What do you think?
Just the opposite. The portion of the board with no TBT is long while the TBT portion is narrower. The board is directional and stiffer. Those elements are designed in to promote quick edge to edge transitions, a stable platform underfoot, max lift to the potential ice catching contact points. As always, the correct design for your conditions and style will be the easiest to ride. The 158 will be an exceptional choice. You could bump up to the 161.
