Blue Tomato:

Size: 155

Camber Option: Fusion Camber. Micro rocker in the tips, camber throughout.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, warm temps, slush, chop, chunder, left over hot pow, and perfect groomers.

Flex: This boards overall flex comes in just below a middle of the road. You get a bit more play in the tips and then it stiffens up through the middle with a ton of torsional flex.

Stability: At speed you get chatter in the tips and that resonates back underfoot. In rutted out terrain this board can get bucked around.

Ollies: This board has some solid snap. The camber profile is super easy to load up and when you roll back on the tail it just springs you right up into the air. This board lets you be laid back with how you engage it which means you can hit anything last minute and just pop.

Pop On Jumps: This boards at home hitting a jump whether small, medium, and if you’re feeling comfortable go to the large one. It snaps off the lip and just lets you get up into the air.

Butterability: The rocker in the tip and tail helps accentuate the sweet spots. This board locks in and just lets you butter however you want and the camber takes over and it snaps out.

Jibbing: Those sweet spots where the rocker are just lock into a press and hold it so well. When you hit the end of the feature it snaps out. Going sideways this board cradles the feature but doesn’t clap out.

Carving: While I won’t say this is the most rigid board for driving hard carves it’s still a great board for turning on. It rolls in and out of turns with ease while steering underfoot. On edge when you crank your back knee into the center of the board you can apex the carve more. The issue that comes into play is the softer flex does cause it to buckle from time to time.

Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle rider.

Personal Thoughts: I love this board. I owned it. It rides well and is super predictable. It turns with ease and occasionally lets you crank a carve when you need to. It has snap yet is still playful. For the price this board is a great bang for the buck.
