The Best Men's Snowboards
Our favorite board was the Arbor Clovis, which we think is a seriously fast board that is made for carving graceful turns on the corduroy. It has a narrow waist, which makes it quick side-to-side, but it does suffer a little when it comes to deep pow. For riders that like to spend half their time in the park, the Lib Tech Attck Banana was our runner-up, and we found it to be extremely versatile. Unique to the rest of the boards in our test, it has rocker between the feet, which gives it a loose feel while riding.
For our 2016-2017 winter snowboard test, we took a selection of boards from California to Utah to Wyoming and tested them on all types of terrain, from powder to groomers, park to chopped up variable snow and exciting side-country runs. Evaluating each board next to the others let us determine which are the best.
