There’s a lot of factors to look at when seeing what board will be the all mountain king. Can it jib, can it jump, can it carve, how about ride through chopped out terrain, and so forth. The 2014 K2 Raygun is one of those snowboards that can do it all and caters to a […]
Adding women’s reviews this year was new to us and we weren’t sure how it was going to go over. It seems like it’s been a smashing success and knowing that there has to be one deck that sticks out we let Zara choose her favorite. It comes as no surprise that the Salomon Gypsy […]

Last year we introduced the Best All Mountain Freeride award which was won by none other than this deck. Seeing as nothing significant has changed with the Rush ABT we decided to give it a Legacy award to show that it’s still a solid ride and people should check it out.
People seemed to be shocked that last year the Rounds won the best jib board award. Why? Because Echelon was a brand new company coming out of nowhere. Well for 2014 nothing noticeable has changed with the board which is why it was only able to achieve a Legacy award this year. Here’s the review.
