Can the proto still handle pow nd cliff drops( nothing big, like 5-8 ft). Also how does it jib compared to the evo
I'm confident it can handle pow. The foot we got here the other week rode beautifully with the Proto.
As for cliff dropping, 5-8 is no biggy. I'm sure it can handle it fine. Go bigger and I'd want something stiffer under my feet. I did some in Tahoe on my mid-stiff Turbo Dream (same as you, 5-8ft) and it was smooth as a baby elephant's bottom. Well, my TD does have harsmellow though
Keep in mind, Travis Rice goes friggen huge on this board off of cliffs. On the Never Summer side, I'm inclined to think the Raptor or even Heritage is better suited to that type of big mountain riding.
thnx for reply Leo. Is the Proto more comparable to GNU Riders Choice then? If so, does it have similar ice edge hold would you say...
I dont know if it has simular.(havent tried mag) But Vario grip HOLDS through it all pretty damn good. The other day everything was ice, it was like concrete. The Vario grip held like a mofo. I didnt have a single prob with it during that sesh.
From someone whoes used to ridding ice, vario holds amazingly.
