Default How soft is the Evo-R?

I'm looking for a soft, playful board that I can take almost anywhere. The Evo-R is one of my choices. I was wondering if someone on this forum could post a carpet surfing Youtube video demonstrating the Evo's flex. Please also post your weight and board size so I can guage.

Thanks!

If you weigh 130, sure it can be an all mountain board. If you weigh 190, not so much.

I weigh 190 and take my 158 Evo all over the mountain. It's gotten to the point that I ride that board 90% of the time and I'm only about a 20% park rider. It's just a lot of fun!

If you're looking for a soft, playful board you can take anywhere, the Evo should certainly be near the top of your list. For my riding style, I would've been better suited with the SL, but my Evo was a hardly used demo that I picked up for $250, so I couldn't pass that up.

Completely agree I'm actually riding last years sl for the past week and I like the Evo way better.

this is exactly the info i was looking for

Im 130 lbs...so "park flex" doesn't really pertain to me. If i ride a 151...do you think i can cruise big mountain with it?...or should i upsize to a 153? How does it compare to a Coda (im assuming coda is a tad bit stiffer and damp?)
