They say: Versatile all-mountain freestyle board.
We say: DC have put a rocker profile on this twin tip to make it nice and forgiving for beginners, but it’s also a freestyle stick that’d suit any park rat. That relatively stiff flex rating means you can keep riding this long after you’ve linked your first turns.
Tester says: Nice, simple graphics, lovely ride, super smooth.

- History lesson: DC may have only moved into making snowboards in the last few seasons, but already boasts one of the best ranges and sickest pro teams on the planet. How, you may well ask? Because when it comes to board sports, the brand has a pedigree that would piss all over any Crufts winner. The company was founded as a maker of skate shoes by Californians Ken Block and Damon Way in 1993, and started making snowboard boots shortly afterwards. Now owned by Quiksilver, the brand is still going strong.
- Ridden by: Ever seen a G-off in the park? You know, when two people stick their hands up to drop at the same time, and then have a bit of eyeballing and shoulder-dusting to decide who got there first? Well chances are at least one of those kids was riding DC.
