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 were 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.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
How This Review Happened: We borrowed this for an extended demo and then returned it. We had a couple of laps at a frantic manic demo day so take it with a grain of salt.
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.
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.
