First impression :
coming from a 2006 atomic radon, this board is way lighter, and since it should be the same as 2011 hopefully this review will help somebody
since it was a perfect pow day, i did not really use it much on the groomers, but i have to say it is a lot different from my old atomic radon camber board.
Atomic radon was really a tank- in terms of speed, dampness and stiffness.
Premier feels a lot different and as if it is really soft-but that is really not the case once you start to do turns and dig those edges in...
excellent feel in the turns and it just feels more alive than the radon plank
it think i need to get used to rc more, because it gives me the feeling of instability when going fast-but that is just the feeling of rc.
In truth it really is damp and stable as hell...did not test it on ice-since there was none :-)
no need to write a lot here, maybe one word...excellent
and i am a big guy (about 260ish) and premier is 165 because we dont have a lot of pow days so i wanted it to be a little more nimble for every day use and trees.
had no problems in 60cm of fresh dry pow.
same day i rode burton malolo 166 and i have to say it was just as good malolo in pow, but better on groomers.
No park 4 me :-)
love it :-)
i think that rc gets some time to get used to, especially on groomers.
different feeling at first-almost unstable, for me it was somewhat scary, but once you start carving and riding it hard, you realize it is great.
in pow no getting uset to is necessary because it rocks and it really made my day and saved my legs.
