Looking for the softest snowboard you’ll ever ride?
Over the last 7 years, one of the most asked questions we get is, “what’s a good super soft snowboard for ground tricks like buttering?”
Well we’ve talked about it, argued about it, drank some beer and decided that these boards top the list of Super Soft Boards.
If your favorite buttery board didn’t make the list, that doesn’t mean it’s not a soft board. Tell us about it in the comments. Keep in mind that we get the majority of our test boards straight out of the wrapper, so you may have had a chance to break yours in. Our picks are based off snowboards we have tested, ridden at demos, and owned. We wanted to share the boards that are soft with little to no break in period. In honor of our 7 seasons of Board Insiders, here’s our top 7.
7. Rome Butterknife Snowboard
We found the Rome Butterknife snowboard to hold up to its namesake. With its Skatecore (thinner wood between the feet) and No Hang Ups rocker profile, the Rome Butterknife snowboard was one of the easiest to do infinity butter spins.
6. Bataleon Airobic Snowboard
TBT stands for Triple Base Technology which makes the base have spoon edges. Bataleon wasn’t the first to do this, but it is arguably the best known for it. Recently we’ve seen a ton of other companies jump into the lifted contact point game, lending credit to the concept. While all Bataleon snowboards are positive camber that doesn’t matter that much when it comes to the softness of the Bataleon Airobic. Note: This is not the softest Bataleon on the list, but it’s plenty soft.
