Just wanted to add a note about speed. When absolutely blasting down a groomed run with fairly heavy powder (20cm) you can feel the softish flex and you definitely need to stay focused and with a good solid low stance.

Compared to my stiffer freeride oriented decks this does have a lower speed limit. You can still go very fast, as fast as I would need to, but you can feel its not that stable beyond a certain speed. Of course thats to be expected for this type of board and it also depends on weight. If I were on a 160 I'm sure it would be much more stable at very high speeds.

Don't get me wrong this board can go very very fast, but its not going to be quite as stable as say my old ride highlife was at speed.

Still overall I think this board has a huge range of things it does well and is very versatile and fun.
