Board: Libtech Dagmar
Camber Option: C2. Camber under foot and reverse camber between the feet.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 195lbs
Resort: Arapahoe Basin
Conditions: Puking snow, low to medium visibility, 6 inches of snow or more, icy groomers, firm groomers, wind loaded groomers, and chunder plus crust underneath.
Flex: This board has a very freestyle friendly flex to it making it come in just below a middle of the road. You have play in the tips then stiffer under foot, and softer again in the middle. There’s a lot of torsional flex.
Stability: This board is really lively and moderately stable. You feel the bigger vibrations as well as ruts when you plow into them. Micro vibrations this board does a great job of dissipating the energy. At speeds the tips do flap.
Ollies: The C2 profile is easy to load up and gives some OK snap. It’s not mind blowing and it’s not lacking so it just gets the job done. What I found was that you do have to preload a bit before you pop off a roller or cat track to get optimal boost, no last minute skate style pop allowed here.
Pop On Jumps: I hit some small jumps and this board handled them just fine. Can this board handle a jump? Yeah, small to mediumish is probably where you want it.
Butterability: This board was sucha blast to butter on. You have an optimal flex point right outside the camber zones that you can lock into and the board won’t fight you. Just go in for the butter and let it hold till you want to pop out.
Jibbing: That sweet spot in the tips locks into presses with ease. This board just wants to jib. Getting sideways you do feel the reverse camber not hug the feature as well as it could unless you’re under foot where the camber zone is.
Carving: This board can lay a carve. I railed into turns and would load up the rear camber zone to slingshot me out and it never disappointed. Short quick turns or long hard drawn out carves this board locks in and pushes through anything in its path.
Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle guy that wants a directional deck.
Personal Thoughts: This board handled the pow, it handled the groomers, and it handled the park. It’s definitely a jack of all trades style deck but master to none. The flex is nice for playing around and not having to bring your A-game all the time. While it’s not a damp board it’s still stable for the most part in average terrain, really rutted out stuff it can get bucked around.
