Shred Cred Awards: Best Snowboards for 2015

Board Insiders Announces the Best Snowboards for 2015 

Board Insiders. Real Riders, Real Reviews.

SEATTLE—Sept 25th, 2014 —Board Insiders ( today announced the winners of the annual Shred Cred Awards. Returning to Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood, Oregon, Board Insiders demo team tested over a hundred snowboards available for the 2014-2015 snowboard season. The full list of award winners can be found below.

Rossignol XV and Slash Johnnie Paxson Receive 99 Shred Cred

Every snowboard tested receives a Shred Cred score from one to 100 based on performance. The difference between the Shred Cred testing and other tests is that our demo team rides each snowboard for as long as it takes to get to know the snowboard. On average, a rider will devote an entire day, not just a couple runs, to testing one snowboard. We also produce a video for each board tested. This keeps the process transparent. Only snowboards scoring 90 or above are eligible for Shred Cred Awards. The demo team is comprised of real, everyday snowboarders who vary in type of riding and ability. Look for Shred Cred Award stickers identifying the 2015 Shred Cred Award winners at local retailers and online later this year.
