Powder

Whereas there was numerous contemporary snow round it had been rained on making it heavy, gradual, and considerably sticky nevertheless it nonetheless gave us a fairly good thought of how it will journey in powder.

It dealt with even this moist heavy powder fairly effortlessly more often than not. It does have 8mm of taper plus a setback stance, each of which naturally sink the tail whereas the rocker within the nostril retains you afloat with ease. The stiffer flex additionally helps hold you from over flexing.

Skidded Turns: Dealt with them properly the camber beneath the toes feels predictable and steady whereas the rockered nostril makes for no catchiness by any means, at any pace. 

Pace

Due to the camber simply being underneath the toes it is not as fast as a full camber board however total it nonetheless has an excellent quantity and it does not get chattery permitting it to be steady at increased speeds. Additionally had an excellent quantity of glide which was a pleasant shock.

Bumps: Like said earlier than, it is fast edge-to-edge permitting you to maneuver by way of bumps good and simple. For sure terrain, like within the timber, when your going up and down bumps I discovered it simple to hug them if you needed to.

Jumps

Total the Territory Supervisor feels good and easy when hitting jumps.

Pop: Has an excellent quantity of pop that was simply accessible as I discovered it did not require a lot of a load as much as get all of it, which is right for smaller jumps or flat floor spins.

Method:  Fast edge-to-edge permitting you to really feel assured in your approaches as your in a position to make final second changes if wanted. And likewise steady sufficient for sooner approaches. 

Touchdown: Did not discover the board catchy on the landings in any respect. You can additionally get away with touchdown tail heavy and journey out with minimal effort. I discovered the width actually helped with landings too because it absorbed impacts actually properly. 

Aspect-hits: Actually loved it on side-hits. Tremendous predictable really feel beneath the board, coupled with that pop made any dimension facet hit fulfilling. 

Small jumps/Huge jumps: Actually succesful on any dimension bounce however I discovered the medium sized one’s is had been it was optimum. 

Swap

Swap driving felt fairly simple and easy on the Territory supervisor. Transitions weren’t catchy by any means and despite the fact that it is directional it feels near true twin – absolutely able to touchdown or taking-off change on greater side-hits or jumps permitting you to throw 180s and 540s with confidence.

Butters

Discovered the nostril and tail pressable with a little bit of effort. I most well-liked to make use of the boards pop to essentially assist get the presses began as I discovered simply leaning right into a press required some work, largely because of the board being on the stiffer facet 

Rating Breakdown and Ultimate Verdict

Try the breakdown of the rating within the desk beneath.

The Territory Supervisor is a flexible snowboard greater than able to being ridden anyplace on the mountain. It does have freeride leanings, however very a lot on the all-mountain facet of issues. 

With only a few weaknesses, the Territory Supervisor carves actually properly, has a stable quantity of pop for side-hits and feels near a real twin permitting you to leap off and land on something with confidence. 

Total I anticipated a much less versatile/nimble board. I figured it was going to only be a one observe powder specialist, and while it does excel at powder, it was actually fulfilling all around the mountain. And was very able to issues I did not suppose it will be.
