Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, sustained moderate winds, cooler temps, chop, chunder, ice, and perfect hero snow on the groomers.

Flex: Coming in just below a middle of the road all mountain flex this is to be expected as this is a entry level board. You get more flex in the tips that’s accentuated by the rocker zones then it stiffens up slightly through the camber section. The torsional flex is highly abundant.

Stability: For what this board is there’s some solid stability through the camber section. The cork in the sidewall helps dissipate any vibrations that seep in when the board is on edge. There is a ton of chatter in the nose and tail at high speed and it will mostly resonate back underfoot. In rutted out terrain this board does get bounced around a bit.

Ollies: The camber profile is super easy to engage. This gives it a little bit of snap but due to the flex in the tips when you roll back on the tail it folds slightly and loses some of its rebound. Sure it can pop, but it’s not the snappiest thing out there and can get a bit soggy if you aren’t careful.

Pop On Jumps: Small and medium jumps are what this board is made for. The flex is just too soft for anything bigger. It pops off the lip with relative ease and will get you in the air.

Butterability: Here’s where this board stands out. The flex in the tips is immense and you can just lock into a butter and know it’s going to hold for as long as you want. When it’s sideways it doesn’t catch it just glides. If you want to manipulate this board you can in any way, shape, or form.

Jibbing: This board locks into presses and just holds it to the end of the feature. When it gets there you can feel the camber section take over and give you a little snap. It’s super easy to jib on this board. Going sideways it just flexes right around the feature and almost claps out.

Carving: Surprisingly for as soft as this board is the edge control was real good. It has a quick and nimble edge to edge power transmission. You can feel the board grip underfoot which makes it nice for ankle steering. When you want to carve it will let you and if you know what you’re doing you can lay it over to a point and it won’t fold on you. Short tight quick carves to medium long drawn out ones are really its strong suit.

Rider in Mind: Progressing rider that wants a board that can do it all.

Personal Thoughts: They revamped this board for this year and it rides well for what it is. It’s not going to be anything overly mind blowing or stand out, but it gets the job done and that’s what you need when you’re at the level of rider for this board.
