Best Value Women’s Snowboards 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

We all love a shiny new bit of kit, don’t we? Our bank balance, however, might not be as keen on a new set up as we are. When you’re paying a few hundred quid for a week ski pass, you’re gonna want to save a few pennies where you can. Short of building your own Frankenstein board or heading into a rental shop to walk out with a board 15cm too big and older than you, the options can seem limited. But fear not! We’ve searched long and hard over the past winter and put a helluva lot of equipment through its paces. We’ve scoured trade shows and trawled on-snow demos hunting for the best value snowboards of 2019-2020.

“We’ve scoured trade shows and trawled on-snow demos hunting for the best value snowboards of 2019-2020”

Good value is all relative though, a £3000 snowboard may seem pretty steep to most of us. But, when you find out the carbon stringers are interwoven with Shaun White’s pubes and guarantee that you’ll ride like him, it all seems a bit more worth it. Unfortunately (fortunately?) we didn’t find any boards with this particular additive, but we have found a buttload of boards that we think fit the bill. These aren’t just the cheapest boards on the market, these are all high quality, well-made products with a bafflingly small price tag. Neither are they all beginner boards, they’re the boards we felt performed above and beyond what you could reasonably expect from the price tag.

Each and every snowboard in this list got the seal of approval from the Whitelines Test Team. For arguments sake, we’ve capped the list at a £400 maximum price tag otherwise we could go on all day.

Head Everything Women’s Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £300 / €370

The Everything provides an easy and versatile ride along with all of the necessary tools, not just to get your snowboarding journey started, but to take it up to a confident all-mountain level. Despite its ability to provide an easy-going cruise for those less confident, it’s not a ‘beginner board’ that you’ll find yourself growing out of in the first week. For £300 it’s an absolute no brainer.

The Distortia is a truly versatile mountain slayer with a massive penchant for fun and progression, powerful enough to tackle any terrain and playful enough for hot laps in the park.

    Bataleon She-W Women’s Snowboard 2019-2020

    PRICE: £399 / €470

    The SheDub is a veritable freestyle weapon, and is one of only a few truly high-end women’s jib boards on the market. A hollow carbon rod down the length of the board increases the pop without adding extra stiffness or weight to the board, while additional carbon stringers underfoot make it torsionally a little stiffer to keep it stable when you’re going a bit faster.

In our humble opinion Bataleon’s Triple Base is the ultimate learning tool, as it allows you to make mistakes and have wobbles without punishing you for it. It’s a super mellow, catch free, ride that’ll stop the ‘oh shit I don’t wanna face plant’ panic when you’re snowboarding.

While it won’t be the most stable at speed, it is a confidence boosting set-up to keep you progressing. If you’re after a board that will allow you to progress steadily without kicking your arse for making mistakes, then the DC Biddy is definitely one to consider.
