Reviewer Alex

"Which board has the highest limits on every terrain? Push and enjoy it to the max everywhere. Adrenaline comes from sharp long carves till blinding amounts of fresh snow in the woods. All-mountain snowboards should be able to handle it all."

To all my reviews

 

Shape is promising


Flow Enigma (tested length: 159 cm)has a typical directional shape which gives it the looks of a fast powder and power tool. You actually won't need to be an expert to ride it comfortly anywhere. For me the Flow Enigma excels in crud and tracked terrain where it is a lot of fun to ride. For carving the stiffness shows its limits, especially on icier pistes. You can ride the Enigma around in any turn size you like, just don't push it to the extremes. For better riders the Flow Enigma can feel rather playful, for intermediates maybe a challenge.

Good off-piste

The Flow Enigma is quite good in powder where you are less dependent on the stiffness and edge grip. It floats and surfs easy. Here the pow-cam (camber under the feet with a flat part in between) gives it a nice bite without losing the comfort factor. In that way the Enigma is an allround snowboard that can easily handle all slopes and can take intermediates to start exploring the backcountry. For my kind of boarder it is nice but not extreme enough I guess, 3.5 stars. 

Flow about the Enigma

"There is nothing mysterious about shredding powder and groomers.", says Flow.
