Board: Telos Adit

The House: https://bit.ly/3VWrmqS
Camber Option: Camber underfoot with rocker. Think of it as a hybrid camber profile.
Bindings: Rome Black Label
Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 200lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: A mix of sun and clouds, average temps, fresh corduroy, ice, left over pow, and some lumpy terrain for good measure.
Flex: This boards soft and the rocker in the tips accentuates this. There’s a ton of torsional flex which really lets you play with it however you want. It’s mildly stiffer right under the inserts and I mean mildly.
Stability: There’s very little stability. You feel everything with this board and when it gets into rutted out terrain it gets bucked around.
Ollies: What you put in is what you get out of it and even then it’s not the snappiest deck out there. This board is a bit sluggish when you do try to pop off anything.
Pop On Jumps: Small and smedium sized jumps are where you want to keep it. This board will just buckle if you load up too hard on the lip or set it down aggressively.
Butterability: This board is super buttery. You want to press the nose or tail just lean forward or backwards and you’re in it. You can flex this board till it just buckles and kicks out.
Jibbing: This is what this board is built for. So if you’re just learning how this board will help you. The only downside to this board is that it lacks any rigidity so you can just over power it if you get a little over zealous. The sweet spots in the tips are immense and just lock in.
Carving: Hope you like skidding turns and doing mellow carves. This board just lacks any rigidity to crank a super hard carve and as such it kicks out. Short quick mellow carves are its strong suit.
Rider in Mind: Someone that likes jibbing everything and wants a super soft board.
Personal Thoughts: I swear the camber profile is more exaggerated than the last time I rode it and that makes it super playful but lacking any snap and response. The previous version was great for what it was, this leaves a bit more to be desired. It just folded a lot more than the previous version.
