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