Bindings: K2 Indy

Stance: 21.5 Huge 15 Adverse 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Measurement 10

My Weight: 195 lbs

Resort: Copper Mountain

Circumstances: A mixture of excessive stage clouds and solar with gentle wind, colder temps, and about 2 toes of recent snow.

Flex: Full directional all mountain above center of the street flex. Softer nostril that takes an extended whereas to progressively get stiffer beneath the entrance foot. From the mid level between the insert packs again to the tail it will get even stiffer. There’s a good quantity of torsional flex which makes this board extra nimble than you’ll suppose for its measurement.

Stability: The scale makes this board tremendous steady beneath foot. that longer nostril and rocker zone is the one spot you’ll discover some chatter and flap. It doesn’t resonate again beneath foot. In rutted out terrain the board will get bounced round as a result of its measurement however doesn’t wash out.

Ollies/Pop: This board has reasonable snap to it. You do must aggressively load it up and even then it’s all rider dependent. However take a look at the dimensions of this factor, it’s not designed to ship it into the air with ease, it’s alleged to fly off cliffs and drops.

Butterability: No.

Carving: Right here’s the place this board shines, you’ll be able to rip turns with it. These lengthy swoopy carves that take you from one facet of the run to the opposite simply allow you to glide from one facet of the path to the opposite. The sting to edge transmission is strong and this board does have plenty of drive out of the camber zone, however you don’t must aggressively load it up.

Rider in Thoughts: Somebody that wishes to show and slash some pow.

Private Ideas: I swear this factor is only a reshaped Jones Lone Wolf. However that doesn’t actually matter as a result of even for being a 174 it rode smaller. This board was optimum for broad open pow and simply doing slashy turns in deep snow. On a groomer it carved nicely and actually allow you to finesse your turns.
