The Flow Micron Chill has had a few tweaks for its latest winter - not least that slightly pointed nose and tail, an unusual sight in a kids board. While that doesn’t make a huge difference to the ride, it’s a good indicator that this board is made for those moving well past those sketchy first turns.
"The mellow flex and true twin shape make it just as fun for messing about in the park, or on the piste"
Unlike the majority of kids boards, the Flow Micron Chill features a sintered base (a new feature for 2017/18), so it’ll carry a grom along as fast as they dare. It does require more regular upkeep than its extruded equivalent, but you get out what you put in.
The profile is also a little more techy than your average grom vehicle. It’s a mostly cambered construction, broken up with flat sections that make it a little easier to stay afloat in pow, or to take to boxes and rails. It can hold an edge when you need it to, and delivers more pop than flat-based or rocker boards.
At the same time, it’s no out-and-out charger. The mellow flex and true twin shape make it just as fun for messing about in the park, or on the piste. Thanks with its new wide sizes, the Flow Micron is also perfect for kids whose feet are currently outgrowing the rest of them.

"I liked it - it felt playful and was good for buttering and ollies. It was a teeny bit small for me, but I still enjoyed it. I like the shape of the nose too, and it looks pretty cool. The graphics are kind of non-graphics - nice and simple."
"This is a solid board with simple graphics that wouldn't embarrass your kid on the hill. The testers rode it pretty well despite it being a bit small for them.
There’s nothing massively right or wrong with it; it’s a good all round board. It did the job, and the testers had a fun day on the hill"
