bunky 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.

Altephor East Coast... CT and MA mostly. Moving to Boston soon so Wachusett looks to be my new home mountain.

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.

bluetroll i'm 175 and i've ridden a 155cm. that is the size I would get it in.

LittleJP Well, I'm 5'7 and 135 lbs, and I ride a 151, might give you acomparison.

Cool_As_Cakes I'd go with the 155 0r 158

I was also looking at the never summer line up and wanted to see how you chose between the SL-R and the Evo-R?
To be honest, if I found an Evo-R or an SL-R for a good price I would grab them. I figured that the Evo is really more for park and I don't ride much park, yet. Since I mostly freeride with just a tiny, tiny bit of park, the SL-R seemed the better choice.
