Brazen 90's test

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Was able to test some Brazen 90's this week. Used Bomber non-release bindings. Snow I ran on was crud and mash potato's - boards performed very well. Was able to do some fakie riding too - they ride great backwards.


The Brazen 90's are modeled after the old Line 5-0 90 cm boards. Waist cut and overall design is an exact copy of the Line 90 cm boards. Although the Brazen 90's are just a few mm wider with a slight amount more flex. (Flex is just my estimate, ask Brazen for the details. ) Brazen hand makes their boards and use a 4 x 4 center mount.


Quality of boards is good, edges are sharp as hell...very impressed with their sharpness. Bases are ground flat and take hot wax well. If you order the boards, don't forget to de-tune the fronts and backs right up to the effective edge so they don't catch. I ordered 8 pair of 90's in plain color top sheets. I'm retiring my old Line 5-0's and switching over to Brazen 90's for my standard skiboard. (Although I ride Brazen's 56's if the snow is nice groomed stuff.)


Brazen will put custom graphics on the boards if you want. I'm not into graphics, so happy with solid color. They may be making some 98-99cm boards down the road.

Why are these things popular? I don't get it...bc it is similar to skateboarding?

They are not skateboards. They are twin tip, center mount, symetrical mini skis.


Burton made a snowskate that was a hydrofoil skateboard type of thing. Hard to ride, but fun. I sold mine. They are for hard core skatebaorders only.


Now if you ride a lot in deep powder, do racing, hucks and huge gap jumps, then you need long skis. I sold all my long planks years ago except the XC stuff and went over to skiboards. Skiboards are as fun as you can get on the snow. No poles, no long planks to struggle with carrying...just freedom on the slopes. I love my 56's! (on the groomed stuff.)
