Default Bataleon Airobic vs. Evil Twin

Height: 6'7"
Weight: 170lbs
boot: 10
Skil: Beginner/low intermediate

I ride mostly all-mountain, but nothing crazy fast or wild, just like to carve. I want to end the runs in the park and do it all over again. My first thought is the 155 ET, but I'm also thinking that the Air will be more forgiving and allow me to learn/adjust quicker to butters, jibs, and kickers.

I like to take it easy so I already ruled out the Riot. So my thinking is that the 155 Airobic will give me the confidence and room for error to dial in my skills. Once I've "maxed out" the Airobic I could move on to ET or Riot.

BUT, if you all think the ET is forgiving enough for a newer rider (~2 seasons) I'm down with that. That's really the one I want so I can maybe grow into it over the next 2-4 seasons. I just don't know if it will be too stiff to learn to ollie, jib, press, etc.

What do you guys think? Would the ET fit this bill: Freeride/freestyle/park (50/30/20)?

Thanks for the quick reply. Why for sure, I'm thinking room to grow. I'm 80% on the ET.

I'll be moving to CS next summer (Air Force). Can't wait.

TBT gives you enough error room alone. Get something that will last you longer and will be more responsive on jumps and over the rest of the mountain.

Of the 2 you mentioned, defintely the ET. However, I think you'll be best suited by the Goliath.
