2017 Endeavor Clout Snowboard Review

Board: Endeavor Clout

Size: 156

Camber Option: 3D Camber with Raised Contacts. Traditional camber with the contact points beveled on the base. 

Bindings: K2 Indy 

Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10 

My Weight: 177lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: 10 inches of fresh snow over the last 24 hour period, sunny skies with some clouds, colder temps, and no wind. 

Flex: This board is just a hair past a middle of the road flex. There’s a sweet spot in the tips that has an abundance of flex, it stiffens up back through the insert area to the middle where that softens up as well. There’s a medium bit of torsional flex as well. Overall it’s an all mountain flex that feels like you’ve ridden it a hundred times making it smooth and consistent. 

Stability: The variable terrain and snowpack made it great for testing out its stability. Riding through chunder, blown out wind lips, and moguls I can safely say this board sucked it all up and pressed on. Rarely did I feel any chatter happening throughout the deck and when I did it was usually in the tips and only on firm to icy groomers. 

Ollies: This board has some serious snap in it. Load up the camber and prepare yourself to ollie over anything in your path. Sidehits and rollers became mini jumps to snap off of. The one thing I will say is that if you don’t load up the camber you’re not getting pop, so it is a board you need to be on top of when riding. 

Pop On Jumps: This board is at home hitting jumps. It has the power and finesse you want when coming into a lip to boost off it. Just bring your A game.
