They say: Slash the whole mountain with top speed and power.

We say: Drake’s standard cambered all-terrain killer, the DF1 has been a staple of the company’s line for years. Not as playful as rocker boards, but stable and good at speed. Drake’s ‘Gum Walls’ tech helps it cut through crud.

Tester says: Super solid with great flex and pop.

About Drake

  • Building boards since: 2007
  • HQ: Onigo, Italy
  • 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.
