The Pioneer makes its debut in the Endeavor line up this season and is already making waves. In designing the Pioneer we went back to the drawing board, choosing a shape, construction and flex that perfectly fit our riding styles and vision for a new board. As a result, the Pioneer has now become the board of choice for most of our team.
Starting at the core we have blended Poplar with Paulownia to reduce weight whilst increasing response. Combine this with our Multi-Camber profile that is cambered between the feet and early rise in the tip and tail and you get explosive power with ease of use. This allows you to push harder and ride faster with the knowledge that the Pioneer will remain predictable and stable. A slightly wider nose and tail shape provides a solid platform for holding presses and a new carbon layup acts as the perfect compliment. 2 Parallel beams run along the board but stop short of the contact points. This gives explosive power underfoot whilst maintaining a softer, more playful nose and tail that won't buck you.
New for 1819 is our redesigned Smoothride Sidewall. This builds upon our original award winning technology and helps reduce our overall impact on the environment. A more efficient manufacturing process cuts waste without sacrificing the impact and vibration absorbing properties, helping to provide the smoothest ride possible. Fibreglass layups are also enhanced through the use of tri-axial glass that includes a pre-cured layer above the core for more response and torsional rigidity without adding weight. And of course it's all finished off with the Channel mounting system for infinite stance adjustment.
Endeavor Pioneer Snowboard
I bought a 2019 pioneer and for whatever reason I just couldn't get along with it. Felt kinda just like a snowboard..... Nothing special. It wasn't overly stiff, but tortionally it felt stiff, thus hard to make quick corrections with feet and ankles only.
Decided to pick up a 2020 because of all the popular reviews out there from angry, goodride, snowboard profiles. MAN WHAT A BOARD.
Feel nible like a surgical knife with so much snap. I LOVE this board!
Looks like they didn't make 155 wide for 2020 but stoked to rip the shit out of it this coming season. Got the Color (now Ranger) 155 wide as well but way softer than this. Strapping in with Burton Malavita, feels solid but will see. Review to be continued.......
Other board in the pic is the Archetype 150cm (yes, smaller based on their weight recommendation) with Burton Genesis X.
So far the only downside I've found is fighting it a bit in the deeper snow. I am not talking powder though as it has not had that test yet due to the late season purchase. Other than that, this is a poppy, fun board that is stable and responsive at speed on groomers at the same time. I'm loving this thing!
