2011 Artec Pop Rocker Snowboard Review

Artec Snowboards, Snowboard Bindings, Men's, Women'sThis is the Artec Pop Rocker. It is a twin, freestyle reverse-cambered snowboard that is a freestyle shred machine. It is twin, it is blunted, and it is going to make you a better snowboarder all over the place. Its sidewalls are one of my favorite things ever besides Nutella and Cups of Tea. The DiTec sidewalls are pretty cool. Towards the tip and the tail there is actually a softer ABS sidewall, so that you can flex on your tail and nose a little bit more. In the midsection, there is a little bit more firm ABS sidewall, and both sidewalls are at 30 degrees.

The core is a SuproTec; it is a combination of both aspen and poplar wood laminates that run from tip to tail. The glass is a ComposiTec reinforced beam, Carbon Kevlar NorTec composite. The glass is pretty interesting. There is Kevlar inserts and beams that run tip and tail on this thing. The Artec Pop Rocker is very snappy and very quick. The base is a gamma, highly porous base. When you wax this thing, it’s going to absorb the wax; it’s going to store the wax; it’s going to keep the wax inside. The shape, of course, is the pop tech rocker shape. It’s a rocker board, and it has a lot of pop to it. It is twin, like I said before. The flex rating is a 3 nice flex and the Tec star rating that Artec has given this pop rocker board a 5. Anyway, on that Guv, thanks for coming out ladies and gentlemen. Artec is where it’s at!
