Best All Mountain Snowboards of 2018

  • Who has the time to buy a board for every kind of condition and terrain type, amirite? Just kidding, if possible you should have a board for each type of riding, but some days you want to ride everything, it might start with some park laps and end up in the trees or vice versa. And who has time to switch out rides when the conditions are so good and you just cant stop riding. That's where these boards come in. With one option from this list, the mountain is your oyster. Challenge yourself and see how many kinds of conditions you can see in one day. These are our favorite all mountain snowboards for men of 2018. Now go on, grab a board and get out there!!!!!

  • Lobster Sender

    Lobster has done it again with the Sender. This all mountain option is full camber throughout and features Lobster's patented Freestyle 3BT making it easy to take it from the park to pow and back again with no hangups. With carbon fiber stringers on the tip and tail allowing for tons of pop off jumps and in/out of turns. Also, if you are riding terrain that may be a little icy, slushy or overall not ideal, the sidekick on the tip and tail are another take on serrated edges and keep you locked in on ice or pushing shit snow out of your way. While your boys are pussing out because the lip looks like shit, you can strap into your Lobster Sender, turn them and say "The snow's a little soft but don't be silly, I'm still gonna send it."

  • Nitro Suprateam

    The Suprateam is being brought back to the Nitro line. With a more responsive flex than the Team, the Suprateam comes with a directional twin shape and a progressional width, meaning the width scales with the length of the board. This mid-wide board comes with true camber shape, progressive sidecut and powerlite core and carbon fiber top sheets. This is the perfect board for the guy who wants to ride the whole mountain from park to glades and everything in between.

  • Lib Tech E. Jack Knife

    A favorite of riders like Eric Jackson, the E Jack Knife is a mid-wide, C3 baseline snowboard with an Aspen / Columbia Gold / Poplar wood core blend. As always, LibTech boards come with their signature Magne-traction technology, creating a serrated edge which holds an edge like a dream and in most cases allows you to ride a shorter size without sacrificing stability and confidence through an aggressive or icy turn. Whether you want to ride backcountry, park or groomer runs, the LibTech E Jack Knife is one of our favorites and we are positive it will be one of yours too.

  • GNU Mullair

    If it’s good enough for Nicolas Muller, it’s good enough for you. Another C3 option, the GNU Mullair is an all mountain beast! Take this board from the backcountry to the groomers and hit park laps in between. As part of Mervin Manufacturing, this zero hazardous waste approach to manufacturing comes straight out of the United States of America and comes standard with Magne-traction allowing you to rip hard carves without falling flat on your face.  

  • Bataleon Evil Twin

    The Evil Twin is Bataleon's answer to your all mountain needs. Similar to the Lobster Sender, this board has the 3BT technology, however, this is Twin 3BT which is a little more fine tuned to the rider who wants a twin feel for freestyle or park riding. If you are the kind of guy that finds yourself riding switch as often as you ride normally then it might be time to consider this bad boy. 5/10 flex rating gives you the support you need while letting you get this starting to sound like a bra ad? Throw some matching Switchback Twin bindings on here to complete the set and unleash your inner it...your evil twin...  

  • Jones Ultra Mountain Twin

    The Ultra Mountain Twin is a freestyle shredder “from the future.” With a rocker/camber shape, the Ultra Mountain Twin is great option for the entire mountain for every kind of condition. This board has a similar technology to magne-traction called “Traction Tech” giving you serrated edges throughout for more contact points. With a 7/10 flex rating, triax fiberglass and carbon stringers, this bad boy is stable at high speeds while still being maneuverable and fun to ride. Grab yourself one of these bad boys before they are all sold out!

  • Burton Deep Thinker

    A favorite of riders like Danny Davis, the Deep Thinker is a great option for the entire mountain. This board is slightly different than the Free Thinker which is a freestyle twin, the Deep Thinker is a directional option which has set back inserts allowing for optimal carving versus the Free Thinker which would be the better option for someone who rides more park. With a swallow tail shape, the back end of this board will sink in softer snow and allow for a more surfy feel when carving through the pow. The flex rating on this bad boy is about a 6/10 and features carbon fiber stringers allowing for a more responsive ride while allowing for some forgiveness when making mistakes and trying new tricks. Bottom line, don’t think too deeply about pulling the trigger on this bad boy! GET YOURS NOW!

  • K2 Joy Driver

    Staying true to the traditional camber shape, the Joy Driver gives you that nostalgic feeling of a traditional board you grew to love. The directional shape means the camber is set back a little to allow you to initiate the turn with the tweekend nose and crank into the turn with your edge under foot. In addition to easing into the turn, tweekend is a great tool for keeping your tips up in deeper snow and keeping your momentum up. WIth a stiff flex and triax fiberglass throughout, this board will hold true and keep you confident even at the fastest speeds. Don’t spiral into depression this winter, take control of your happiness with the K2 Joy Driver.
