The Equalizer by Jess Kimura

WOMEN’S / BLENDED RADIAL / DIRECTIONAL / 0.5" SET BACK

Tech Story

Inspired by Jess Kimura's progression from the streets to the backcountry, The Equalizer was born to level the playing field on the mountain and offer riders a high-end all-mountain option designed specifically for women. These boards feature a custom-designed hybrid camber profile, which allows for incredible control—making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions.
The signature ride and response have been created by implementing a P2 Superlight Core™ to achieve a desirable flex for all-mountain terrain, while Technora™ + Flax Boosters have been retained in the construction to provide longitudinal power. Also featuring a Quantum Drive™ high-speed sintered base, The Equalizer is one of the most technically advanced women's freeride boards available.

Camber: ALPINE V1 PROFILE

The ALPINE V1 Profile design features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider’s performance in deep snow. The camber runs longer in the tail—providing extra power for the ascent or for larger riders drawn to a dedicated wide series.

This board kicks ******* ***

So I have been in the market for a new snowboard for two months trying to find the perfect one. ITS STRESSFUL. This board is definitely made for an advanced rider and if you’re not confident, then I don’t think all the specs would work in favor for you. If you’re confident w your carves and like going fast, this board will hold onto anything until you let go. I eurocarved without even trying to eurocarve yesterday ****. I got in a little bit of powder yesterday and this boards nose just wants to float on anything that it can. I took her through the park, and the pop was chef’s kiss, and going through the chop? it holds on and just soars through. It took a few runs to get used to the narrowness and nimbleness of the board, but once that confidence gets there... you will soar through anything. I didn’t really define myself as a charger, but this board just wants to ******* haul *** down a mountain and now all I want to do is just keep hitting the steeps on repeat. She can be a little sluggish and squirly when going slow, but it’s easy to get a grasp of once you get the hang and realize it’s you riding the board, the board isn’t riding you. I’d recommend this board for any lady looking to improve her skills ANYWHERE on the mountain. This stick kills. Thanks Jess, Capita, and the donut shoppe for brining this board into my season. I can’t wait to see how much I improve.

Badass Board for Badasses

I tried this board out at the end of the 18-19 season and I can’t stop thinking about it. This thing RIPS!! It truly is a board for the lady that wants to ride everything on the mountain. The first time I rode this board, it was a ******, flat-light, hard snow day at Copper Mountain but this board CRUSHED it and I couldn’t stop smiling. I went SO fast on this thing, I was surprised. It went from the smooth groomers to the hard, choppy stuff without skipping a beat and never felt sketchy. I rode another day at Loveland and it was definitely variable conditions; some slush, some creamy leftover May powder higher up, and some hard snow in spots. I had so much freaking fun launching this thing off the natural features and it rode SO nice in the cream and everywhere else. This is my favorite all-mountain board for sure. I am 5’2, 120lbs, and I rode the 150. I plan to get the 146. I am SO excited for this upcoming season on this badass board!

THE "DO IT ALL"

Well, of course this board is a do it all kind of women's board because the Queen herself has her thumbprint on it. This board really is insanely versatile, it rides with strength on groomers, is playful enough in the park and totally rips in pow. I have been enjoying this board for its all-mountain/ pow qualities mostly, but I definitely do not hesitate to run it through the park. I think most women should keep this board in their quiver as a go to on any given day!
