There are two things its not great for, still good btu not great. Riding at high speeds on hard pack and deep pow. Because of the banana tech and buttery flexibility it is not as stiff as all mountain boards and there can feel a little loose under your feet at extremely high speeds. Not a problem though because you will get used to it and the magnetraction on next years model will take care of most of that problem. Because it is a smaller board with an equal stance setback on either side it wont feel like a surf board in powder. Not a big deal though, any experienced rider will have no problem. Sick board and the one of the only ones i would pay full price.
