APO Supreme 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The APO Supreme is an interesting board.  To start off I think someone filed down the edges because we have never experienced so little edge hold. It was to the point where it was a bit scary. Hopefully this was not how the board really rides because there is some snap and pop to it.

Size: 160
Days: 1
Conditions: Some patches with loose snow and some hard snowment patches as well.
Riders: James, Peter
Boots: Burton IonNike Kaiju
Bindings: Union Factory
Set Up: Centered about 23″ wide 15 front -15 back

On Snow Feel:  Felt stable between the feet and felt lively under foot but it was hard to get over the complete lack of edge hold.

Powder: No Powder but it seems like it will plane well.

Turn Initiation and Carving:  Didn’t even try to carve. Just tried to survive till we got to the bottom of the run. Even simple edge to edge transitioning was difficult because of the lack of edge hold.  It was pretty much a slide to the bottom of the hill while thinking about what we were going to ride next.

Speed: Didn’t really go fast because we wanted to stop in less than 100 yards.

Uneven Terrain:  Seemed like it

Edge Hold: horrible and scary. Someone must of had a long smelly brain fart with the file in hand when they were de-tuning it.  It felt like the edges were round.

Flex: Nice snappy Medium to medium soft flex that was easy to butter but still felt like it could handle some mountain speed.

Switch: Felt the same either way.

Jibbing: Seemed like it could be a good jibber.

Pipe: Didn’t even think about stopping in the pipe.

Jumps: Great snap and it felt really lively.  It’s also pretty stable approaching kickers.

Basically neither Peter and I felt like we want to ride this again with a board right out of the wrapper to see if the edge hold is truly this bad.  Hopefully it isn’t. If the edge hold was middle ground we would of really liked this board.
