Weston snowboards have been heard in the whispers of backcountry riders for a few years now, and this year they’re coming to Europe. Their Backwoods Carbon board is a true backcountry dream.
Legit back country snowboarders, Weston are committed to making all of their products in a fashion that helps riders truly experience what freeriding is all about. With their powder-focused designs, Weston are bringing new ideas to the scene.
“New for this year is a full carbon topsheet and aluminum stringers that are sandwiched within the core”
The Backwoods’ pointed noise and blunted tail is designed to help you effortlessly surf on the deepest days. The board utilises a directional multi-radial camber rocker. Bit of a mouthful, but the result is simple perfection: plenty of lift in the nose, a setback stance to drive the tail down, direct power transmission between the feet, and a sidecut designed to make every turn feel as smooth and powerful as a protein shake-guzzling grizzly bear.
In true Weston fashion, the Backwoods utilises their strongest core. Weston’s lightweight Strike Wood Core features infused vertical aluminium stringers and Paulownia wood laminated at forty-five degrees to further back up the insane strength.
And chuck in the Electra Sintered Base, infused with carbon additives to maximise speed, and a carbon-weave topsheet which replaces fibreglass, and it quickly becomes apparent where this board gets its name from.
With all that tech the board is bound to sting the wallet a little more. But for the rider who understands how priceless the deepest days are, it could be one to add to the quiver.
