2017 Endeavor KTV Snowboard Review

Board: Endeavor KTV

Size: 152

Camber Option: Flat Camber with Raised Contacts. A flat to rocker profile. 

Bindings: K2 Indy 

Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10 

My Weight: 177lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, no wind, brisk but warm temps, and perfect hero snow. 

Flex: This board is every so slightly past a middle of the road flex. There’s just a bit more give in the tips than under foot and through the middle. The torsional give is there but not highly abundant. 

Stability: For being so small this board was actually relatively stable. It absorbed chatter and the deep ruts in the snow with ease. On edge it never wanted to wash out. 

Ollies: The snap out of this deck was superb. It loaded up relatively easily and when it popped you would boost. Hitting side hits, rollers, and natural features you could count on this board to get it done. 

Pop On Jumps: Sending a jump was easy with this board. It set up perfectly and just went for it without faltering. 

Butterability: The tips do take a bit more effort to press into, but once you find the sweet spot you’re golden. It would lock in and do what you needed it to do.
