Features from Soul Stick
With a drawn out nose for riding powder, and a cut out tail, the Scrambler has 5mm of camber with early rocker in the tail(starting before the contact point).
I’ve always been a fan of short-wide volume shifted snowboards, but most of those boards are reserved for chasing powder. So, Soul Stick perked my interest on how I could get a fun shape to work everywhere on the mountain from powder to groomers to park laps. The scrambler is a 150 cm ripper with a very fun shape, it’s lightweight and solid construction set it apart from other boards I’ve tried in this category.
The waist width of 25.4 cm work great for my 9-9.5 size boots and you have a good variety of stance options to choose from. I chose to ride the Scrambler with my normal stance width, and absolutely love it.
I tried this board all over the mountain with some moguls, high speed runs, groomers and park laps. I was pleasantly surprised with how nimble and easy it was to maneuver. I felt effortless power while carving around the scrambler is really playful and it won’t tire you out at the end of the day.
Soul Stick says you’ll get an “organic” feeling while carving on their boards, and riding the mountain. I have to agree, when I say it’s effortless when carving on most conditions, it really is unique. By design this board really feels like it’s an extension of your body and you can get in complete flow with your turn initiation, and you’ll very quickly be able focus on that feeling of surfing the mountain.
Don’t be afraid to go fast on the Scrambler, I was able to get the Scrambler up to about 50mph and it felt very stable. With a shorter tail, which will rule in powder, you’ll have to be aware of your balance when you get up on your back foot, it’s super fun to try little tail presses on this board.
You’ll turn heads when you take the scrambler into the park, and yes it will do well in the park on jumps and rails, it may take a bit to get used to the big nose but you can ollie and pop on to anything with this board, it’s a fun one to rip around in the park as well.
If you’re looking for a board that does everything well with a fun shape that will bring a new feeling to your riding style give the Scrambler a try. It’s an all mountain ripper and a board that provides effortless carving and makes you look at riding the mountain differently, you’ll have a grin on your face all day.
