A SOFTY WITH GUTS
This true twin spins like a top with incredible control, but thanks to its predictable flex and soft feel, it’s an extremely forgiving board—and a great choice for intermediates looking to take it to the next level. It won’t let you down: Testers were surprised by the Quantum’s stability and lack of chatter when they hit the gas. Credit the four-way layered laminate (most boards only make it to three) and a wood core with a high strength-to-weight ratio for its confidence-inspiring feel on hard snow. For the money, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a board that performs this well all over the mountain. 152, 156, 158; flow.com
