Whether you are looking for mens snowboards or women’s snowboards, you want the features that will give you the perfect ride for the terrain you’re on, and what you want to do on it. Start by reading the reviews and features of different brands to keep up with the latest.
Here’s one example: The women’s Promise snowboard ‘10 from Ride includes several lightweight woods in its “Performance Tuned Core” for an all-terrain board designed to be responsive. But any snow pro knows to consider many features when snowboard shopping, such as the length of the effective edge. A longer edge is more stable, but a shorter edge turns more easily. So if you plan to hit the terrain park a lot this year, you may want a shorter edge. But if you’re going down the mountain more than a few times, you might appreciate the control of a board with a longer effective edge.
