How to Choose a Backcountry Snowboard
As with all skiing and snowboarding equipment, you'll want to keep several considerations in mind when selecting from our world-class backcountry snowboards for men. Start by answering the following questions:
How much flex do you want out of your board? All backcountry snowboards have a flex rating of soft, medium or stiff. What's the difference? Soft flex boards give you great turning accuracy. On the other hand, they can chatter at high speeds. For faster snowboards, aim for a stiff board or select a medium flex backcountry board for a "down the middle" option.
What type of snowboard shape do you need? The shape of your snowboard will affect how well you can pivot and handle switchbacks. Directional snowboards give you the ability to cut through the snowy slopes with ease and agility. True twin and directional twin boards mount down the middle and give you more stability on switches.
Is the snowboard's weight important to you? Some snowboards are heavier than others. This might not be a big deal, but if you're planning to hike a lot through rural areas, you might want to choose a lighter snowboard that's easier to carry for long distances.
