Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 188lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: Sunny blue skies, light wind, fresh fast corduroy with pockets of powder, and above average temps.
Flex: This board comes in at just a smidge below a middle of the road all mountain freestyle focused flex. You get a fair amount of play in the tip as it slowly stiffens up right before and through the insert packs. The torsional give really allows you to center flex the board and drive it through turns.
Stability: The core profiling coupled with the shape make this board smooth and stable. You’ll notice a little bit of chatter at higher rates of speed, but not enough to fatigue your legs as the day goes on. You might get tossed around in deeper moguls and rutted out terrain so just remember to bend your knees.
Ollies: This board has that right amount of snap that lets you pop but you don’t have to super load it to get results. It’s easy to initiate and takes minimal effort to get up onto features or over slow signs or small children.
Pop On Jumps: This board is at home sucking up transition and boosting. Where some boards make you work to pop on a jump, this board works with what the lip of the jump has going on to aid you.
Butterability: Having rocker in the tips helps with pressing this board into the snow. What you’ll notice is that there’s an ample sweet spot right where the camber meets the rocker zone. It’s that blend mixed with the flex pattern that allows you to get over the tips with ease while still not buckling under your weight.
Jibbing: The camber section locks into rails and slides superbly. The tips are soft yet stable enough to press into and snap out of.
Carving: The added contact point in the middle of the board allows you to grip the snow when on edge and railing a carve. When you drive through the tail causing the nose to lift up you have that added bump there to allow you to set in. Whether doing short quick turns or long drawn out hard carves this board can turn and stay locked in.
Rider in Mind: The weekend warrior quiver of one guy.
Personal Thoughts: This board has a lot going on for it. The core profiling, sidecut, and flex combine together with the camrocker profile to give you a well rounded quiver of one board. Whether you’re lapping the pipe, park, groomer, or chasing pow you have a deck that can get after it.
