This is not really a review, but some opinions
I am 6´1 , 95 kg and 10 to 10.5 shoe
I already had some boards... Salomon ace, k2 access, lib tech dark series MTX , lib tech dark series BTX C2 , Bataleon the jam , gnu altered genetics, palmer honeycomb, burton malolo, NS SL and burton NUG
Most are gone and now i have the JAM, NUG and SL.
I was riding the dark series , but i didnt like it very much... dont know why. sold it.
I tried the bataleon and i LOVED IT.... Super surfy, dont catch edge, super super fast and super un to ride.
just not easy to press or do tricks...
So i went to TIGNES and caught really great weather
took que SL to try...
The jam is 161 and the SL 158.
I as afraid i was going to have to get used to it... afraid of catching edges...
NOT REALLY. It felt like the jam but better!!!!
More damp, but not to much. More flexible. More fun to ride, easier to do tricks and manouver all round. The base is at least as fast as the jam and no edges caught!!!
the 158 was super stable for me. And the best is that i have the same "surf" feeling as the jam but with much better edge hold
I am pretty happy and i am keeping the SL 158 and getting a cobra 161 too.
Tha jam will go, and maybe i try the goliath in the future as the jam is a more super charge board.
Next week i will try the NUG with malavitas.
P.S. - i was using the prophecy bindings
How will next year RIDE MACHETE GT hold?? looks prety sick!!!
P.P.S - the topsheet o the SL is pretty tough
