Flow 2010-2011

01 Apr, 2010


Since 1996, Flow has been in the game of snowboarding with boards for a range of snowboarders.  In 10-11 they continue to offer their sick lineup to riders wanting boards for powder, park, pipe, freeriding or just learning how to ride.

For 10-11 Flow offers a variety of board options depending on your riding style.  Their camber pop cam focuses on 3-areas to rock out with camber, under the feet is traditional camber with flat between the bindings for added grip on ice, better float in pow and to lock onto rails while the tips are mellow for a more forgiving ride.  Their Reverse Camber Pow-Rock utilizes two cambered areas and a long mellow reverse camber from binding to binding to maximize your surface area and float in the deep stuff.  The Reverse Camber I-rock is reverse camber and a convex base between your feet for mellow carving with no edge catching, combined with camber in the binding area that goes flat just before the nose and tail.  Finally their Reverse Camber EZ-Rock is perfect for the rail yard or entry level rider who wants stability surfy feel without feeling off balance with a reverse camber and mellow convex base it reduces catching an edge.  Mixed with mellow camber under the feet to a flat shape up near the nose and tail for added stability and pop.

    heya,
    maybe you know which Flow female rocker is the best for jibbing (soft enought), cause I may have an opportunity to get it cheap next year? I have a Capita Saturnia for jumping big kickers, but it’s not the best press and rail board there is and a bit wide. And I’ve tried Capita FK fantasy but it was too soft and wibly for me even in a small jib park and too unstable even though I had a bunch of fun doing flat tricks and playing around. So I got really confused and I want something inbetween which I could use on big kickers or at least going at big speeds into jib features and play around with, but a bit more advanced at the same time, cause Fantasy is just too forgiving and unstable at the same time.

    Been riding the 06/07 Quantum since… well, the winter of 06/07. Nothing like it. I’ll never forget the first few turns i took, with its brass edges gleaming in the Midwestern sunlight. The love between me and that board can not be described, over the years I’ve grown apart of it, but sadly my dumb ass took it for some tree riding this past spring so now its ruined. Looking forward to deciding whether this seasons Quantum or Team is right for me. Let me know what y’all think. Thanks.

    The rocker is based off the I-Rock, so rocker between the feet & camber to the tip, flattens out just a tad before the tips. I-Rock is typically around 5-6mm of rocker, EZ-Rock is flatter so around 3-4mm with a little less camber to the tips. Pow-Rock is basically a shifted back version of the I-Rock. EZ-Rock is new, but the rocker/camber was around last year as well. Ian Thorley rode it all winter, did great in the dew tour.

    hi, can you tell me please if the pop-cam as seen on myriad is hybrid camber (camber-rocker)..if not, can you tell me what does pop-cam mean? thanks

    Jess,

    The description of the pop cam is at the top of the post. Their camber pop cam focuses on 3-areas to rock out with camber, under the feet is traditional camber with flat between the bindings for added grip on ice, better float in pow and to lock onto rails while the tips are mellow for a more forgiving ride.
