The Full Review:
When I first strapped into this board, I was expecting a fun ride on a very traditional style snowboard. Well, my expectations were more than met! Not only did I get a fun ride on a great reverse camber all-mountain board, but it was light and really responsive.

I found this board to perform well in the trees, and off-piste. I had great control and edge hold, even while riding on a relatively icy condition. The board was poppy and light, and it felt weightless as I soared through the air on a variety of jumps and side hits. Overall, I felt that this board was easy to control and really fun to ride.

The Good: 
Lightweight, good turning radius, easy to control, holds an edge.

The Bad: 
Little chatter in the nose at higher speeds, but not too terrible.

The Bottom Line: 
This is a fun ride and would be an awesome buy for any rider that is looking for more of a “do all” board.
