Forum Contract Used and Reviewed

Sex sells, no seriously it does and who wouldn’t want a board that says sex? OK if that’s not your cup of tea then you could have drugs, rock, and even roll. Now the beautiful thing about this board is it’s kind of on the cheaper side, it’s got a graphic that draws attention, and it’s camber for all those old retirees out there that still use that dated technology. So here’s the wrap up of how this board went down like Paris Hilton in a personal sex tape.

Board: Forum Contract

Size: 152

Camber Option: Traditional Camber

Bindings: Forum Republiks

Stance: 22.5

Angles: 18 negative 15 goofy

Boots: K2 T1 DB size 10

My Weight: 165

Resort: Breckenridge

Conditions: Overcast, cloudy, and some wind in Brecks parks.

Preconceived Notions: Supposedly a cheap throw away park stick so should be pretty soft.

Flex: Even slightly stiffer than mid park flex.

Stability: Pretty damn damp for a Forum and charged over crappy snow with no problems.

Ollies/Pop: Pop was average and got the job done.

Butterability: The stiffer flex forced me to over exaggerate body movements to manipulate the sweet spot and get it to press.

Cruising: Good edge to edge initiation and a deep enough sidecut to let you really rail a turn.

Jibbing: Just like buttering you had to put more effort into pressing it on rails and boxes.

Rider in Mind: The park guy on a budget that wants a deck that isn’t as limp as Ron Jeremy’s dick.

Personal Thoughts: Stiffer than I expected a deck like this to be that’s for sure. The sidecut was nice as it allowed me to really rail a turn and drive the deck through carves with ease. For a cambered deck there’s definitely better options in terms of pop and that was something that didn’t stand out all to much as a great attribute.

What They Say: We the people… We invite you to apply for our street team and join us on the best urban board made. Durable, fast on the drop in, maneuverable, and poppy—every feature is tuned to the team’s needs. Pop Camber not only gives you superior ollie power but it also lets you lock in presses with control like never before. The 0-to-60 base proves that drop-ins don’t need to be long, and the Bad Ass materials package stands up to metal, stairs, and cement. Sign up if you’re ready for a life on the streets.

Causes controversy!

    sounds like an average shopper.

    Given your weight of 165, why did you choose to ride a 152 vs. 146?

  6. Why would I ride a 146? That would just be way too tiny for my weight.
