Thanks man. I really appreciate is. Riding a Mountain twin 157 right now. It's super fun but need something bigger for JFT.

TyBardy after long deliberation i had my board purchase narrowed down to Jones Flagship, YES Asym, Ride Highlife, or Never Sumer Cobra - Than this stepped in and I think this is the one. I think I am going to scoop up a 160 Aviator. Seems like a lot of fun!

binarypie Added a couple more days on the board. Conclusion is basically the same. Except I would call this a directional freestyle board at this point. In a longer length it could probably do well as an all-mtn board. However, at 152 it is too short and too soft for me. My Flagship 158 does a better job freeriding.

The main color is size related (blue is 152) but the base colors invert as jones likes to waste as little material as possible. So you may get one with a blue base and black logo or a black base with a blue logo.

binarypie Updated with my day at Steven's Pass.

It has completely changed my view of this board.

The Aviator is not an "easy" board to ride by any means. I think it is really geared towards your freerider types who are looking for something maybe a little softer.

I have not ridden the Slash ATV but it was my second choice to the Aviator.
