Head E.B.I. LYT Snowboard Review 2024 | What's Good

"something you can have fun in the trees with, riding pow days and some awesome groomer days"

The Head EBI LYT is a great board to tackle any terrain the mountain throws your way. The Hybrid Camber POP profile is versatile, combining both Long Direction camber and Twin directional camber, allowing for a great combination of pop and edge hold. The Swallow Tail design provides a surfy feel and helps you float in the powder. The Hexagonal Core in the tip reduces swing weight, while a Triaxial Fiber wrap assures a smooth ride with balanced power distribution. This a phenomenal do-it-all board that excels both on and off-piste.

Head E.B.I. LYT Snowboard Tester Notes

“You can tell by the shape that it's gonna be awesome in pow and rip groomers. It was surprisingly light when I picked it up, but also, when you flexed it, it didn't feel like a soft noodle or anything, kinda like a nice medium flex. When I first got on this board, it was very responsive and quick to turn. It was very fun. Quick. Edge-to-edge was very responsive in the turns and felt pretty light under foot, too, which is nice. Torsionally, it wasn't too stiff. It was a nice medium flex, so it was very easy to steer. I was lucky enough to ride this board on a 30-centimeter powder day, and it excelled. The swallowtail helped keep the tail down; its wider nose makes it float quite nicely. It didn't feel hard to ride in any conditions. It was a nice, playful, do-it-all all board. It leans more towards powder and carving. If you are an all-mountain rider and want something you can have fun in the trees with, riding pow days and some awesome groomer days, this would be the board for you.”—Jon Frye
