Default FS: Elan Answer 158 ($100)

I have an in excellent condition Elan Answer 158. This is an all mountain destroyer, puts my Burton Aftermath to shame. Holds an edge like no other board I own. This is Elan's top of the line build, it reminds me of a slightly more playful Custom X. Similar geometry too, 158 length, 25.0 waist width and a tight side cut (7.9 radius). All around a super board. One little chip near back tail from storing it. Great board sells for $600 new. PM for more photos.

FEATURES AND TECHNOLOGIES
Base Warp 8
Core Control Plus
Mounting Boomer Stance
Reinforcement G60, Carbon-Kevlar 90 Beam
Sidewall V2R, Slanted
Manufacturer's description
MANUFACTURER'S DESCRIPTION
Whether your chucking off of cornices in the Alps, blasting out of the Mammoth pipe, or locking into lipslides on the streets of SLC the Answer is designed to take on every freestyle situation. With a new twin tip shape, aggressive profile and the combination of our Control Plus wood core, V2R sidewalls and Warp 8 base the Answer is dominant in the park, on the mountain, and in the streets. Mount up the Neon binding for perfect performance. When you need one board to handle it all, while keeping a freestyle perspective, you need the Answer.
