The Roxy Ollie Pop is a fun all mountain freestyle board that has great edge hold and is fun just about anywhere on the mountain regular or switch. Like it’s name it has a lively very fun to ollie ride and will make happy a lot of riders who like to take a freestyle approach to the mountain. Like the Gnu B-Pro it can get a little loose between the feet but most don’t mind this.
The 2014 Roxy Ollie Pop is pretty much the same C2 BTX ride as it has been over the years.
The 2013 is almost the same as the 2012. All in all the Ollie Pop is a fun board for anyone who wants a do everything freestyle snowboard.
For 2012 Roxy mainly refined the 2011 version by making a little less loose between the feet but it’s still pretty similar to the 2011 ride.
The Roxy Ollie Pop in 2011 has C2 BTX which we feel is better in almost every situation over the old 2010 BTX snowboard. There is still a fun catch free feel but you can take this out on the mountain and make some decent turns without washing out. There is also an added stability from having a little bend in the tail. It’s not as stable as hybrid camber but it’s getting close.
As with all hybrid rocker boards they are great in almost all conditions except hard pack snow. Because of the centered stance it’s closer to average if you like to set your board back for directional powder riding but good if you like to center the stance and ride switch. The Ollie Pop will hold an edge very very well but it will have a very loose feel that some people hate when one footing and flat basing the board. This is most prevalent when riding in hard pack and almost un-noticable in softer conditions. Most people get use to this but if this isn’t something you feel you would like then hybrid rocker or continuous rocker won’t be your kind of board.
