DC HR 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The DC HR is a somewhat fat, somewhat short, super tapered (30mm) camber to flat board that has a pretty heavy back foot on the tail/surfy ride to it.  It is soft, light and playful for a board of this type and as long as edge hold isn’t important this could be a fun board from everything from carving/slashing around groomers to having a very competent powder board.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

Size: 155
Days:  1
Conditions:  Pretty bad Utah conditions with lots of hard snow.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs), Jimbo (Size 11, 5’11” 160lbs), Tim and Peter (Size 8, 5’11” 185lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADVBurton Almighty
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles,  Footprint Insole Technology Gameghangers Low Profile
Bindings:  Burton Genesis,
Set Up
: 22.5” Near Reference stance 18 front -6 back

Here is a look at the camber profile from the bench. You can see there wasn’t much flat near the nose and not much early rise but there seems to be a decent set back on board, massive taper in the tail and a somewhat long big nose with lots of volume. You could really feel this camber on snow and as long as there was a lot more weight on the back foot it turned really well.  It seems like a board you don’t have to put away after the powder is gone if you have a very directional surfy style of riding.
