I'm curious what made you decide on the SL. I remember your first post saying you were primarily freeride. I know the SL is all-mountain, but doesn't it lend itself more towards the freestyle side of all-mountain. In asking this, I'm not questioning your decision so much as playing devil's advocate. I truly am curious, as I've considered the SL as well.
Fair question! See the email below from Tony who responded back to me from Never Summer.
