yo sup guys Kevin here in this video I wanna share with you guys for powder snow boards that are also true twins now if you've ever ridden a traditional powder snowboard usually it has a taper so it has a larger nose and smaller tail and this just helps the tail of the board sink and the nose of the board float through that powder and if you've ever tried to ride a powder board switch it's actually very difficult because it's hard to keep that nose of the board up out of the snow and you're putting a lot of your weight onto your back foot to keep that nose up so with a true twin it's gonna give you that ability to float but also to ride switch and do tricks so these are for boards that claim that they can do it the first one is the Battalion magic carpet the interesting about the magic carpet is that in the nose and tail it has battalions three BT technology three BT is basically if you can imagine the hull of a boat it's gonna drive through the powder snow and guide the snow out the sides also when you're riding from edge to edge is going to be very smooth rocking back and forth because of that hull shape and because that hull shape is in the nose and the tail you can ride it in either direction and you're not gonna feel any difference so that's the first board the Battalion magic carpet the second board is actually the exact opposite it's the yes 2020 so instead of a nose and tail like a hull it has a concave nose and tail so with the yes 2020 you can ride it in either direction and make sense that that concave shape will help you to float but I'm not sure how smooth it's gonna be edge to edge it's almost counterintuitive with the turning motion but definitely a board that I can see floating really well in powder the next two snowboards are also opposite but similar in some ways the first one is the Burton trick pilot and the trick pilot it's a true twin Canberra snowboard but as you get towards the tip and tail there's a flat section followed by a rocker section and I can imagine that this flat two rocker will really help the board to float and powder I don't know if it's gonna be as effective as some of the other snowboards but the idea of the flat two rocker section really makes sense for helping it to float in powder the next board is the lip sack double dip and it has pretty much the opposite camber profile with the rocker in the center of the board with camber under your feet and that rocker right in the center actually helps to lift the rest of the snowboard up out of the snow and I've had the chance to ride a similar board the canoe space case I did find that riding it through powder that rocker and the center really did help it to float so the libtech double dip with that camber profile and the added surface area I can really see it floating well in powder in either direction alright guys so those are four twin powder snowboards each with a unique technology to help it float in powder it'd be great to hear your thoughts in the comments and also if there's any true twin powder snowboards that I missed it'd be great to hear about them in the comments as well I'll put links to all these boards in the description if you want to check them out thank you guys so much for watching have fun there snowboarding and I'll see in the next one soon

    Marhar Lumberjack is missing:

    Since its very inception over 3 years ago now, the Marhar Lumberjack has been, and will continue to be one of the best powder twins there has ever been. It's been proven, & is well-known. Just read and/or watch any of the numerous reviews that are online, it sells out every year for a reason. On that note, it's coming out in a cambered version for the first time this year which should be interesting and there's also the Lumberjill, which is the women's/female version of the Jack. 👍 #JustSpeakingTruth

    I’d love to see some reviews on the powder specific snowboards from arbor like the Clovis and the costa nostra, that would be sick

    Not gonna lie I’m a bit of a snowboard noob and when I was in Canada I was riding strictly powder. (I barely touched a groomer) on a Salomon assassin rental board do you think I would notice a big difference between that board on powder compared to a powder board

    I have taken the betaleon MC and burton skeleton key to Niseko, moiwa and rusutsu in Jan this year. The betaleon floats well in pow and better than the skeleton key. 3bt is so smooth edge to edge and makes riding switch easier everywhere. Love it. For my next rusutsu trip i got the 2020 orca and may be pairing it with the rome katanas.

    The capita spring break twin is rated really well for powder due to its CamRock profile. It’s been updated as the Capita Awsymulator (spell check?) it has a very unique shape as well

    Would you take the Magic Carpet into Hakuba pow? I have been told it's more of an inbound resort pow board and to avoid backcountry pow. I don't know if there is any truth to that.

    Could you not just size up like we did back in the day?

    I own the trick pilot and it’s more of an aggressive all mountain twin than powder board. It does alright in pow but I’d rather be on my cheetah in deep stuff

    Weird question but am I in a disadvantage when using a non flexible board (it's kind hard)?

    Hey Kevin.
    What do you think about the Rome gangplank. My opinion is that it's very easy to ride and really catch free. I bought it attheend of last season. This season I will try the powder runs and I hope that it's doing well. Did you ever had the possibility to ride the gangplank in the past? Best greetings from Germany. Chello✌👌

    Cool vid Kevin! Riding switch in powder is fun. Libtech's C2 profile works really well, especially when it's a bit steeper

    The outline of the 2020 is the exact same as a traditional snowboard. So edge to edge isn't sacrificed. On the other hand edge to edge on the magic carpet has a looser feel.

    How do you like Bataleon? I’ve never ridden one before and I’m looking at the women’s Bataleon Love Powder?
