Editors' Choice, Top Pick and Best Buy awards granted for the Women's Snowboard Review.
The winners are as follows:
Editors' Choice - Gnu Ladies Choice
Testers agree that "Ladies Choice" is a pretty accurate title, deeming it "Editors' Choice" as well. While this product shines in the park, it can also perform in any conditions imaginable. It carves groomers, hits jibs, surfs powder and crushes landings. As an asymmetrical twin board, it harmonizes the rider's natural movement, making turns effortlessly instinctive and making switch riding seamless. Testers found that "The Magne-Traction edge helps you out just when you need it - and stays out of the way when you don't." Overall, this gem is an all-around consistent performer that will push you to progress, whether you're a novice or a veteran.
Best Buy Award - Arbor Swoon
With a price tag of a mere $450, the Swoon takes the cake for the Best Buy award. Described by reviewers as a "true quiver-killer"
Top Pick for Power - Jones Twin Sister
The Twin Sister is a "freerider's dream come true", which is why it earned the Top Pick for powder riding. Its blend of a set back stance, blunt nose, and a directional twin set-up makes powder surfing easy and intuitive. The blunt nose allows the plank to move smooth and swift through the deepest of powder and the magnetraction edges provide a trustworthy hold in even the iciest conditions. Overall, it was the testers' go to when they wanted to get after the slack-country freshies.
