NICE! Something about those Euro boards!
I took out my K-Ride 1st time this week and it was a thrill (been on my T-Rice past 3-4 weeks). Took a run to get it dialled, but once in... it's lock and load trail ripping!
The hardest thing was getting used to the stance & set-back when popping off the shorter tail vs the T-Rice. But that got better by days end.
Can't wait to read the full review on the board.

& ya they are both brand spankin' new, not unscratched unfortunately.
The bases are mint, just not the top sheet.
Only mine has ever been ridden, 2wice by me. The other is still a virgin

It doesn't really seem that much stiffer lengthwise, but try & twist it, ha ha, good luck with that one.
I'm keepin' this one, Palmer Snowobard, it's one year older than the other one I have.
But come on, its got fuckin' flames on it, this ones obviously the fastest.
I think the specs are the same? not positive, but they look identical.

Even in 2003 they were trying to figure out what it was!!! I'm not sure I believe the idea that an unused board is going to signifigantly "break down" over time so if you have one of these brand new it'd probably be a pretty good ride.
Any idea what the weight is on it? Might also help to get some more measurements on it. Actual length, nose waist and tail width, effective edge, etc.
They call it a BX board in that thread but it's shape looks more like a traditional board. Guess they went to the more squared off shape for BX after the Titanium was made?

It'd be pretty big for him, but given what I've read, I don't think he'd have a problem with it. Really, only he could tell us.
It's a Palmer Chanel Titanium 164, it's a Ferrari.
I got 2 @ my house right now, I'm keepin' 1 FOR SURE.
I've been ridin' for 25 years & this is like no other board I've ridden.
It may not have as many shiny fancy sequins as pout's fancypantser, but it ain't far behind.
I believe it's a wolf in sheep's clothing? It was either made @ one of those high end places, or when they stopped making it, it became one of those high end boards, just branded with a different name?
There just isn't a lot of info out there on this board
Even less on the one I'm keepin', it's the fastest one, it has flames!!!

Also there's a guy that has a couple for sale used/new not used on another forum, I could send you his contact info. I think he's in the Western states somewhere...
From what I've seen, most intense competitors use Oxess or Kessler BX boards which are even more expensive.
Kessler Ski & Snowboards <-those are $1500 CAD or so in Canada, not sure if they have a US distributor anymore.
Snowboardcross <- those are 1600 EURO plus shipping!
I got my Avalanche FLP AFT for $1085 CAD with shipping, plus tax and duty here in Canada, so it came out to about $1240 or so... I think it would make a decent BX board, but it's made with more carbon fibre and kevlar, where the Kesslers and Oxess boards have a metal layer in them methinks. Some say it's better, but others have had delamination and bending issues with the titanal boards.
Another option might be to buy a used BX board from a competitor? Snowboard Canada sells their used boards in the spring, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the US teams do the same thing.

Any links to manufacturer, where to buy, price?
Looking for a competition board for my sons BX races.
