Arbor Shreddy Kruger 2016-2015 Snowboard Review

Arbor Shreddy Kruger 2016 - 2015 Review by The Good Ride

The Arbor Shreddy Kruger is all about Powder and sadly we didn’t get to ride this in powder. The season we got a hold of this was pretty shitty.  We had just plain old soft groomers which is a shame.  Just from riding in groomers you could tell with that directional set back continuous rocker that it’s all about float in deep powder and nothing really else.

Size: 156
Days: 1
Conditions: Mostly soft Sierra Snow with some varied conditions
Riders: James, Mike,
Boots:  Burton Imperial
Bindings: Burton Stay Calm
Set Up:  Set back something about 23″ wide 15 front 0 back

There are many powder boards that can hang on groomers when it’s not dumping but based on our groomer experience it’s more of a pure powder board.

Approximate Weight:  Feels normal

On Snow Feel:   Kind of loose and playful.

Turn Initiation:  Easy and quick edge to edge that seems like it would be easy darting in and out of a tight tree line.

Flex:  Felt medium to med/stiff

Edge Hold:  The grip tech system that has a bump at each binding insert that gives you a good hold on harder snow you might find on the way to a powder stash.

Powder:   This is really what the Arbor Shreddy Kruger is really all about.  It’s one of the only Arbor boards that have grip tech and a set back.

Carving: Pretty loose and washy. It’s not a board that’s really made for carving up groomers.

Speed:  It’s no A-Frame of Steep Water but it’s got enough dampness to handle any speed in powder.

Uneven Terrain:   Easy over bumps and quick to get through destroyed bumpy powder to get to the fresh stuff.

Switch:   nope

Jumps:   Nice pop from between the feet.

Jibbing:   I would rather not

Pipe:   Same goes for jibbing.

Bottom line is I want to spend more time with this board and get it on a few powder days to really see how it compares to many of our favorite powder boards. I have a feeling it will fare well.
