DC HKD & HKD Pro Devun Snowboard Review by The Good Ride
*A Park Rocket and a great All Mountain Directional Twin! It's very hard to find a good
directional twin or twin that is not a park noodle. This is perfect for someone who loves to hit the
jumps, ride the pipe and put some time in all over the mountain. DC stepped into the snowboard
market with leather bound book and rich mahogany class. It comes in many styles and lengths but
all the boards perform the same. All we can say is keep up the good work and stay classy DC! See

Groomers- Great on groomers regular or switch. It can perform well on hard pack and groomed
powder. The only issue with this board is in the flats it tends to get a little catchy/squirrelly.
When you’re out of the flats this problem goes away. We detuned the tops of the effective edges
before the first ride but went back again and gave it a little more filing than you normally would.
After that we found this issue to be almost nonexistent. It just shows what incredibly sharp
edges you have with this board. When the groomers get chewed up it handles the inconsistent
terrain very well. Its torsional stiffness allows you to really open up and make high speed turns
without feeling like you are on a small narrow board.
Powder- It's surprising that our findings were similar to DC's company line about this board. It
handles better than almost any other cambered directional twin. It does very well in moderate
depths and ok in the deep stuff. The nose and tail really do help you float a little better in the pow
than you would think.
Speed- Not much contact length means not that much board on the snow. DC has a small contact
length but the board doesn't ride small at all! Its fast base and excellent
