Default Gnu Chb Mtx

Does anyone own this board/comment on how it rides? Paired with Rome 390's. Could not find one review on this board at all!

Thanks!!

I have that same configuration. I find it rides really well, but the mtx is maybe a bit overrated. Early on in the season I was riding a lot of east coast US ice and it certainly helped. At times I had trouble keeping my edge, but that may come down to my poor technique more than anything else. I can't really give a lot of technical reasons as to why it's better, but it's the first board I've owned and I'm loving it. Oh, and the neon/black bindings look so good on the board.

I think this would be a killer combo. The CHB is a very good board for the price, and Rome bindings are the best around IMO. The moderate flex of the 390 will complement the CHB well.

I ride a TRS MTX with Burton Missions on the east coast, and I trade boards with my friends some times so I have a basis for comparison. MTX is definitely worth it. If you use decent/good technique and trust your edge it will make a huge difference, especially at steeper angles with higher speeds. Don't get me wrong, it wont let you carve on straight up slick ice, but on icy/thin hardpack conditons you'll be blowing by most people and carving like you never have before.
