This beast has all the attributes a snowboard needs in order to be considered a high charging performance board. The Drake Team snowboard is a legend amongst the line, preferred by plenty of Drake’s own team riders because of its all-in-one essence. If you’re looking for a true sender, this stick will help you charge on and beyond the slopes.
You can always rely on a classic camber profile to give you a great ride. This old-school profiled favourite gives you pop for days, making it an ideal choice for hitting the bigger features in the park. Not only that, but it also provides impeccable edge hold, speed and response – yeah, no wonder this thing is a favourite with the Drake team.
“New for this year are hollow, curved carbon rods on each side, running parallel to the sidecut”
The core of the Team is made of Aspen, which makes it light and flexy while also keeping the board responsive and robust. Even if it feels light you won’t need to worry about breaking this when speeding up and blasting through whatever comes your way – it can take a beating.
For the hard charging gents out there, Drake’s added the Sintra 8000 base to make sure you can speed up faster than Usain Bolt on steroids. The nano additives in the base hold heat like they’ve been moulded in the flames of hell, only to then unleash and make this thing as fast as it is. This process works by breaking the surface tension of snow and reducing friction – resulting in a super smooth ride.
On top of all that tech, there’s also a naked lady embellishing the top sheet of this thing. Whether it’s right or wrong to stick naked women on top of snowboards is debatable (it’s 2019 / 2020 guys) but Drake’s effort here is eye-catching if nothing else.
This is a hard charging board, made to please the more advanced riders out there. It might be a bit too violent for beginners, so if you’re still trying to master your turns you might want to consider purchasing something less aggressive.
