In this video I give a quick overview of snowboard flex, breaking down some of the main benefits you will find in the various levels of flex. I break flex down into 5 levels: soft, softer side of medium, medium, stiffer side of medium and stiff. I think these categories still make sense on a scale from 1-10 where each category could have 2 different levels. Other factors such as the snowboards camber profile can make a difference in how a snowboard flexes and feels, but I didn’t want to get too detailed in this video, just a quick overview. I hope it helps you out, thanks for watching!

Hey TJ I hope your shoulder is better, can’t wait to see more of your videos. What do you think about Nitro Team Exposure 2017 model and Nitro Team bindings, for a beginner-intermediate looking for carving on groomers and occasionally powder?

Derek Plonker says:

Two questions. Where would you place the Capita Supermacho flex-wise, and what flex would be suitable for powder and big jumps?

PhaseSkater says:

Dang I just got a burton ripcord that’s a 2 out of 10 on the softness scale. Super flexible. 158w but I mostly ride all mountain and like to go fast ;(

Murray Hoyland says:

TJ, any chance you can get your hands on a Rome Ravine to review? Looks like a rad all mountain directional, interesting sidecut and uprise contacts on the leading edges. Just wondering what you think?

Gabriel Chan says:

TJ, let’s do a review on LibTech Orca. Cheers.

MiniTrash Creations says:

What’s a good flex for deep pow?

Stasiu Bartmiński says:

What about ride twinpig? What flex it is for you?

Joshua Schaffer says:

I have never ridden anything softer than the funslinger. My old boards were monstrously stiff. I was free ride focused for a long time.

Ágúst Ægisson says:

What board is that in the thumbnail@boardarchive

Fabi says:

nice video! I bought the DOA for this season but I still have my old (5 years) boots which are very soft. Do you think it would be better in general to have stiffer boots for stiff and medium boards?

boru1993 says:

What do you think about DC PLY ?

What are the name of the tan snowboard pants you wear
