Summary

The verdict for The Face 2016 Kid’s Snowboard goes out to be positive. One major disadvantage which was reported in this snowboard was that the bindings are not included. However, if the company has not included bindings then the price is also made cheaper. Moreover, steel edges are a perfect solution to it.

Children’s snowboards are very hard to find, because if we make the size of the snowboard small then the shape of the snowboard is disturbed. On the other hand, if we make the shape of the board regular then it won’t stay in the kid’s size limit.

The engineers at Face Company set to find a solution to this problem and they came up with The Face 2016 Kid’s Snowboard. This Snowboard has the perfect regular all mountain shape and it is available in two most hard to find kids sizes i.e. 100cm and 110cm. It has some other cool features too mentioned below.

The Face 2016 Kids Snowboard Review

Steel Edges

We all know that steel is a very strong and durable material. How about integrating some steel in a snowboard? Well Face tried this crazy idea and the results were amazing. The 2016 Kids Snowboard has steel edges, all 360 degrees round, therefore the edges are stronger than ever. These edges have another benefit too that they help to learn on dependable and forgiving edge control.

Face really tried something new but the results are surprising. The standard four hole pattern guarantees speed. Do note that Bindings are not included in the package, however, the 360-degree steel edge is something more than enough.

Wood Core

The core material is what determines the weight of the board and weight decides whether a board can be ridden or not? In this case, we are talking about wood as the core material. While many youngsters love the snap of a wood board, others say that wood core is the best because it is lightweight.

The 2016 The Face Snowboard is of the same high quality as of the adult ones so you need not worry about it. The long lasting camber will not disappoint you even if you are a hardcore rider. Many people reported that their young ones loved this snowboard because it actually helps to boost up your skills.

Verdict
