Best Park Snowboards for Men

Gnu Headspace 2016

Gnu Headspace

Get on the same wavelength as Forest Bailey with his signature Gnu Headspace PBTX Snowboard. Forest's choice for throwing down on the streets and in the park, the Headspace is a jib-focused asymmetric twin that kills it on rails and holds its own outside the park too.

The Headspace's weird science starts with the asymmetric sidecut, which features a deeper heelside sidecut to compensate for your naturally weaker heelside turns. This makes initiating heelside carves and holding and edge much easier and more natural-feeling. Continuing with the asymmetrical theme, the Headspace's core features a mix of different woods that gives it a softer flex on the heel side for easier turn initiation and quicker response.

Lib Tech Burtners Box - 2016

Lib Tech Burtners Box

Jesse Burtner does a lot of things on his snowboard that most people would never even think of, let alone believe was possible. That's why he needs a board that's versatile enough to handle all of his unpredictable journeys and wild ideas. The Lib Tech Burtner's Box Scratcher BTX Snowboard is a freestyle jibbing machine with a soft enough flex to fulfill all your jibbing and buttering desires, yet it's still responsive enough to shred all over the mountain and boost off of booters.

Slash Happy Place - 2016

Slash Happy Place 2016

It's hard to be in a bad mood when you're lapping the park with the poppy, yet playful feel of the Slash Happy Place Snowboard under your feet. The twin shape, hybrid profile, and versatile flex will have you crushing everything from rails and jumps to groomers and pow stashes.

The CamRock profile features camber between the bindings for pop and power, small flat sections underfoot for stability, and rocker at the tips for a forgiving, catch-free feel. Alternating poplar and beech stringers in the Snap Crackle Pop core provide strength and a lively feel, and spruce inlays in the nose and tail increase pop and response. Triax fiberglass keeps the board's torsional flex consistent throughout for a even response and predictable turns. It's reinforced with Sweet Spot carbon fiber stringers running from the tips to the binding inserts to increase pop without adding weight or stiffness.

Capita UltraFear - 2016

Capita UltraFear 2016

Strike terror into the hearts of every feature inside or outside of the park with the Capita UltraFear FK Snowboard. Designed for freestyle shredding anywhere on the mountain, this board is a team favorite thanks to a versatile flex and profile that makes it scary-good for riding everything from urban kink rails to secret powder stashes.

The Freestyle FK profile is mostly flat to give it a stable feel, with rocker at the tips for catch-free forgiveness that lets you get loose from the ski slopes to the streets. This board has a smooth medium flex that's easy to press but still offers enough response to rip outside of the park lanes. DynaWeave fiberglass features a resin application borrowed from the marine industry that yields much stronger and more rigid qualities, allowing Capita to decrease the thickness of the wood core and shave weight. Kevlar and Titanal alloy strips running down the board increase strength so your board doesn't snap even on the coldest street sessions.

Lib Tech T Rice Gold Member XC2

Lib Tech T Rice Gold Member 2016

WE LOVE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD. Travis Rice relentlessly pushes the envelope both in the mountains and with his boards (probably a correlation there), which has resulted in the development of the Firepower Construction found in the Lib Tech T.Rice Firepower Gold Member XC2 BTX Snowboard. With an ultralight tip, tail, and mid-section, this shred stick still retains the stability and power necessary for committing to some of the world's gnarliest lines.
