Test Results


The Mendiboard Womens Backcountry was a lot of fun for the testers this year. Super maneuverable and very agile, the board rides playfully and with great ease. It has a lively pop and turns are very easy to initiate. It floats very well and can be ridden over both the front and back foot. In the variable conditions, it either goes over or digs in without "biting hard". This has to do with the slightly higher rocker and relatively short nose. Thus, you can ride even in demanding conditions very pleasant and with little energy. On the groomers it carves reliably and even on ice the edge hold is strong enough, provided you apply proper pressure.

After the first few steps skinning there was the comment " With it you feel so free ... it is much lighter than my 107mm wide freeride skis". The testers felt safe every moment, even in steeper terrain and hardpack. Like the men's version, the Mendiboard Backcountry Womens is ascent-optimized, tracks cleanly and is very well balanced. The effective edge is very long on the Mendiboard Backcountry, it has a classic profile with rocker nose. Very little snow sticks to the top sheet. One tester even said she would ride the board all season, even on the slopes.

Description


We had already extensively tested the Mendiboard Backcountry last season. This year, the girls have taken the 150 version under their feet and tested again extensively. It features a traditional camber profile (with about 1cm of camber) for optimal edge hold on the ascent and ideal riding characteristics in a variety of snow conditions. The shape of the nose is chosen extra wide to ensure sufficient lift in powder despite the camber profile. In addition, the bend of the nose provides an extra portion of float.
