This board is a purpose built Downhill board that can dabble in a bit of free riding. The drop through design and Randal trucks with black bushings give it a stable ride at speed. Loosen it up and you can dabble in a little free riding. Stiff flex adds to stability at speeds. It is not meant to be a commuter board, but I've found that its weight and low ride helps me push easily, and the momentum from the weight means I am pushing less.
Flatter concave and slight rocker means your feet fit nicely and grip onto the surface of the board. Generous width means even larger riders will be satisfied.
The looks are great too. The top uses a special texalium (sp*) fiberglass and is a aluminum weeve.
Over all this is a great DH board for anyone. Although it is pricey, a purpose built Downhill board will cost roughly around the same price after you outfit it with the correct accessories.
I received this board from NS's VP of Sales and Marketing, and I've been using it for 6 months now and it is still my favorite Drop through DH board to date.
You won't regret it!
