Size: 159

Camber Option: Cruise camber. A mostly mellow camber with a little rocker in the tips.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: Mostly sunny skies, warm temps, zero wind, chop, chunder, slush, and perfect corduroy with a little ice.

Flex: This board comes in just past a middle of the road all mountain flex. There’s a little more flex in the tips but it stiffens up midway back to the insert pack and through the middle. The torsional flex isn’t overly abundant but there is a little as well.

Stability: For being a price point board this deck is super stable. You do get a tiny amount of chatter in the tips but it never resonates back underfoot. Through the middle section you can just feel the stability and it really pushes through chop and chunder with ease.

Ollies: This board has a ton of snap. You do have to aggressively load up the camber to get it to engage, but it will rebound. This board likes to pop and the snap is assertive. You want to boost you’ll be able to launch anything.

Pop On Jumps: Small to large this boards got you covered for hitting jumps. It has the spring you want when you load up to pop off the lip, but if you’re laid back it’ll still let you send it. The stability it has underfoot helps with steeper landings.

Butterability: This is where this board lacks. Even with having a slightly softer tips it just has to be man handled to get it to engage. You have to utilize more speed and really press into it to get it to lock in. If you want to butter, you might want to look at another board.

Jibbing: Speed and using your muscles are key here. This board takes a lot of effort to hold a press and then it abruptly snaps out of the feature. Going sideways the board is almost balancing on the top of it like a teeter totter due to there not being as much give.

Carving: Here’s where this board sticks out. This thing rips carves and just feels super locked in on edge when you’re just cruising. When you aggressively drive this board you can lay it over and feel the power out of the tail as it propels you out of a turn. The edge to edge power transmission is super fluid and powerful. This board wants to be on edge and it wants you to push it hard. If you like railing deep hard carves this is a deck to consider.

Rider in Mind: Price conscious all mountain guy.

Personal Thoughts: This board packs a punch for the price. It’s a serious bang for the buck ripper. I wasn’t expecting it to be this stiff or as assertive. It did break in a bit as the day went on but damn did this board just want to haul ass and leave trenches in its path. I was really blown away by this board.
