New for this year, Roxy Snowboards has developed the Roxy Banana Smoothie EC2BTX snowboard with all mountain expert and Whistler local Robin Van Gyn. When your days off from coaching groms are spent hiking back country lines, you need a board that will power through the various terrain British Columbia has to offer. The Banana Smoothie is a great looking women’s snowboard that will make your day taste like magic.
Taking the Roxy Banana Smoothie EC2BTX out of the bag, the hand painted graphic pulls me in and it cool to see that there are actually sparkles in the top sheet. But not just good looking, this board features the best tech that the banana loving shreds at Mervin have to offer. EC2BTX is a mellower version of the hybrid power banana camber found in the C2BTX. Still responsive when needed, the elliptical camber smooths the pressure along the nose and tail for the feel that Robin wants. Add Magen-Traction to the mix and there is amazing control as the “steak knife” edges cut through the crustiest crust that ever crusted. With a flex of 5 out of 10, the Banana Smoothie is at the stiffer end of the spectrum for the ladies.
Built for the powder hungry, snowmobiling, cliff-dropping, chute bombing female rider, the Banana Smoothie C2BTX is a great choice for the intermediate to advanced rider looking to spend more time in the trees, off of the groomers and outside of the resort.
