Summary

The Korua Otto Plus is a very light and poppy one board quiver that appeals to riders that are don’t weight much or that mainly ride in good conditions.

Similar Boards (but not the same): Korua Otto ClassicK2 Manifest, Yes Typo, Jones Frontier, Ride Wild Life,

Set-Up: 21.5” Wide. 18 front -9 back. Close to Reference and Set as far back as we could.

Approximate Weight:

Feels very light. (We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)

Sizing

Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these boards. You can of course go bigger or smaller as the companies suggest but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

Korua Otto Plus Camber

 

 

 

 

The Korua Otto Plus is one of 2 non-tapered snowboards in Korua’s line. The other is the Otto. Coming off other Korua boards it feels like a twin but coming off a twin you feel its shape. The camber profile has a little early rise in the tail and a decent amount in the nose that makes it on the border between being semi-locked in and more stable/forgiving. Skiding a turn isn’t out of the question but some boards are for sure easier.

Flex/Pop/Buttering

The Korua Otto Plus is soo lively underfoot and really pops well on an ollie. You can butter it rather well too. The flex feels a touch more soft and a good bit more energetic compared to the Otto Classic. The pop is pretty easy to access too and you don’t have to be as strong a rider as you do with the Otto.

Speed/Uneven Terrain/Dampness

There is such a fast base on the Korua Otto Plus and it is noticeably faster than the Otto Classic. It really picks up speed and keeps its speed well. In perfect conditions the Otto Plus is the faster board but the minute it gets a little bumpy but still fun I would rather be on the Otto Classic.

Edge Hold

Really strong edge hold for not having any disruption in the sidecut. The edge can buck out in uneven snow but in hard smooth snow it is just the same as the regular Otto.

Turn Initiation

Faster than I expected with the Korua Otto Plus and it turns quick for its width.

Turning Experience/Carving

I love the extra spring out of the Turn that the Koura Otto Plus has.

Powder

Really good directional float for a board with a non-tapered shape. When set back as far as your stance will allow you to go it has pretty easy float. It doesn’t have as much set back on board as the Otto Classic I own but it is still more than most All Mountain boards. You can set it back -2.75″ back from center of board with a 22″ stance width and that is not bad at all.

Conclusion

So if you are a lighter rider or ride in good conditions only the Korua Otto Plus is the call because it has so much more pop/spring out of the turn than the Otto Classic and a faster base.
