Season Aero 2022 - 2021 Review by The Good Ride

Looking for a fun, aggressive, all mountain / freeride board? Something that can float in powder, carve, and ride switch too? The Aero from Season fits all those categories.

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 rider’s perspective.

Sizing: 145, 147, 154, 157, 160

The Aero seemed to fit my specs in a 145. It has a little wider waist width than I normally ride, but that kept it super stable and fun to carve as well.

Flex/Buttering: The Aero comes with a stiffer flex, maybe somewhere around the high end of medium bordering on stiff. But it didn’t feel like a super stiff aggressive board. I was still able to butter it on the nose, as well as bend the board in turns and get some good energy back from it.

On Snow Feel: The positive camber between the feet keep it feeling attached to the snow. It stays stable when riding flat based, and likes carve turns as well as skidded turns.

Edge Hold: It can hold an edge on hard snow and even in icy conditions. It won’t be as grippy as a board with some sidecut disruption, but it did pretty well in the icy conditions I experienced.

Turn Initiation/Turning Experience: I felt that the Aero was medium/fast to turn in softer snow conditions. I really enjoyed turning it on some nice groomers, as well as in some powder situations. When I rode it in the crappy icy snow we had, it was medium fast to turn. This is where I could tell I was riding a slightly wider board than I normally do. But it was still manageable and not too bad.

The Aero was super fun to carve for me. I found it responsive but also very stable. I was able to get super low when carving without thinking too much about it. It may have a stiffer flex, but I was still able to bend the board while carving and get some energy back from it to spring into the next turn. Sometimes with stiffer boards, I’m not able to do that because of my weight. But the Aero was a lot of fun to carve.

Speed: This board comes with a sintered base, a nice stable flex, and the ability to ride fast. I found it very enjoyable to ride at higher speeds, but it was also responsive at slower speeds.

Off Piste/Trees: I found the Aero to be responsive and fun to turn through bumps as well as trees and choppy snow. It was fast enough that I could turn through tight spots, but also stable enough to send it over some thunder without getting unstable.

Powder: The Aero is directional, and tapered and has rocker in the nose and tail. As well as a directionally shaped nose and tail. Out of the 3 Season board I tried, the Aero has the least amount of float in powder. But it still has some good features for floating if you are comparing it to your average “all mountain” board. Because the personality of the Aero seemed more all mountain to me, I feel like it floats very well for being in that category. It fits in that “One Board Quiver” category.

Switch: I really didn’t expect the Aero to ride switch that well. It felt very close to riding a twin board when I rode switch. This adds to the versatility of the Aero, and it opens up options for some fun riding and spins where you can take off or land switch and not worry too much about it.

Jumps: I enjoyed the Aero on natural hits and little side transition features. It is fun on jumps as well. There is good energy in this board, and it also is stable for deep or flat-ish landings you might find on some natural drops.

Jibs: If you are an aggressive rider and like a stiffer board on jibs, then the Aero could defiantly handle some rails. It is a bit stiff for my liking as far as boxes and rails go though.

Pipe: I didn’t have the change to take this through the pipe, but I think it could be a lot of fun. It has a nice stable feel, good edge hold and nice pop.

Overall: The Aero from Season is an aggressive all mountain board that comes with a fun freeride flare. It is directional and tapered, but you can also ride it switch. It rides great all over the mountain and has decent float in powder. It is slightly wider than the average women’s board. So if you have a bigger boot, or just like the stability that comes from a wider waist width, the Aero could work for that.
