The Backwoods was a Fan favorite from Weston last year. So when we heard they were bringing in a Carbon version, of course we got excited. putting the weight savings to the side, even though 2600 grams is something to drool over, the Control you get with the backwoods carbon is amazing to say the least. Like most Carbon boards on the market, The backwoods version is constructed to take bigger lines and bigger days, while still retaining a slight playfulness. The wide nose and narrow tail allow you to make quick turns when in tighter terrain.
The Backwoods is one of the favorites from Weston. By bringing Carbon into the equation and improving the stiffness as well as weight makes for a supreme board. By simply enhancing the Carbon in their Strike Wood core, a full paulownia wood core with aluminum strings to add strength, the Backwoods carbon is a stiff demanding board. Don't be afraid to ride this board in crud, trees or powder, the directional multi radial camber rocker gives you the edge contact you need to make quick turns in hairy situations but provides glide in open meadows.
With most Carbon boards, we would recommend checking out a hard boot set-up, This will be the biggest weight saving set-up so you can stay out longer and go further with your equipment.
