Forum Rat Snowboard Review – 2011

Forum Rat Snowboard

The Forum rat snowboard is an urban dweller’s dream. Not only is this thing amazing, it has pretty cool all black graphic. The base is absolutely phenomenal. Look at that, “no trespassing, private property”, I absolutely love it. This board, even though it’s an urban type board, actually has camber with pop. The camber with pop that Forum has, creates a larger surface area in between the nose and the tail where the board actually sits on the snow with an effective edge. So it seems to me like there’s more camber right here instead of just from the nose to the tail. So, you’ll be able to get a little bit more pop with this board.

It has a Bad Ass core. That’s actually what it’s called. A tip to tail laminate wood core aspen and poplar. And re-enforced wood 45 degree laminates underneath the bindings for more stability and more indestructibility for this board. It has Bad Ass glass as well. Bad Ass glass is 90 degree glass and zero degree glass, but it has 18% more; and it’s 20% stronger than the normal Biax fiberglass that Forum Snowboards has. It has a free base; you’re not going to have to worry about this too much. It’s going to stay quick; it’s going to stay low-maintenance all season long. It does have a beveled edge. It has a three degree beveled edge right out of the factory, so you won’t have to round these things off. So if you’re in the parking lot or you are riding a rail or a box or ledge or whatever you’re not going to catch up on the ledge with these three-degree beveled edges. The Forum Rat, all black, rad graphic, flex of a 2, if you weigh over a hundred pounds you’ll be able to flex this thing no problem. Check it out.

  1. I got this, it’s soo good. You can ollie like a foot and a half no prob. It’s easy to manuver all over the mountain. I rode it for 9hr it’s perfect, but there are a few scratches. But when it says pop, it means it. Jumps are easy with it. Overall great board, but hard to find.
