What is with no snoq boards? They look completely different from other boards? &&What are they for? They are pretty price-ie, but I dont hear much about them and yet there are a few for sale on the site???

noSnos are an english designed mountain board . They have a fully composite deck and ali or composite trucks. They dont use kingpins to turn but the axel floats on rubber bushings allowing for greater stability at higher speeds. This also causes them to have a very strong return to center which gives them a reputation of being difficult to turn. At higher speeds this issue dissappears and it all starts making sense :) they work better with snowboard boots for extra control. They are suited more for boarder x or downhill or freeride, due to the increased weight freestyle is normally avoided. Search facebook for the nosno owners club.

I find no sno a little harder to ride than my mbs. It turns harder and faster but is very unforgiving. Mistakes that you can get away with on a spring truck board can have you face down sliding in the dirt on a no sno. At least thsts how it is for me.

NoSno's take a lot more time to adjust to what's right for you. But if you want the best brake system for any Mountainboard and or go more than 25mph often, they're the way to go for DH/freeride.
