For 10 years now Endeavor has been building boards in the great white north to the hype of many Canadians. I was finally able to get them to send me two of their decks and the Color Series was one of them. Here’s how it stacked up.
Board: Endeavor Color
Camber Option: Center reverse camber
Bindings: Raiden Phantoms
Stance: 22.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 UFO Size 10
My Weight: 165
Conditions: Slightly over cast with intermittent sunshine causing a mix of slush to chunder snow.
Flex: Softer in the tips slightly stiffer between the feet. There was also a good amount of torsional give.
Stability: The boards tips get chatter at speed but under foot it’s actually stable.
Ollies: This board had pop which is nice for a jib stick. Loading the tips up it would snap.
Pop On Jumps: It can handle small to medium sized jumps with ease anything more and you might want to look at another board.
Butterability: The softer tips and the reverse camber really allow you to play around.
Jibbing: This board had a big sweet spot that allowed it to lock in for presses. It’s one of those jib boards that has a lot of pop which makes snapping off a features a huge plus.
Carving: You can carve on it but it’s not overly aggressive. Small set up turns are optimal but long hard drawn out carves the board will buckle.
Rider in Mind: Jib kid that wants some snap.
Personal Thoughts: It’s always good to get on a jib board that has some pop and allows you to play around in the whole park. For all mountain use I would want something a bit stiffer.
