Hello all, new here. I'm in the mood for new equipment and am looking for some input.
wide 161cm Ride Fleetwood, five years old.
42 year-old dad style (heavy powder, groomers, and trees but no terrain park).
Intermediate, can ride blacks but enjoy blues more, 5 years experience, 25-30 days per year riding.
42, not fat, fit, strong but not too flexible any more
Mt. Bachelor, Central Oregon, Pacific Northwest.
I spotted a K2 Zeppelin 161cm at the great price of $255. My budget is higher but you know how hard it is passing up a good deal.
My questions are:
- How will the K2 ride compared to the Fleetwood I currently have?
- Will the K2 fit my profile?
- The advertisement for the K2 does not specify it as a wide board, so is it wide enough? IIRC, my bindings are set at +15 deg. and 0 deg.
- Are there any other boards you think would be a better choice, taking into consideration price?
