The Full Review:
This was the biggest board I rode over the two days I spent at Demo Days, and oddly one of the most comfortable since I usually ride between 160-162. The board didn’t feel HUGE and it was very very stable. It is quite stiff and I could see how it would definitely be a workout on the legs to ride a board like this for the whole day. It’s perfect for that hard-charging freerider!
Somehow it still had a very nice floaty ollie, and surprisingly easy to tweak and rotate in the air! I was even able to land a pretty clean 360 on a built jump. Switch was fun but a little sloppy sometimes due to its shape. You can definitely feel the difference in side cut and flew when not riding in your normal direction. The board was very very fast, even in the late afternoon slush.

May be too stiff for some riders
The Bottom Line:
Tried and True and a great all mountain ripper!
