Best New Women’s Snowboards 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

Oddly enough, in snowboarding ‘stale’ isn’t usually a bad word. You’ve got the classic Stalefish grab, always a crowd pleaser. You’ve got Ståle Sandbech, again, always a crowd pleaser. Really, the only time we don’t like things being stale, is when it’s the boards available to us. New snowboards getting released spurs the rest of the industry to up its standards. The introduction of new tech and materials sparks a trickle-down response that eventually sweeps through the whole industry- that is, until the next new thing is released.

“The introduction of new tech and materials sparks a trickle-down response that eventually sweeps through the whole industry”

Trends can begin within the industry when innovative new shapes are introduced, take the boom of short, wide powder boards that flooded the market over the last few years for instance. Boards like the YES 420, K2 Cool Bean and Gnu Free Spirit came bursting onto the scene and shaped a new generation of riders. Some trends come full circle, swallow tails, for example, were seen back in the 70’s, and died a bit of a death before coming back bigger than ever.

Twin tips snowboards were once just a pipe dream. Magnetraction was just a concept. Triple Base Technology was scoffed at. Carbon and Kevlar lay up? Have a laugh. We love putting together this list of Best New Snowboards, because it’s a glimpse of what we might be riding for the next however many seasons. It’s our chance to see just how creative we can be in the pursuit of the perfect sideways slide.

Each and every snowboard in this list got the seal of approval from the Whitelines Test Team. So, have a gander at the Best New Snowboards for winter 2019-2020, and start your shopping list now.
