Ride Concept TMS or Yukon
Florida based rider looking for some info. I get out west about 3 trips a year(15-20 days or riding total). I currently have a Timeless 159, going on 7 years old, its time for something new. Not many dealers here in FL where you can go look at a variety of good Snowboard equipment. I dont ride nearly as much as you guys that live out there, but I like having my own equipment that I am familar with.
I am 6'2" and weigh 190. Size 11 Boot. (Ride Crew BOA <--- Picked em up after the season last year, needed new ones, going to keep these) I know the 159 is probably a little on the smallish side, but I got it for a great deal way back when. I would consider myself intermediate to maybe slightly advanced. I am interested in an all mountain board. I ride mostly freeride terrain, but will spend a couple days or afternoons in the park each trip.
I dont keep up with Snowboard equipment like I do wakeboard stuff, but as I understand it the Concept TMS replaced the Timeless with a few upgrades thrown in?? I was going to go with either the SPi or NRc Bindings from Ride.
Would the Concept TMS 161 or 164 with SPi or NRc's be a decent setup?? Would I need to step up to the wider Yukon to prevent toe drag with the size 11 Boots?? Looking for feedback or possibly someone who has riden any of this stuff, like I said no where local here to check it out. Coming from a wakeboard background, I like a board that is responsive, will I lose any of that going to the Yukon??
Also..... anyone else wanna throw out some other combos or setups based on the info I have given, feel free. By no means do I have to have to Ride stuff, its just the only thing I have had.
Thanks in advance for any help
