• Snappy edge-to-edge response.
• Solid hold on ice.
• Responds with power when ridden hard.
• Light swing-weight.
• Lacked pop (not park-friendly).
• Squirrelly in cut-up snow.
• Not as floaty as we hoped.
The best thing about this board is its control. It has lightning-fast edge-to-edge transitions, an extra-thick damping system which smoothed out most chunky snow, and great stability at top speeds, though it is lackluster in powder. Intermediates found the board stiff in a good way, earning it “confidence-inspiring” merit, but advanced riders would’ve liked even more. It’s a board that will suit riders moving up from intermediate to advanced.
