How slow is a wide snowboard

with No Comments

When talking about wide snowboards, people will often mention that wide boards are so slow from edge to edge. And as well it may be true that they are slower than slimmer boards I think often people worry to much about that. So in this video you can see how slow or fast a quiet wide board( Palmer Timeless 167W 270mm Waist Width) actually is.

And the reason why that is so interessting to me is, that I actually want an even wider boad, as I still get toe and heel drag in real low turns. On the regular market for snowboards you barely can find any wideboard over 270mm Waist Width  and if you have feet bigger than size 10 or 11 and you really like to carve while beeing in a non alpine postion you will have problems with that width.
