Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy

Conditions: Sunny blue skies, warm temps, and perfect hero snow.
Flex: This board has a unique flex pattern where it’s softer between the feet and stiffer in the tips. This makes it drive more aggressively while still being able to center flex/twist it.
Stability: This board is stable yet lively. What that means is you will feel vibrations but they won’t buck you when charging around the mountain. Getting this board into variable terrain it doesn’t necessarily suck up the dips and drops but just rides over the tops of it.
Ollies: The amount of snap in this board is amazing. You can turn any small hit into a decent sized jump if you want. It does take a bit more to load up the board though due to the unique flex of it.
Pop On Jumps: This board is at home on jumps. It sends it off the lip with ease and really pops. Small to large, send it how you want it to.
Butterability: You really have to work for it to butter this board. I found that pushing the back leg in while having your weight over the nose/tail was the best way to get a mediocre press out of it. Going fast and really over exaggerating what you’re doing is strongly recommended.
Jibbing: High speed and aggressive pressing is the only thing I can recommend to do when jibbing on this board. It’s not a jib stick. It’s an aggressive all mountain freestyle board.
Carving: The sidecut initiates turns easily and locks in when on edge. Hard aggressive carves take a lot of effort to really rail, but once you hit the sweet spot you can be rest assured knowing it’s going to drive all the way through and spring you out the other side.
Rider in Mind: The aggressive all mountain freestyle rider that likes a board with a lot of snap and gusto.
Personal Thoughts: It’s been a long time since I’ve caught an edge and scorpioned on a board, this board did that too me. This board is highly aggressive and at times was a bit of a chore to ride. With all that said the unique flex pattern and its snap make it a jumpers dream.
