Drake Risto Mattila Pro Model Snowboard 2010/11 Review
Sizes: 153, 155, 157
They say: Risto’s ultimate freestyle machine. We say: Risto Mattila has been around for years, killing it in the pipe, on big airs and in slopestyle comps. The conventional camber and mid-flex helps him do all of that. Like Mr Mattila, this freestyle board doesn’t specialise in one particular area. Tester says: Sick graphic – who wouldn’t want to ride a half naked chick in stockings?
History lesson: The brand name Drake first appeared in 1997, when Northwave, a Italian snowboard boot-maker decided to branch out into bindings. Drake bindings had a reputation for being pretty much indestructible. Drake didn’t start building boards until ten years later, but they’ve already developed a pretty good reputation for quality at a decent price.
Ridden by: Shredders who are looking for a board that looks pimp, and rides pimp, but doesn’t cost as much as a full-blown pimpin’ lifestyle.
