Compatriot Falcon GFR - 2011

http://www.snowboard-review.com/images/brands/compatriot/logo/compatriot_logo.gif

Aggressive all-mountain snowboarders have a new muse! Designed for riders who know their snowboarding arse from their elbow, the Compatriot Falcon GFR will climb up pipe walls faster than a rat up a drain pipe and cut through crud and churned up powder like a hot knife through butter. The Falcon GFR is the stiffest snowboard in the Compatriot line up and certainly not for any snowboarder who isn’t carving confidently down icy double diamond black runs.

Manufacturer's Description:

The Falcon GFR is the enhanced version of the Guide FR from a few years back. Slightly stiffer than the Movement yet with a less insistent sidecut, the Falcon GFR boasts a lightweight yet durable full wood Cowboy Core bonded with our Special Sauce resins to make sure you can get more than one season out of your snowboard investment. Employing our proprietary CFX91 carbon fiber backbone and Knuckle Sandwich Sintered Sidewalls, this board has a smooth flex pattern that is stiff enough for Killington park and pipe missions, yet allows the perfect amount of freedom/flex in the right places for when you want to throw a few slashers into the trees. A great all-mountain board for the discerning snowboard aficionado, this ride is equally at home at Snow Valley as it is in the Chugach. Artwork by SFaustina.
