Weston Backwoods Snowboard 2024

You're not the type to go straight down the gut of the most obvious runs. You ride a Weston Backwoods Snowboard, for crying out loud! A freeride board in the shape of a powder chaser, the backwoods excels at all points of your deep snow search. It's very capable through the variable conditions that may show up on your way to the way out, like wind-scoured traverses or icy entrances, getting you to the goods in one piece. And when that secret run opens up into an untracked bowl, the Backwoods goes full-on pow blaster. A fantastic daily driver for deep-snow areas.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker

Directional Freeride CamberSubtle rocker in the nose and tail provide additional float without losing stability. Camber underfoot provides confident edge hold and pop

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Tapered DirectionalA larger nose provides float in deep snow, while a tapered tail helps to initiate turns quicker.

Core

91% Poplar + 9% BambooSustainably harvested, the blend keeps the board smooth and surfy with a good amount of pop

Laminates

Tri-Axe GlassMulti-axis, stitched fiberglass laminate that offers a precise and responsive ride in any ­terrain or snow conditions.

Carbon Fiber StringersStringers running the length of the board increase stiffness throughout. By placing them near the center, the board doesn’t become overly stiff torsionally, making for easy turn initiation. They also allow for equivalent stiffness with less core material needed, reducing overall weight.

Sidewalls

PolyurethanePolyurethane is poured during construction to form a single, unified piece of sidewall wrapping around the entire core for increased strength and durability. Because of this process, it also creates less waste material than other sidewall options.

Base

Sintered Durasurf 4001The gold standard in bases. The 4000-series sintered bases have a higher density than other options on the market, and are therefore more durable. Additionally, it absorbs more wax, making for a faster and smoother ride. 4000-series PTEX is usually reserved for only top-of-the-line boards due to a higher manufacturing cost, but at Weston it’s the minimum standard.
