Roxy Torah Bright 2015 Review by The Good Ride
The Roxy Torah Bright XC2 BTX is in a lot of ways the TRS in a women’s shape which is not a bad thing. It’s a great board for those that like the mountain just as much as they like the park. Sorry about the windy vid.
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.
Conditions: Really good soft but not quite perfect snow with only a few hard patches.
Riders: Ginger and Amber Jean
Boots: Gingers 32 boots from like 10 years ago and Amber Jeans Felix
Bindings: Roxy Team
Set Up: Centered 15 front -15 back
Approximate Weight: Felt normal
On Snow Feel: The extra camber provides a pretty stable platform between the feet for hybrid rocker and it’s easier to one foot and flat base off the chair compared to C2 BTX. It’s a much different ride than the old Ollie Pop that I believe this replaced. It’s all in the XC2 BTX as it’s a shorter rocker and longer camber profile give it a much more stable hybrid rocker feel that a lot will like.
Turn Initiation: Pretty quick and easy for short radius turns. Medium to wide radius turns is fun and springy. It’s one of those boards that’s fun to turn.
Flex: Not super easy to butter like but very doable. It’s got a nice snap out of the tip and tail and the flex feels the very middle ground. Over time it goes to med/soft.
Edge Hold: Great board for those that see hard to icy conditions.
Powder: The XC2 BTX profile gives the Torah a pretty stable ride but at a small price of float compared to the C2 BTX models. It would be nice to have a set back here so there is more directional float. It’s still a good amount better than Camber but it’s not as good as some hybrid rocker and other rocker shapes out there.
Carving: There is much better carving power with the extra camber and you can really lay into a carve well with this new camber profile.
Speed: The base has good glide and the board is pretty stable at high speed. It’s no mountain bomber but it’s got a pretty stable ride for an all mountain freestyle twin.
Uneven Terrain: You can ride this all day to the last crappy run at the end of a crowded Saturday without it getting cranky on you.
Switch: pretty much the same either way. The only thing better is an asymmetrical board.
Jumps: Really good pop for an ollie and really fun in the jump park.
Jibbing: Not really it’s the strongest point but it’s not bad for mid-level jibs.
Pipe: Amazing edge hold and really fun design for pipe riding.
It’s a solid choice for those that want to ride the mountain switch and regular as well as hit the park/pipe. It’s what you might call a mountain twin. We’d love to see a board like this with the same shape and camber profile but just a setback stance so it can act as a better directional powder board as well as a more versatile quiver killer.
