Forum Recon - 2012


I honestly thought I would never see the day that the Recon got rockered, but it’s happened. The Recon is exactly the same as it was before, it features an extruded base, a directional twin shape and directional flex pattern and a medium/soft flex, but it’s now also sporting Chilly Dog rocker instead of camber.  The Recon is a fantastic snowboard for beginners through to intermediates to learn the basics of freestyle snowboarding on.

Manufacturer's Description:

Proposition 720 states: “The right for every rider to shred a board that’s as resilient and reliable as it is affordable and capable. The right for those who ride hard to get the same from their board without breaking bank. The right to include ChillyDog with Pop for a stable, playful, and poppy ride to rip apart park sessions. The right to hit, slide, and slap it anyway you want. The right to ride the Recon.” Vote YES on 720.

Recommended for park riding.
