Shinn Slicer Board test review – 138

A firm, direct and reliable ride with very few limits on freeride performance. Splitting the board also couldn’t be simpler or less fiddly.

FULL REVIEW EXTRACT – CARE AND FUNCTION:

Unless your travel destination is a very high wind location like Cape Town, then having good light wind performance along with a manageable top end performance is probably the ideal scenario for maximising your holiday sessions. The upside for travelling is that the Slicer splits in two. The downside is that it is a little bit heavy by today’s carbon freeride twin-tips standards, but it’s perfectly acceptable. Splitting the board apart is really easy and there’s no awkward jamming up of the parts either. We left the board in one piece for most of the winter and it then split apart with ease. It’s not like a foil that seizes up if you leave it screwed tight for too long. In fact the Slicer doesn’t need any tools to split apart. Another bonus.
