Donek Snowboards 163 Rev Slalom Race Prototype testing

Donek Snowboards is always developing new boards, and that takes testing to make sure they work right! This is a snapshot of the work and the riding with StoryCatcher’s Everett McEwan, also a pro Nor-am racer and Donek team rider, and Donek CEO and President Sean Martin. In the works for 2015 are some changes to already successful 163 Rev Slalom board. We are testing new sidecut shapes, some tighter some looser, both with and with out taper, as well as de-cambering the boards more in the nose and tail. Although we have not settled on the final design yet we are already seeing improvements in speed that should pay off in a race course. Testing will continue all spring so stay tuned for more… want to be fast next year, get on a Donek!

Original snowboard “is” alpine snowboard! Don’t you remember the incredible queen of riding Karine Ruby was? 😉
