Endeavor Next, Rossi Krypto, NS Chairman, Unity Dominion
 
Anyone ridden all these and can give fairly good objective perspective on each? Looking at more off-piste/ backcountry riding, not pow specific. Endeavor gets a good wrap but then I saw Bart carving one of these boards and overflexing the nose which knocked him. Rossi, well mtx always has divided view, Chairman looks like it would take 99 percent of people for a ride (Bart seems to like it) and Unity, Pete Wurster changed the shape of the 2015 Dominion to have a long rise nose similar to his Whale model. Interested to hear thoughts

Perhaps not going to help much... but at least bring some opinion so that more people chime in......

In terms of the Next, why would you look at an Eurocarving on groomer video to assess it's handling on off-piste/bc powder riding?

I would probably discard the Rossi, just because they have such short effective edge compare to the size. It would actually be beneficial in pow, but since you've referred to the carving videos... maybe you want more edge? Also it has magnetraction, which i don't love for pow; and it's not really that stiff... no carbon i think.

Slash straight. Have you looked into it? seems to me just what you're looking for.

The Endeavor Next has only 1 tip-tail carbon stringer plus tail carbon, maybe that's why it doesnt have a very stiff nose for groomer carving. It is much more of a pow board than a euro carver. Endeavor has a board called Board of Directors which has the whole set of carbon stringers... but is maybe much more poweder/freestyle than what you're looking for... The slash straight also has all that carbon.

Otherwise, the Dominion looks solid.

FWIW I don't think the Chairman is going to be that difficult of a ride for most people. I'm a very average rider - advanced intermediate at best, and I didn't find it to be a challenging ride at all.
