Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 177lbs
Resort: Arapahoe Basin
Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, no wind, brisk but warm temps, and perfect hero snow.
Flex: This board is every so slightly past a middle of the road flex. There’s just a bit more give in the tips than under foot and through the middle. The torsional give is there but not highly abundant.
Stability: For being so small this board was actually relatively stable. It absorbed chatter and the deep ruts in the snow with ease. On edge it never wanted to wash out.
Ollies: The snap out of this deck was superb. It loaded up relatively easily and when it popped you would boost. Hitting side hits, rollers, and natural features you could count on this board to get it done.
Pop On Jumps: Sending a jump was easy with this board. It set up perfectly and just went for it without faltering.
Butterability: The tips do take a bit more effort to press into, but once you find the sweet spot you’re golden. It would lock in and do what you needed it to do.
Jibbing: This board can jib that’s for sure. It snaps up and onto urban approach features with ease. Locking into presses takes little to no effort.
Carving: Railing turns is super fun on this board. It just wants to dig in and send it through the carve with ease. Edge to edge initiation takes minimal effort and the board does not hook up.
Rider in Mind: Park guy that does it all and will ride the whole mountain.
Personal Thoughts: This board was a lot of fun. It railed turns, popped off rollers, and did everything I wanted it to. It was versatile yet playful which made it a lot of fun.
