We had to keep looking down to remind ourselves that this is a 152. The Drift blasted through crud that typically slows up similarly sized boards, plus its rubber sidewalls damped chatter. And it’s fast. The Drift kept up with the big boys—some 159s, even a 162. In the park, this perfect twin performs true to size, with a lightweight aspen core that eases spins. salomonsnowboards.com
Bonus: The sidecut is kinked into three straight lines, which helps keep power both under your feet and distributed along the edge for carving.
Bummer: It might feel small underfoot for the biggest guys.
