Weston Logger 2020 Review by The Good Ride
The Weston Logger is a pretty soft and playful park to jib ride that offers up a pretty good base and a stable feel underfoot for the length.
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.
How This Review Happened: We borrowed this for an extended demo and returned it.
Conditions: Some messy wet snow, some ok groomers and some more messy wet snow.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs), Nick (Size 10, 160lbs, 5’8”)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV, Thirty Two Joe Sexton
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles
Bindings: Union Strata,Union Superpro,
Set-Up: 22” Wide. 15 front -15 back. Centered.
Approximate Weight: Feels pretty normal.
Sizing: The 152 would have been the call for the park for nick and better for me but the 155 was a little better for riding the mountain and fit my weight better.
Flex/Buttering: The Weston Logger has a medium soft to soft flex that is easy to butter but not super easy to where you butter onto your ass the first time you try. There is good pop out of the tip/tail as well.
On Snow Feel/Ability Level/Skidded Turns: The long flat camber profile of the Weston Logger with just a touch of early rise makes for a very stable ride that tracks well without feeling catchy. it has a wide feeling platform underoot that is all about easy approaches to features in the park but that translates to a decent cruiser too.
Edge Hold: There is really competent grip and it seems like it has a similar disruption to the sidecut that the Ranger has (called “Double Edge”) so it grips hard snow pretty well.
Turn Initiation: Feels mediumish but it is predictable and easy to turn.
Turning Experience/Carving: Not really a board you get for carving groomers but it isn’t bad for what it is.
Powder: Doesn’t feel like the kind of board, even for a twin, that you would want in powder.
Speed: The base has good glide for a park ride and for the flex and pop it still has ok dampening at moderate speeds.
Uneven Terrain: The slower turn initiation wasn’t ideal for weaving through bumps but it isn’t bad going over micro bumps and sloppy slow as long as you aren’t charging though it.
Switch: Great each way like all twins are.
Getting Air/Park: So when it comes to creating your own air it pops well on a ollie but even better it tracks so well into approaching a small to medium kicker just like it does with jibs. The Weston Logger is a pretty solid park ride that leans a bit towards the jib side but doesn’t feel like it’s totally a jib board. Nick really liked how it locked in on a jib and even though it was a little big for him he was getting used to it almost the first lap through the park. There is grip with the pipe
So if you want a park ride first and foremost the Weston Logger isn’t a bad call.
