overall very good
Very good, very stiff, but you MUST take time to set it up properly. Once they are set in you WILL feel the difference, and keep at it until the board is behaving the way you want. Unfortunately, you MUST do that at home because it is pretty impossible to do this on the slopes, unless you want to waste half a day or so. Major drawback: the binding-to-board screws are pretty weak and tend to sheer off easily (both head and body, but maybe I am unlucky). Also, if you ride slopes a lot and take lifts a lot, your carbon back will take a hammering when you go queuing or against any division put in place to segregate the riders onto chairs, and that does my head in. Overall, the carbon looks good, but I have heard many people saying that in extreme cold it tends to split, hasn't happened to me. A last worry, more often than not you will go to extreme "yoga like" position to get into your bindings, which can be annoying (freeride or backcountry). But for sure when it is dialed-in you forget about it and you grin all the way down baby!
