Hey lonerider how about the SL for my needs, how do you like it? for the most part thats what i do as i go down the mountain. but still i don't plan on doing any park, apart from the occasional small jumps and such (no tricks, just up and over (i get some air though))
SL would be a good choice as well. While I mostly ride it on groomers (as seen above), I also do decently big jumps
and some basic jibbing with it
. It is very similar in general stiffness and dampness to the Cobra. As I mentioned, I wished it was a hair stiffer between the bindings (which both the Cobra and the Heritage are) for freeriding on slopes.
I think the directional shape of the Cobra will make it better for riding in powder (that's the main reason I suggested the Cobra instead of the SL or Heritage).
