Just to start, i'm 5'10 170lbs, got the 158 '09 SLR last year.
It really depends on your riding style for freeride, i think the 158 is perfect. stable, fast and floats in powder when you need it.
In hind sight, i probably would have gotten the evo-r 155, but thats just because i've moved more into freestyle from freeride. i really want a twin now.
anyways either size is fine. for me, i think the 155 is the best, you can do butters and small spins. makes the board a little more fun.

|pmoa||I am pretty much the same size and I ride mostly in PA and west virginia and I got an evo in a 155 and freeriding has been great...But I prefer a smaller boarder and eventually I want to be hittin the park...the evo will sometimes initiate a turn without me even trying but it holds an edge even on ice...All preference IMO|

|arsenic0||At 170 I'd say 155 min for either board at your size. Since you said more freeride and jumps I'd say 158.|

|LittleJP||Where are you riding?|

|Altephor||Just out of curiosity, would you recommend the same size (155) if I were to go with the Evo? Or would you say 153 for the Evo since it's more of a park board.|
