Size: 151

Camber Option: Extra Camber. Rocker in the nose camber throughout.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Arapahoe Basin

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, warm temps, mild winds, lumpy mashed potato snow with a little bit of ice in spots.

Flex: With a fully directional flex you get a softer nose that stiffens up through the tail. The overall flex is just past a middle of the road. When it comes to the torsional flex it’s there but has some solid rebound.

Stability: The width gives this board most of its stability the rest comes from the carbon layup and core construction. The rocker in the nose does get a little flap at speeds but it stops fully before it hits the front foot. In rutted out terrain it just plows through everything in its path.

Ollies/Pop: The snap of this board is super solid. It all comes down to the camber section which takes a bit of effort to load up but the rebound is immense and well worth what you put into it. Go launch off whatever you want.

Butterability: The nose is going to be the sweet spot to butter with this board due in part to the rocker. You can really get your weight out over and just feel it lock in and then rebound out. The tail takes more effort and what you put in is what you will get out.

Carving: Here’s where this board shines. That carbon slimwall gives you a ton of response out of your carves. You can feel that power from the camber being pushed into the edges. It has a smooth edge to edge transfer even if it does feel slightly delayed due to the width of this board. On edge it just locks in and cuts through everything in its path.

Rider in Mind: Someone that wants a camber beefier warpig that’s in the volume shifted category.

Personal Thoughts: Riding it with the new Carbon Slimwall you can feel that it has more power going to the edges and gives a responsive ride when you’re carving. It feels stiffer but that’s only because it’s losing less power to the sidewall and responding more accordingly. Overall it’s a great board for what it is and if you wanted a beefier Warpig this is what I would consider.
