Gilson Glacier 2020 Review by The Good Ride

The Gilson Glacier is a very interesting take on snowboarding with the 3D base you get a soft edge under the board and your normal hard edge too. This makes for a very loose kind of hover board type ride on hard pack unless you engage your edge by tipping the board up a little more than normal and when you engage it, it carves like crazy. The Gilson Glacier is a pretty damp ride, the board runs a little heavier than normal because of the extra base material.

If you’re looking for a new take on snowboarding this could be a cool all mountain board to check out.
