Intermediate+ all-mountain boarder
Jeffrey's rating of this snowboard:
Considering his boarders profile:
"An all-mountain snowboard's most important quality is versatility. To me that means a comfortable ride on any terrain, so that I can play with snow all day. No need for a struggle on extreme stiff boards when you can have fun as well."
My favourite all-mountain snowboards:
1. K2 Turbo Dream
2. Ride Berzerker
More to come
Cool graphics, great ride
I found the Ride Berzeker a very pleasant ride. This all-mountain board has a great dampening system, and therefore it gave me confidence and comfort on all terrain. The Berzerker itself felt quite stiff, something that I really like. And because of that, it has an amazing response to bodily movements. I loved it! However, for the same reason, this is not a beginners board. You have to put in some effort to make it work, but it will give you lots of fun in return! Plus it has some amazing graphics on the topsheet too!
Support machine for growth
The reason why I gave the Ride Berzerker board a five star rating, is that this all-mountain board is coming close to the perfect board for me. It makes me feel confident on it and I know this board could definitely take me to the next level as a rider. And on top of that, it has some amazing graphics too!
Ride about the Berzerker
"The RIDE Berzerker is one of our most energetic all-mountain snowboard shapes, and a winner of the 2015 Good Wood award for its Performance Tuned™ core strung through with carbon rods that provide super-packed pop without any lifeless rigidity. Whether you shoot straight, carve cord, or throw a nasty method in the park, this board with RIDE’s signature Slimewalls® complements any riding style. Like RIDE pro and co-designer Jake Blauvelt, the Berzerker is at home anywhere on the mountain.", says Ride. You don't feel a thing from the so-called rocker in front of the board most of the time. The Berzerker does however have a very nice float off-piste, that must be it.
Arbor Roundhouse: to me both the Roundhouse as the Berzeker are quite alike. However I like the print on the Berzeker better ;-).
Burton Custom Flying V: although not a camber board, it has very similar qualities in turn initiation, dampening and versatility.
Salomon Drift Rocker: also an amazing all-round shredboard but with more focus on freeride and playfulness!
