07 k2 jibpan-freestyle or allmountain???

I was thinking of getting an 07 jibpan as my strict freestyle board but I've been reading mixed reviews all over...is this meant to be a freestyle or allmountain board?? I'm looking for the board to have good flex

It's a pretty stiff board. I'd suggest the Darkstat, it's the same shape and construction just a little softer.

What does that mean?



The Jibpan is pretty stiff. It's meant for jumps, kickers and side hits more than jibs. I ride my 08 Jibpan all mountain and in the park. Heelside chatter when you get reallll fast, but that may just be due to the bevel and my FLAD settings, and it's the Titanic in pow (I ride centered). Perhaps setback can remedy this, but seriously why would you on this deck.... You can definitely charge most blues and greens easy. But it's definitely at home in the park. Real stable off landings. Idunno if the 07 model has this but the 08 has "S-Class" dampening, which is essentially Harshmellow before the trademark.

It's a high-end, poppy freestyle deck that CAN be taken all-mountain.
