The Curated Take

Andrew Trager, Snowboarding Expert
By the Expert Community

The 2023 Riders Choice C2 is a fantastic board option for riders who want one board to do it all. This board is soft and flexy, resulting in a playful feel with amazing torsional flex. You do not feel glued to the ground, and the board does exactly what youre thinking. Although it is a medium flex board, it holds up at high speeds. This board wants to charge, and does so very well. The Riders Choice jumps, grinds, and charges with ease. The magna traction significantly increases traction on ice, helping to dial in turns when conditions are fighting against you. Although this board is priced highly, it is worth it. You wont need a park board, a speed board, and a powder board. This one board, can truly do it all, and I understand what its called the Riders Choice.

Ideal for
  • Fantastic oneboard quiver
  • Amazing for all mountain riding
  • Very playful, while keeping stability
Not ideal for
  • Not the lightest board on the market

Excellent for whatever you’re doin

Originally posted at www.gnu.com on Nov 12, 2023
I got this board for the groomers and occasional park session. 165 5’10” size 9. On the softer side for powder than I like but dialed in for groomers and being jibby. I got the hyper for the pow we’re predicted to have in Tahoe.

One of the best boards in the history of snowboards

Originally posted at www.gnu.com on Mar 20, 2023
I’m 188 cm and 87 kg. Was looking for do it all board. Tested quite many of. Ended up to B’s Process 162. Unfortunately Process 162 weights 3,4 kg, which is like tank! This kind of weight is limiting the play factor. You can really feel it. I’m choosing boards only from the brands who are valuing sustainability and ethicalness. Found reviews from the 2023 RC and decided to order. Weight of the 161,5 is by the way 3,05 kg. Instantly in the first run RC felt perfect for me. Quite flexy but slightly on the not too much -side. Jumps perfectly and felt stabile in the landings. Carves nice as well. Extremely happy to the product. Best boards what I’ve ever ridden: Burton Skeleton Key Mystery XX 158 Gnu Riders Choice 161,5 Never ridden Orca though ????

I’m used to settling for less than optimal feedback from customer service reps and could tell pretty quickly that Grant was More than that. He definitely knew his stuff and took me on a journey of different boards until I felt really comfortable about my purchase. I bought a board based on his recommendation and excited to ride it!

Leo moved me from unsure and indecisive to fully outfitted with a shop nearby to assist, and he did it at a great price. There's no doubt he's an expert, which helped me get passed the endless options in buying skis, and he did it without any pressure to make a final purchase. I did make the purchase and I'll be back in the future.
