Snowboard Iskola

Board: Nerd Superposition

Size: 157

Camber Option: Directional camrocker. More rocker in the nose with a flat section before the camber section and a tiny rocker in the tail.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: A mix of blue skies with high gray clouds, zero wind, average temps, perfect corduroy, chop, chunder, and heavy left over pow.

Flex: With a fully directional flex you get a slightly softer nose that progressively stiffens back up to the tail. The torsional flex is very minimal. Overall it’s a freeride flex but it’s not a domineering one that makes you question your life choices it’s more predictable but still on the slightly stiffer side.

Stability: This board is super stable. The only chatter you get is way out at the nose and it dissipates fully before getting to your front foot. In rutted out terrain it plows through everything and just wants to keep going.

Ollies/Pop: With the camber being slightly set back and having a micro rocker in the tail you have the makings for a perfect springboard. Loading the camber section up takes a tiny amount of effort and when you roll back onto the rocker it just propels you into the air. This boards spring is highly predictable and doesn’t force you to be overly calculated to launch anything.

Butterability: You can sit on the tail and go sideways with a little bit of work. The nose is pointy so in firm conditions it can be a bit hooky, my suggestion is find something steeper and with more pow and you’ll be golden.

Carving: Alright now here’s where we have to talk about how well this board turns and carves. This deck has some of the quickest and easiest turn initiation I’ve ever experienced. The edge to edge transmission is super smooth and fluid, it engages midway between the insert pack and the rocker in the nose. On edge it steers from right under the front foot but drives from the center of the board back through the tail. The power you get out of the tail lets you crank a hard turn. Short tight quick carves are easy and require minimal adjustments of your ankle when steering it. When you want to dig it in hard and lay a trench go for it and know that it’s not going to be hard to get it to do what you want. Overall this is a dream of a board to carve on.

Rider in Mind: All mountain freeride guy that likes to turn.

Personal Thoughts: You never know with a new brand how their stuff is going to ride. There’s a lot of middling boards out there that you get on and just think to yourself “well it’s a snowboard” this is NOT one of them. This boards ability to turn just stands out. The shape, camber, sidecut, and flex all work in conjunction to give you a board that can turn and turn well. It stands out as being a great first option from a new brand. I will say that maybe there is some bias here because I’m friends with the owner and was there when he came up with the concept of this and what he wanted to do, but knowing that he spent the time for R and D, giving feedback to the shaper and factory, and didn’t rush it I’m happy with what he came up with.
