Im looking to upgrade my board this summer. The one I have, has served me great for the past 4 years, but now its time for a change. There are so many boards out on the market, and Ive gone crazy the past couple of days.
I prefer to ride powder, but also like to charge down fast on hardpack. So i really want a board that goes fast and has great edge control. I've ridden 90+km/h.
So far Ive looked at Rossignols XV, Krypto, Ride highlife (i do not like the missing magne traction), Jones Flagsip, and maybe some other models, but i cant think of any right now.
Feel free to suggest any board/brad (Libtech maybe).
And I forgot, Im a tall guy, 6'4" with 190lbs. So im looking for something longer. In the range of 163-170. (but first lets find a board, and we will talk about size later)
Oh and this, I have not ridden a board with magne traction, but from reading it makes a lot of difference on hardpack and ice. Any thoughts on that?
