Default Capita indoor FK or Arbor Westmark??

ok, ive ridden a 2010 indoor FK since new and absolutly love it for everything!! id planned on gettin the 2013 model soon, but for a few years now theres been something about arbor that ive wanted to try. the westmark seems like it would be the closest to the indoor, what would u do stick with the indoor or try the westmark?? im about 70/30 mtn/park riding.....if money wasnt an option id have a new ultrafear for my park days and no worries!!! haha

I've ridden both- the Indoor more than the Westmark. Can't say what's better but demo the Westmark if you can. I'm pretty sure you will really like it. It has a similar flex to the Indoor but the full/continuous rocker and edge grip tech make it really stand out. It's beefed up a bit to take a beating in the park and you can feel that. The Coda has a more responsive feel IMO.

Yeah if youre not riding park that much youre better off with a Coda. Than either the Indoor or the Westmark.

Nope, Coda is full on rocker. I have one right here, waiting to take it out for a spin. Arbor offers a few of their models with positive camber like the Element CX. But not the Coda.

70/30 mountain?

Coda.

It was surprisingly soft for such a fast and responsive deck. I'm a big fan of Arbor now. I rode a 153 which is on the long end for me and I had no trouble handling it.

It's directional flex but the inserts are centered. It's a great deck.

It's a little harder riding flats. But flats are the last place I look for performance. It's full rocker so of course it will feel like a tiny bit of teeter totter.

Just need to keep it on a slight edge and adjust. Stay away from the flats.
