Snowboard Review: Donek Incline

Killer turns on the Donek Incline.
Board Specs:
Length: 164 cm
Width: 29.5 cm
Radius: 9-11 VSR
Binding angles: 15,-15 (my normal freestyle stance, but that’s probably not ideal for this board).

Yeah, the incline was one of the most amazing things I have ever put under my feet!
I could lay trenches in my softies, charge through crud like it wasn’t there and even stomp some big landings with confidence. But it is not a forgiving board with stock specs. It maneuvers like a fighter jet and if you let it run a bit, you almost feel like you are flying a fighter jet down the mountain. This is not, as you call out, Ryan, a freestyle board by any stretch of the imagination.
I ran with a pretty stiff set-up: Nidecker carbon bindings and a rather stiff boot (not quite as stiff as the Driver X, though).
It is nimble, quick to get on edge and holds on ice better than any other board I have ever riden. And Sean at Donek is a true champion of producing quality snowboards. Cannot say enough about the attention Donek gives to its customers or the quality of work.
I am a bit older now (going on 40) and have not ridden in a while (life and stuff) but once I can get on a board again, I am calling up Donek. Probably going to go with a Phoenix the next time around (just to soften things up a bit), but if I get a big bonus at some point, I will, without hesitation, add a new Incline to my quiver.

Ok, so now I want this board. Looks like a blast, and I get the “bsr”

SiddyDaddy says:

First – welcome to riding like the rest of us mere mortals (noticed the lack of buttering Godlike skills of yours).

Second – I could not agree more on how the Donek buying experience is far far above other board manufacturers.

Did you find the Incline too stiff for you style? How did you find its level of dampening? I have the Flux for increased dampening. Will you do a Flux review? I wanted the hammer head shape for charging plus my club has a gate challenge when we gather (want any edge to help obtain bragging/joking rights).

Will look up you and Donek in February if y’all around Keystone then.

Martin Bailly says:

Hi Ryan, I just purchase that demo board ! Looking forward to carve with this baby ! I’m an ex-alpine carverracer and I kept digging my heel cups in the snow when turning heel side on my Jones 168W. Finally after watching you (I’m a fan ) and discovering that Donek made such wide freeride/soft boots board , I went for it ! Thank for the videos, keep making them !

Fi Lippo says:

Hi man! Donek boards are very hard to get here in Europe… is there any other board you would recommend for your style of riding? I am 183 for 78kg what sizes would you recommend??? Thanks a lot!!

Jordan Fletcher says:

Hey man, what is your boot size?

Johnny-Anthony Khawand says:

Why is the board shaking too much on heel side? because of profile or stiffness or snow quality or length?
