Drake Tao of Drake Snowboard

In reality, the gender categories for snowboards are far from cut and dry. Over the years we’ve seen female-specific boards take a heavy influence from a men’s model, and (latterly, and to a lesser extent) vice versa. It’s also not uncommon to find a rider using a board that’s technically aimed at the opposite gender, because it better suits their physical profile.

Who Is The Drake Tao of Drake For?

Despite this novel approach, this certainly isn’t for everyone. Unless you favour the JP Walker approach of riding park to warm up for the street, you’d be better off on something with an all-mountain focus. Freestyle fiends will love it though.

Drake DFL Pro Women’s Snowboard

A redesigned option in the Drake line-up this season, the DFL Pro is unashamedly a women’s board that absolutely froths for freestyle. A favourite of Drake team rippers Veroniqi Hanssen and Lia-Mara Bosch, the DFL Pro destroys in the streets as much as it does in the terrain park. A versatile directional twin shape means you’re not confined to the park, but you’ll reap the benefits of the balanced outline when you do decide to get airborne. And get airborne you will, with the carbon rod running through the centre of the board, it’s poppier than ever. It’s a bit too advanced for novices, with the stiffer flex and reactive internal layup, but experienced riders have at it.


Drake Reload Snowboard Bindings 2022-2023

PRICE: £195

Some choice upgrades for 22/23 ensure the Drake Reload remains a firm favourite among the Drake team. A freestyle focused binding that puts the onus on comfort and support, the Reload comes in unisex sizing to pair nicely with their Whitelines 100 winning snowboard, the Tao of Drake. The updated baseplate offers a stable platform underfoot, whilst the dampening gel in the heel soaks up chatter and takes some of the slap out of big landings. Toolless adjustment in the straps keeps things nice and simple, while the asymmetric shaping ensures you get increased support with a locked-in feel. You can’t fault the pricing here, either.


Northwave Devine Snowboard Boot

The stiffest boot in Northwave’s women’s line, the Devine Hybrid is designed for experienced riders who value comfort as much as they do performance. With its 7/10 flex, the Domino Hybrid has enough gas in the tank for charging on piste but won’t inhibit you when you want to take a playful lap through the park. As the Hybrid model, as you’ve probably guessed this iteration of the Devine uses a combo lacing system. You’ve got Northwave’s Speed Lace on the side and a dial so you can really find the fit that works for you. The liner is thermo moldable for increased comfort, with the rubberised sole for added traction.



Northwave Domino Snowboard Boot

One of Northwave’s most enduring models, the Domino isn’t as fragile as it might sound. In fact, it’s their sturdiest boot, built to withstand ground-shaking landings off giant kickers and long days charging the backcountry. There are two models to choose from this year. First up, the 2Spin utilises their spin technology for greater heel lock than ever before, while the second dial closes the front of the boot snug around your foot. Meanwhile, the SLS model features their Super Lace Single system for smooth entry and exit. Both feature toasty liners with grippy outsoles to stop any slippery mishaps during après.
