We’ve hand-selected a list of our Top 5 All-Mountain Freestyle Snowboards of 2019, for those who can’t seem to stick to one part of the resort. We’ve grabbed boards from Burton, Rossignol, Ride, Capita, and DC, to give you a little taste of what we believe provide the best all-mountain versatility. Whether you’re blasting out of the pipe, slapping steel, or taking it to the back bowls, these decks are proven to be true all mountain ATV’s. Each one of these boards is crafted with the idea that one board can rule them all and while you’re struggling to max out your snowboard quiver others are simply grabbing one of these and blasting the doors off everyone else on the way down.
A true board of many hats, the 2019 Burton Custom Snowboard is Burton’s all-mountain freestyle machine that wreaks havoc among its more futile rival snowboards on the hill. It is not uncommon to see this board under the feet of a plethora of different riders from pipe jocks, jumping jimmys and even the park rats have grown fond of the Burton Customs tried and true profile. Its directional twin shape gives it a real feel while standing forward but performs just as well in a switch mode when need be. True OG’s will appreciate its traditional camber profile that adds plenty of pop, edge control, and energy throughout the entire profile. A little on the stiffer side, we settled this deck at a 6/10, but Burton’s Squeezebox Core profiling gives this board some torsional flex by milling the core in different zones through the length of the deck. The Burton Custom is tried, true and authentic to those camber junkie all-mountain goats who crave strong snap, pop, and life out of their boards.

The 2019 Rossignol One LF has been deemed the most versatile all-mountain board in the Rossignol arsenal. The One LF is the deck of choice when you can only have one board to rule them all. The LF in the name of this deck stands for Lite Frame which is Rossignol’s industry-first L.I.T.E Frame technology which mills the core of this deck in the nose and tail, for a featherweight construction to reduce swing weight. Its directional twin shape allows for a board that performs great on the corduroy and just as well in the powder. The trick lies in the edges of this deck, the One LF features a RadCut sidecut that adds serrated contact points throughout the length of the edge to add traction and grip on icy and hardpack terrain that normally would let your edges slip out. The Rossignol One LF is a leading deck in the industry and reigns as the weapon of choice for many big league riders.
Shape: Directional Twin
Profile: Hybrid, AmpTek All-Mountain
Stance: Set Back 1.3CM
Core: FSC Certified L.I.T.E. Wood CBF1
Edge: Standard Steel/Serrated Edges + Radcut
Generals gathered in their masses! The 2019 Ride Warpig has continued to blow minds and turn heads since its first season in production three years ago. The Warpig is different yet simple. Short, wide and a ton of fun. Ride took the liberty of sizing this decks in actual “sizes” instead of centimeter lengths. This year they feature the Warpig in Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large and Extra Deep. This board’s directional twin shape gives a deceiving look but don’t let that steer you away from landing this thing switch it still will get the job done. A flat camber construction makes it stable at higher speeds and playful when needed while the reverse camber in the nose gives some float in deeper snow. The Warpig has been deemed a true all-terrain battle destroyer with its award-winning shape, ingenuity and authentic design. Don’t be alarmed to see this deck on multiple sides of your local resort as its feel on snow appeals to a wide range of riders from park kids, powder dads and corduroy jims. Fall in and get to the front lines with the 2019 Ride Warpig.
Shape: Directional Twin
Profile: Flat/Early Rise Reverse Camber

The 2019 Capita Defenders Of Awesome, also known as the DOA, has a big bark in the snowboard industry and an even bigger bite on snow. This highly sought after series has won a Transworld Good Wood Award every single year of its 6-year existence. The Defenders Of Awesome is a true twin shape with a soft spot for the entire mountain. Its next-generation hybrid camber design delivers the pop and response of a cambered snowboard with the predictability of reverse camber, by adding a predominantly camber zone outside of the inserts, flat camber to the contact points, and a slight reverse camber in the tips. Capita took the liberty of offering a nearly bulletproof board by adding kevlar bound sidewalls through the deck to help reinforce any hits or shots you’re going to take to your board. 2 X 30mm carbon fiber beams are added through the running length of the profile for added pop and longevity in this deck’s life. The Capita DOA is one of the most widely desired decks in snowboarding today, as a battle-scarred veteran who has never taken themselves out of the war of defending awesome.
Shape: True Twin
Core: FSC Certified Dual Core
Fiberglass: Biax Blend
Laminates: Kevlar Bound Sidewalls/Carbon Fiber Beams
Edge: Standard Steel Edge
The 2019 DC PBJ Snowboard is the last deck in our top 5 all-mountain board list. A little more of a playful vibe introduces itself in the PBJ with its true twin shape and soft true camber profile. The true twin shape allows this board to be a versatile vessel all over the resort from jumping cat tracks, riding parks, or pointing the local leg burner trail. A traditional camber profile adds energy to load up on when popping off from lips and transitions and provides solid edge hold while turning. This deck’s Poplar and Beech blended core make a board that is durable, but also lightweight, and agile underfoot. This board is made for that rider looking for a deck with a true camber feel, playful personality, and a lightweight design. The 2019 DC PBJ Snowboard is your ticket to an all-terrain experience filled with good time.
