Default Madd 168 BX CB

This is a review on the Madd 168 BX (Boardercross) CB (carbon butterfly construction). If you're into speed and railing turns this is what you want to be on. First the specs...

Length - 168
Edge contact - 138 (that's right)
Sidecut radius - 9.2
Nose width - 29.2
Waist width - 24
Tail width - 29.2

This board has a blunted nose and tail which gives it a longer edge contact for it's length. The carbon butterfly construction gives it more stiffness in the waist of the board while leaving the tip and tail softer. It also helps dampen the board in crud and ice. Because the waist is so narrow you need to be able to ride steeper, forward angles. I rode it 36 front / 24 rear to cut down over hang. The inserts seem to be placed pretty far back so I pushed my front binding as far forward as it would go and moved my back foot one off from the furthest set of holes in the back. This board eats up crud and ice and makes groomers run screaming. Not my first choice for powder, but I got into some knee deep stuff and for it's narrow waist it did alright. Not a board you want in the park for rails, but I took it over a few kickers and what can I say? It's a 168 directional board, you better go straight. For the rider that spends 80% freeriding hardpack and 20% in the park (or less) this is what you want to be on.
