Who is the Scott Stevens Pro Suited To?
The Scott Stevens Pro is best suited to those who predominantly ride park or those that want a separate board for riding park.
It's a really buttery, agile, playful ride, that loves jibs, spins and buttering around.
The Scott Stevens Pro in More Detail
O.k. let’s take a more detailed look at what the Scott Stevens Pro is capable of.
Board: Capita Scott Stevens Pro 2021, 155cm (255mm waist width)
Date: February 21, 2020
Conditions: Groomers on the firmer side of medium but not overly hard and softened up a bit later on.
A little crunchy off groomer, but not too bad.
Relatively cold and a little bit of a cold wind made it quite cold on lift but overall just moderately cold. Warmer in sun of course.
Nice and sunny and great visibility.
Bindings angles: +15/-15
Stance width: 555mm (21.9″)
Stance Setback: Centered
Width at Inserts: 265mm (10.4")
Rider Height: 6'0"
Rider Weight: 175lbs
Rider Boot Size: US10 Salomon Lo-Fi
Bindings Used: Burton Malavita M
Weight: 2820grams (6lbs 3oz)
Weight per cm: 18.19 grams/cm
Average Weight per cm: 18.36 grams/cm*
*based on a small sample size of around 80 models that I've weighed in 2019, 2020 & 2021 models. So, a little lighter than average, but felt even lighter on snow than the weight suggests.
Damp or Chattery?
Pretty chattery. Can feel everything on it! But it's designed to feel everything, and when you get it on jibs, you really appreciate that feel.
Smooth or Snappy?
Not ultra snappy, but certainly more snappy than smooth.
Not made for powder. It's got rocker tip and tail, so it will have something there, but otherwise, not well suited to powder, IMO, at least not deep powder.
Carving & Turning
Carving: Feels pretty washy when you try to really lay into a carve. Not what this board is meant for, IMO.
Turning: Really easy going turner. Super easy laid back turner.
Maneuverability at Slow Speeds: Nice and nimble and playful at slow speeds
Skidded Turns: Easy to skid turns on. Not a catchy bone in its body.
Actually surprised me a little with speed. Better than I expected. But still not great at speed overall. Especially if you're trying to lay down a high-speed carve. Gets a bit squirelly/washy. But could handle more speed than I would have guessed.
You can feel every little bump on this board. Handles bumps well, but you feel them - not very damp. But very good at weaving through bumps.
Same thing in crud, you can really feel it buck you about. But it compensates for that by being really easy to correct on.
Really fun for small jumps and side-hits and little spins.
Pop: Not ultra poppy by any means, but what's there is really effortless to extract
Approach: Nice and nimble, yet stable enough for small jumps but gets a bit unstable for faster approaches to larger jumps.
Landing: Stable enough for smaller jumps and nice and forgiving for off landings, but not a stomper and not ideal for bigger jumps.
Side-hits: Really fun. Easy pop, nice and nimble for trickier setups.
Small jumps/Big Jumps: Most suited to small, IMO. OK for medium, but not so great for larger jumps.
Really good as you'd expect.
Great fun for spins, especially for little spins off the end of boxes/rails etc. Feels nice and light and easy to get the spin around, easy pop and landing and setting up switch is great. Not as suitable for bigger tricks though.
This is a killer jib board! Even for a not-very-strong jibber like me, I felt confident hitting jibs and trying things that I wouldn't on most boards. Everything - the setup, on the jib and the dismount - felt like it was in harmony with riding jibs.
Super easy to butter on.
Score Breakdown and Final Verdict

Contribution to Final Score
TOTAL after normalizing
The Scott Stevens Pro is a fun little park board for those that want to keep things playful and creative and tend to favor the jib line in the park. Really nice to spin and butter and fun for little side-hits.
Don't expect it to be a charger - not what it's made for, but if you ride it to it's strengths, it's a super fun, playful ride.
