As with the last three seasons this year’s Endeavor High5 Series gets high caliber artwork from one of Snowboard-Review’s favourite artists Mr Derek Stenning. Strip back the killer graphics and underneath is a highly tuned monster V8 of a snowboard. Not just cambered but Super Cambered (yep that’s 1.5cms of camber) with Basalt fiberglass and more Carbon than a Chinese coal-fired power station the High5 is built for pop. The longer effective edge, created by introducing flat kicks, will please those that like to dig trenches in corduroy, hit huge tabletops and take more speed than anyone else into ice pipe transitions. This is a board for expert riders only who want a snowboard that delivers on firm to hard snow condition.

Last year’s highly acclaimed redesign of the Endeavor Board Of Directors Series has worked its all-mountain freestyle magic once again, but this year on a completely new tester. When you look at the B.O.D it kind of feels like Endeavor has taken all of the highlights of other snowboards in their 12/13 line, thrown them together and hoped that it would work. Well they have and it works! Zero camber for float; a twin shape for freestyle versatility; DowTech for a looser feel; flat kicks with an extra-long effective edge for grip; basalt and carbon for pop; a sintered 7500 base for speed; Endeavor’s Phantom Core to reduce weight and the list goes on. It’s little surprise that the Board Of Directors is the office favourite.

If you didn’t know, British Columbia, Canada, the home of Endeavor has some of the best big mountain freeride terrain and snow conditions on the planet, a fantastic testing ground for a freeride missile like the Endeavor Next Series. With legends like Shin Campos putting the Next Series through its paces and the majority of the office using it as the freeride stick in their quiver the next certainly gets a lot of quality R&D time. The Next has a typical directional tapered shape for improved float and a less dive-y feel in deeps snow, there’s plenty of carbon in the tail and a structural bamboo topsheet to keep the Next Series strong in the tail for pointing pillow lines and powering through turns. For Easyriders the 159 is also available with reverse camber.

The Endeavor Live Series meets intermediate to expert snowboarder’s riding needs in every way. It has a medium flex, a kinda lively sidecut, a good amount of pop and is stable enough when you want to blast groomers of charge in the backcountry. Without being exceptional at one aspect of snowboarding the Live Series ticks all the terrain and riding style boxes off without breaking a sweat, very much like the Rome Agent. Solid, dependable and comfortable like your favorite pair of trainers.

Endeavor’s latest release the New Standard Series is for the more serious freestylers out there. The New Standard is packed with more tech than Inspector Gadget’s man bag. There’s new exagerated DowTech 2 lifting the contact points a country mile off the snow so you can forget about catching your edges in the snow and then a rail ready tune that bevels the edges clear of any contact with bozes or rails. The flex has been kept moderate but carbon between the bindings adds pop to the zero camber profile while keeping the tips playful for butters and presses. Due to a bit of additional width and a flat kick nose and tail Endeavor advises you size down 3-4cm from your normal freestyle board length.

The Color Series is Endeavor’s board for the jibbers and muffin butterers out there. If this explanation is absolute gobbledygook to you then all you need to know is that the Color is a soft twin snowboard designed for sliding down handrails and boxes in the park and urban features on the streets that hurt a ton if you fall off. For those that do know the difference between a Pretzel and a Danish outside of baking techniques then you’ll know that the reverse camber profile, wide stance options, negative core profile and rubber sidewall inlays mean this board presses like a dream and will take a lot of abuse before it submits.

Like Endeavor’s female focused ride the Boyfriend, the Guerilla Series gets a complete redesign for 2013. In previous years the Guerilla was a cambered directional snowboard, and actually a board that we rated extremely highly for broad all-mountain riding. The new Guerilla might have very little resemblance to the Guerilla of previous years but even in its new form its onus is on providing a progressive riding experience for beginners through to advanced snowboarders on a budget all over the mountain. The new early rise hybrid camber profile means that the new twin shape can be ridden in all snow conditions. Endeavor has also been scouting materials suppliers for a higher performance glass which they’ve included in the Endeavor Guerilla’s construction.

Ohhh weee the Endeavor Diamond Series just got the award winning Board of Director treatment… if you want to know how well the BOD rides, just check the glowing reviews on this site! From directional all-mountain gun to twin all-mountain freestyle stick the new shaping includes a zero camber profile with DowTech at the contact points which raises the traditional contact points at the start of the effective edge off the snow for a looser feel with minimal catchiness. New flat kicks shorten the overall length of the nose and tail meaning an extra couple of centimeters can be squeezed into the effective edge for improved edge hold in shorter lengths. A 7500 Sintered base improves acceleration and top speed in a variety of snow conditions.

Like a lot of Endeavor’s 12/13 snowboard line, the Endeavor Boyfriend’s design has been revised with help of Endeavor’s shape and construction guru Jason Broz. Jason spends his days locked in Endeavor’s state of the art Archetype lab tweaking existing shapes and construction to make Endeavor boards some of the best on the plant. This year the twin shaped Endeavor Boyfriend Series gets a new camber profile with early rise tips that blend form a camber zone between the feet to a 3mm rise before transitioning into low profile kicks. To retain the pop that Boyfriend owners are used to, Endeavor have added Carbon to the construction and to reduce chatter and improve stability there are now rubber inlays in the sidewalls.

For kids learning their first turns or attacking the terrain park like they’ve been on a snowboard since birth the recently refreshed Endeavor Shorty packs everything an aspiring grom could need. Zero camber and a convex base keep the Shorty as catch free as it’s possible to make a snowboard and a soft torsional flex make learning all sorts and butters, jibs and even basic turning a breeze. There’s no foam core or CAP construction in the Shorty which uses the same materials as you’ll find in Endeavor’s more expensive adult shreds.

If we were judging snowboard on their graphics, the High5 would be a winner again, for the third year in a row. Computer games concept artist Derek Stenning killed the High5 graphics last year with the iconic Cosmonauts series and this year his Military Patches themed work is equally exciting… somebody please buy the man a beer! Besides its stunning exterior the High5 packs a lot of features and top level performance between its base and topsheet. Conventional triaxial fibreglass has been replaced with Basalt fibres, changing the feel of the board and reducing the weight. The flat kicks allow Endeavor to increase the effective edge of the High5 by a couple of centimetres, giving you the opportunity size down a couple of centimetres on your usual board size without losing edge hold. Under the bindings is a new layer of rubber dampening improving stability and reducing vibrations on sketchy snow. The Endeavor High5 is a missile of a freestyle snowboard for advanced riders who focus on big park and pipe transitions and like to catch plenty of air.

When I was a kid I would have died with excitement if my folks had bought me a Shorty Series. Available in nine lengths between 100cm and 145cm the Shorty Series is designed to be versatile and durable whilst not being an absolute sponge like most other grom’s boards.

Endeavor build boards for Canadian mountains and so it wouldn’t be right for them to totally forget about their freeride clientele. The Next Series is Endeavor’s stiff directional freeride snowboard designed for steep faces, variable snow conditions and big drops. It has a stiff longitudinal and torsional flex from the bamboo topsheet, triaxial fibreglass and carbon stringers that run the length and then V in the tail for laying down back seat landings. The nose is elongated for improved float in powder and the board runs on a slick 7500 grade sintered base so your descents can reach terminal velocity. For those after something a little more forgiving, the 159 is available with a rocker profile too.

Twin shaped with a soft flexing camber profile, the Endeavor Boyfriend is a great choice for experienced female riders who want a park specific ride but is an equally savvy choice for beginners who want a fun well priced board to learn on.

I hear it said all of the time that brands aren’t building enough high performance snowboards for experienced female snowboarders. Well I think it’s more a case of women looking in the wrong places. Endeavor has been building the Diamond for years, it’s directional shape, sintered 7500 base and longer than average sidecut are perfect for high speed all-terrain assault. The triaxial fibreglass is there to keep pressure focused along the edge and into the snow and the carbon stringers are all about making the Diamond a lively and exciting snowboard to ride. Put that in your pipe and smoke it ladies.

The Endeavor Guerilla is a surprisingly capable directional, cambered, all-mountain snowboard that will have intermediates tearing-up the mountain and expert riders wondering why they’ve spent so much on top of the range boards when a board that costs half the price rips just as hard.

The High 5 is like no other. By using Flat Kicks the High 5 has a longer effective edge than other boards of the same length; in other words if you size down a couple of centre meters for you freestyle board you’ll get the same grip that you would from your all mountain board. Perfect for advanced freestylers who like bigger jumps and halfpipe where edge grip is essential.

The Guerrilla is Endeavor’s price point all-mountain snowboard, but don’t let the price mislead you. The Guerilla is seriously fun to ride, really capable on all types of terrain and on different snow conditions and looks like a million dollars. You can be confident that it is one of the best boards for the money on the market.

Everyone has gone rocker mad! Endeavor like rocker but they know that there’s no replacing camber when it comes to top to bottom performance. With this in mind the RC series is designed to be a fun, buttery ride to help freestylers get their jib on and lay their skills down with smooth easy style. Endeavor’s rocker profile is very similar to Lib-Tech’s banana profile, with rocker between the feet and flat from the tips to the bindings. We love the very Cypress Hill graphic!

Whistler is a mecca for backcountry freestylers, the enormous November dumps (last year 7m in November alone) heavy costal snowpack and incredibly varied terrain make Whistler unique. The guys at Endeavor have designed the Next Series to meet the demands of snowboards who want to ride powder in the morning and then fire off kickers all afternoon. Taper, a setback stance and a firm flex make the Next Series the ultimate board for charging in the pow.

The Roots Series is a softer ride for lighter riders but with carbon stringers for extra pop. The Roots has a centered stance and a twin shape resulting in a park and pipe specific deck. Limited availablity out of Japan, and probably one of the best looking boards of the season… well that’s our opinion anyway.

The Next Series rockered brother, the RC delivers great float in powder and incredible response edge-to-edge in the deep stuff. A stunning board for killing it all over the mountain from park to pow. Probably a little heavy for light and feeble riders.

Endeavor’s all-mountain aggresive freestyle board, with plenty of carbon fibre to stiffen up the torsional flex and Quaruba an exotic african wood in the core to increase pop and reduce the weight. The Board of Directors is the board the big dogs at Endeavor ride so it can’t be bad!
