Season Nexus 2022 - 2021 Review by The Good Ride

Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Soft & Buttery. Excellent Pop. Excellent Base. Good set back on board. Fun & Turny.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Technical and Catchy Camber. Soft flex isn’t ideal for higher speeds or aggressive riders.

Summary

The Season Nexus is a tapered directional shape with a medium-soft flex. It’s catchy but it is a very versatile and super fun all conditions ride.

Set-Up: 21.5” Wide. 18 front -6 back, 21 front -3 back.  Close to Reference and Set all the way back.

Approximate Weight:

The Season Nexus is middle ground weight wise. Maybe a touch on the lighter side. (We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)

Sizing

The 155 Felt really good for my specs. I was about 10lbs too heavy for the recommended weight but man I liked that 155. I think I would like the 158 for my weight but I would miss a little of the control I had.

Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these boards. You can of course go bigger or smaller but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
152: 8-9
155: 9-10
158: 9.5-10.5
159w: 11-12
161: 10-11
162w: 12-13
164: 10.5-11.5

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

The Season Nexus has a touch more taper, more set back on sidecut, setback on board and runs wider in each size. When riding on reference stance it feels a little more directional than the Aero but still has a pretty cool centered mountain freestyle feel to it. As you set it back the turning personality feels more surfy and directional than the Aero.

The Camber profile looks pretty much like full ass traditional camber and you feel that on snow. It is very locked in and unforgiving. Not for beginners, intermediates or anyone who often skids turns.

Flex/Pop/Buttering

The camber profile is unforgiving but man the Season Nexus has a soft buttery but poppy and dynamic flex to it that Nick and I just loved. It is very mellow for this type of shape and quite frankly I thought the Aero would have this flex being more centered and less tapered.

Speed

The Season Nexus is not a big mountain bomber but it has a super fast base that keeps it’s speed with the best of them. It is super easy to repair and look good after.

Uneven Terrain

The Season Nexus makes for a really fun all day resort ride and it can absorb everything from micro bumpy hard chatter to soft wet messy snow. It just isn’t ideal for powering over/through stuff at higher speeds.

Edge Hold

There isn’t anything going on with the sidecut that is visible like some but it does a good job holding an edge in most conditions you want to ride.

Turn Initiation

Pretty quick edge to edge but not so fast it is twitchy. It turned really fast for being as wide as it was and being steered by my size 9ers.

Turning Experience/Carving

So like the Aero, The Season Nexus doesn’t accelerate hard into a turn but to Nick and I, it felt a bit more turny. Both have pretty balanced sidecuts but when you set the Nexus back it gets more turny and starts to give you a bit of that set back surfy more slash friendly personality.

Powder

The Season Nexus isn’t a dedicated pow board by any means but it sure does well for mostly camber when set back. It is -2.25” back at 22” wide and -3.75” back at 22”. In comparison to the Aero on reference at 22” wide you can get -1.5” back on board. Set all the way back at -22” you can get -3” back on board. It feels more directional too and has a longer more pow friendly nose. This 155 Nexus floated better than the 157 Aero by a good bit.

Conclusion

We love the Nexus and other than it being a little unforgiving it would be a fun board to own. This is a great recommendation for those that like mellow flexing camber in a directional shape that can still float rather well in powder. There aren’t many boards like this and it is hard to classify but it sure is fun.
