Why we chose the Endeavor BOD Snowboard: A deadly black on black aesthetic meets big tech and even bigger all-mountain performance.
Producing a stand-out all-mountain board in today’s crowded one-quiver-solution market place is no easy task. Rather than quietly follow along with the masses, Endeavor’s B.O.D. has moved away from the routine traditions of directional twin shapes and camrock profiles to, instead, come up with their unique take on that elusive ‘box ticker’ of a snowboard that blends float, pop, grip and a double-barrel dose of fun.
The 3D Camber shape does most of the heavy lifting here. The base and edge around the contact points have been bevelled slightly upwards, giving the nose and tail a subtle spoon shape. This allows the nose of the B.O.D. to surf through soft snow and go from piste to pow without so much as a moment’s hesitation.
“The B.O.D takes the key components of a powder quiver and a park destroyer and blends them into a concoction of pure all-mountain performance”
It’s not a powder specific snowboard, however. Rather, the B.O.D takes the key components of a powder quiver and a park destroyer and blends them into a concoction of pure all-mountain performance. Sure, the base profile helps to push snow out from underneath, but there’s still a positive camber running for its full length, as well as a true twin shape. And we all know where that comes in handy.
