|Triple8Sol||Definitely need the Roundhouse. Element is probably only good for up to a size 10 or something|

|KC10Chief||I finally had a chance to go out and ride my Arbor Roundhouse CX. This board is so damn beautiful, I was afraid to go ride it! It's like a work of art. Still, I went to ride and it's a very nice ride! It is MUCH more stable at speed than my flat Solomon. I'm no expert snowboarder. It seems harder to turn at slow speeds. I'm sure it's just an issue with me getting used to the board. But at higher speeds, this thing is very easy to turn and carve with. It's a great board. My old board, was pretty sketchy at speed. It slowed me down quite a bit. I'm going to Alyeska ski resort this weekend and am staying for four days. I'll report back with more info. But so far, I feel a LOT more confident with my Roundhouse.|

Yeah now that you put things in perspective, the roundhouse will do fine. The A-Frame is another killer board from Arbor you may dig.

How do you live in AK and rarely ride powder?!
But yeah, if you just like speed, stability, epic carves and more - go with the CX.
But honestly, there are A LOT better boards than the roundhouse for doing what you want to do. I see the roundhouse as more of a powder/backcountry type board (rx obviously)
The CX seems like it would just get boring after a while. Do you do any side hits, or jumps? Do you want something more playful you can mess around with more? Or do you strictly just carve up the mountain and spit it out?

Do you ride any powder?
Or do you just like to ride and carve up the groomed runs?

|KC10Chief||Thanks for the advice! I kind of figured I'd need the Roundhouse. I'm leaning towards the 162cm since I'm about 6'1" and 220 pounds. Other than my weight, I'm pretty easy on my board. I don't ride park at all. No rails. I just ride groomers mostly. I just want something that handles well and is going to be an all around fun ride. Currently, I ride a cheap, Salomon Ace board. It's a flat board, 163cm in length. It's wide too. I have DC Judge boots and Burton Mission bindings. I just need to update my board now. Do you think I'll notice a difference in going to the Arbor Roundhouse RX? For the type of riding I do, would I be better off with the positive camber CX version?|

Size 12 = Roundhouse.
I rode the element with 11's and was hanging off pretty badly...With 12's I doubt you could lay down a carve...
