Looking for all mountain board trees/bumps/groomed/pow
 
I currently have a 2013 smokin superpark wide 159. Love this board and it def does everything well but somedays I don't ride park and just bomb sh!t and will see groomed, ice, pow, bumped, trees. I think at super High speeds the board isn't as stable and I'm trying to find something new....... Any help is appreciated

I have a Nidecker Ultralight and I absolutely love it. It kicks ass in all the scenarios you described. It's crazy light and super fast, it takes off as soon as you point it down the fall line. It's not cheap, $799.00. A less expensive alternate could be a NS Raptor or Jones Flagship. Both excellent boards. Good luck

Does the flagship do well on groomed variable icy conditions or is it ment more for pow? I'm on the icy east coast btw

My Ultralight has Ultimate Grip edges which work well in icy conditions. The Flagship has their own edge technology called Magne Traction. I have no personal experience with it but I've always read how versatile it is. From powder to groomers to ice it does it all.

The Flagship is stiff, it has camber, and magne. It'll grip anything.

Nideckers serrated edge is complete marketing bullshit. It does nothing and makes tuning a nightmare.

After further research it seems the Jones flagship is for charging big back country lines not east coast riding.........search still going lol......

The Bataleon Undisputed.
I have demo'd the Omni and it was a solid board. The Undisputed is even stiffer and more aggressive. I would buy one if I didn't already have a Pantera (which is another option to consider).

I need a wide board, that undisputed sounds right up my alley though......
