Snowboard Iskola

Board: Telos Legend

Buy it here:

Size: 154

Camber Option: Dual camber with center micro rocker. So you have camber section underfoot then it dips inside the inserts through the middle but is still elevated so it’s not a full reverse like some other hybrids and finally there’s rocker in the tips. This is overly complicated.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: A mix of low and high visibility, clouds, a little wind, left over powder, firm fast groomers, lumpy runs, and cold temps.

Flex: This board has a real unique flex pattern. It feels stiffer than it is when you’re charging but it’s playful when you absolutely need it to be. With the way the camber section works it makes the board playful from inside the insert pack back out to the rocker in the tips but keeps the internals stiffer. The torsional flex is there but has a lot of rebound to it.

Stability: The center of this board really lends itself to being stable, while the rocker in the tips does get some flap it’s not enough to kill you in uneven terrain. In fact if anything it helps your board climb over variable terrain and let you move forward. Now I’m not saying this is the most damp thing on the planet but it’s smooth where it counts.

Ollies: The snap is there and it’s easy to engage this board to get pop. It takes very little effort and feels like a well broken in board that you’ve popped with a hundred times.

Pop On Jumps: Hitting a few hips and popping off the lip you get a nice snap that just tosses you up and out. It helps you when you want it to, but doesn’t force you to have to be highly calculated and overload it to boost.

Butterability: The rocker in the tips coupled with that that unique flex point inside the bindings lets you leverage your weight out over the nose and tail. This lets you just bend the board to your whim while it still retains its snap. Sure you might feel a little fight from it but that isn’t enough to kill you.

Jibbing: This boards fully at home on rails. It just locks into a press and holds it with relative ease. The nice thing is with the flex point being inside the binding insert pack you can easily manipulate a press. Going sideways the board cradles the feature but doesn’t clap out.

Carving: So this is where this board stands out. The sidecut just wants to turn and when you’re throwing your weight hard into this board you can lay it over, or you can be more laid back and let it just sit on edge. It locks in and feels secure but has this presence of not being a board you have to aggressively fight to drive it even if you want to.

Rider in Mind: Park focused all mountain rider.

Personal Thoughts: This is the most unique board I’ve ridden from Telos to date. It’s a midwide twin that should be more park focused but it handles outside the park super well. It locks into carves and drives easily, yet you can snap off anything in your path with ease. It’s a board that just feels super well balanced and has key defined flex points that work to its advantage.
