gnar - This core is made entirely of high-grade Aspen. The lightweight, vertical wood laminates reduce overall board weight while still providing a responsive ride. Also, grainbelt technology adds critical strength under the bindings.
Laminates
Biax - With a configuration to make any board smooth, forgiving, and fun to ride, Biax is constructed with strands that crisscross at a 90-degree angle.
Base
Formula - The sintered base will get you up to speed and off the lip faster, so casing the knuckle is no longer a problem. Go fast and go big with this special formula.
Binding Compatibility
2 x 4 Inserts pattern

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Flat/Camber/Flat
    Flat/Camber/Flat
    This profile is very similar to full camber, except that it has a mellower flat area from the bindings out. This will make it more forgiving and easier to do some tricks in the park.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
