Forum Youngblood Grandpops Snowboard 2013

The Forum Youngblood Granpops Snowboard is perfect for shredding the park all day, every day. Forum rates this board as one of its best park boards out in this year's line, and there are so many good reasons as to why they think that. With a flex rating of 4 and Booter Boosters technology you can make any raised entry rail yours by popping off the ground no problem. Make the park look like a child's playground with a board that you can be proud of.
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
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.
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.
Sidecut
True Twin - Symmetrical tip and tail width measurements and flex patterns
Core
Gnar - This first member of the Gnar family is made entirely of high-grade aspen. The lightweight, vertical wood laminates reduce overall board weight while still providing a responsive ride. Grainbelt technology adds critical strength.
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: Freeride
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
  • 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: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for snowboards, and still popular among high-level park and pipe riders because it offers maximum energy and pop. A cambered board has a smooth arch underfoot and touches near the tip and tail when unweighted; when the rider’s weight is added, it provides a long, evenly pressured running surface and edge.
  • 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.
