Top 10 Aggressive Camber Snowboards

 

 

It can be pretty tough to find a stiff and agressive snowboard now, with the majority of snowboards being mid flexing hybrid camber boards. They can be a pain to find in real snowboard stores, as they are getting to the point where they are a bit too much for the average customer.

In general, these boards are going to have many of the same features:

Regular camber – or a hybrid camber that is very similar to regular camber. For anyone who learnt to snowboard when there was only camber boards around, there is just nothing like the feeling of a regular camber board. They are strong, very stable at high speeds and have tons of pop.

Stiff flex – a combination of the regular camber profile, strong cores, Triax or Quad (3 or 4 layers) of fiberglass all combine to give the boards a stiff flex.

Sintered Base – the fastest bases, more common on higher end boards, and exactly the base you would want if you are going for a fast regular camber board.
