Bindings: K2 Lien AT
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

Resort: Arapahoe Basin
Conditions: Mix of sun and clouds, some fresh snow in spots, and perfect corduroy everywhere else.
Flex: This board isn’t stiff it’s just really snappy and lively. You have to man handle it to get what you want, but it’s not stiff I can’t stress that enough.
Stability: You’ll feel micro vibrations resonating through this board due to the lightweight construction. It does suck up variable terrain really well and won’t buck you if you get too off balance.
Ollies: The snap from the camber and the internal components of this boards makes it want to boost. It does take a bit more to get it to load up and pop, but when it does you’ll know you’re going to the high heavens.
Pop On Jumps: If you like over shooting jumps this might be the board for you. It just goes fast and boosts hard.
Butterability: It takes a bit of work to get this board to press into the snow, but it is doable. I would suggest high speed buttering only as you won’t like what happens if you’re going slow and being lazy.
Jibbing: Not exactly a board I would jib on but you can do it. I’ll leave it at that.
Carving: This board slingshots in and out of turns. It locks into carves and pushes hard out of them. The edge to edge transitions are easy and as long as you’re on point you won’t have any issues riding this board.
Rider in Mind: The tech nerd that has to have the lightest most expensive board they can find and who wants to go really fast.
Personal Thoughts: This board sits in that echelon of boards that exist solely to gloat about all the tech they have in them. It’s not a board for the every-man and that’s OK. It’s the board that will do what you want only if it’s turned up to 11 at all times.
