Bindings: Rome Black Label
Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis
My Weight: 198lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies with a few intermittent clouds, warmer temps, chunder snow, slushy snow, and some ice.
Flex: Coming in with a middle of the road park flex which is almost standard in boards of this caliber. You have a huge sweet spot with more flex in the tips, progressively stiffening up through the insert packs, and then getting softer in the middle. There is a lot of torsional flex to this board.
Stability: This board is about as stable as you would expect for a park board. There’s chatter in the tips and you do feel that under foot. In rutted out terrain the board bends with everything but manages to stay on top of it. Is it the most stable and damp thing out there? No, but will it get the job done? Yes.
Ollies: The pop is there and it’s very easy to engage. You can be a bit lazy with this board and not aggressively load up the camber section to get it to pop. Or you can be all that is man and load it up. Either way it’s going to snap.
Pop On Jumps: This board is at home on jumps of all sizes and boosts when you pop off a lip. It’s solid in landings and it does what you need it to do.
Butterability: The tips are super buttery. That rocker section just gives such a huge platform to lock in and do whatever you want. You can just press into this board and do any variation you want.
Jibbing: This board is at home on jibs, but then again look at its name. Slow or high speed it’s got you covered. The tips press easily and take no effort to engage but still have a little rebound in them and when you get sideways the camber section hugs the feature and slides perfectly.
Carving: This board is easy to engage and takes minimal effort to transition from edge to edge. You can drive off the tail as you need to and while it’s not the most aggressively powerful board it gets the job done. Short tight quick carves or long hard drawn out ones it doesn’t matter.
Rider in Mind: Park guy that wants a do it all board.
Personal Thoughts: The only reason I did this review is because it’s been a while since we did an update for this board. Nothing’s changed it’s still good, but hey a little refresher never hurts. This deck is solid and an often overlooked board.
