And the Roxy snowboard is getting the full treatment with all the Magne Traction technology that other boards produced by Mervin are getting. Of course Mervin Manufacturing is doing this because they are owned by Quiksilver a deal made back in the 90s. It doesnt hurt Roxy that their pro riders arent too shabby either. Torah Bright is the premier name you might recognize. Her new Bright Series is just one of the lines that Roxy is expanding into. Alongside Torah are riders Sarah Burke a two times X-Games Gold Medalist and Kjersti Buaas an Olympic snowboarder. These girls have shredded parks and pipes that would have most guys shaking in their snowboarding boots. Whether or not you still doubt if Roxy is legit you cant argue that the girls who ride them certainly are.
A second and even better reason why to buy the lower to mid ranged snowboards is that they are usually softer. By softer they are more flexible. A common theme among all snowboards for beginners is that they are flexible because it is easier to learn how to turn on a softer more flexible board. Entry level snowboards cost from $150-$250 and mid-ranged snowboards cost from $250-$450. If you are shopping at a local snowboard store ask the shop crew to show you the more flexible or softer snowboards. You can test how flexible they are by setting the tail on the ground and grabbing the tip and push it down. If the board starts to flex without putting too much muscle into it than it is considered a soft board.
They are good for doing tricks and are generally softer and shorter for than other boards allowing riders to turn twist and flip easily. There are also freeride boards. These boards are generally longer and sometimes are directional (meaning they are meant primarily to be ridden one direction). They are more stable at high speeds. Lastly there are powder boards which are designed for deep soft snow. They are usually wider and bigger in order to give you the correct float. Snowboard size is critical when purchasing a new board as each style requires a different size depending on your weight and ability. Most boards these days have their own chart which can help to guide you. Be sure to also ask a snowboard sizing expert at the store before making the purchase. There are also many different types of snowboard boots on the market that complement each type of riding style.
Sims boards have cool graphics which tend to be more on the darker and laid back side as well. You wont see too much of the highly funky designs that many other companies are known for. The Sims boards seem to be somewhat tamer in the graphic design aspect of the boards. But the cool pictures dont affect the capabilities of the board. Yes you may want that eye catching board that provides a trendy new one-of-a-kind look; however technical aspects that enable better functionality are more important and desirable in a board than that of a cool or funky graphic. Sims offers all three basic types of boards in a variety of different construction options and flex capabilities. The type of board you choose will determine what construction and flex you will receive. There are charts that are available on various websites that will help you determine the specific qualities of various snowboards such as the flex and the type of finish that it has. The Sims brand really does offer a UV coating protection on the snowboard. Other boards may also do this but Sims advertises this fact and offers it pretty much on every single snowboard that they manufacturer.
