Lando's shred-sled of choice for lines, windlips, and mega-booters.
- C2 Power Banana/Camber Combo uses rocker between your feet and camber zones extending to the contact points for maximum pop and stability
- Basalt rock fiber/fiberglass combo laminate adds pop while reducing weight and manufacturing toxins
- 3D Bamboo Org Throttle risers use perpendicular wood grains for efficient power transfer to your edges and ninja precision through turns
- Magne-Traction serrated edges add contact points to improve grip and control in all snow conditions
- Sustainable castor beans-based topsheet is both tough and good for the environment—they're called 'the magical fruit' for a reason

Worth the money!
Boot- 11.5, weight 205, height 6'2". I ride hard, all mountain. Love glades, steep groomers, and pow days. Coming off a lib trs 167 and a t.rice 164.5, I was skeptical to go down to the Lando 160. I was not disappointed!
The phoneix is rated as a 6.5 flex with the TRS and T.Rice being a 7. Holding the board and flex testing it, I would agree. Riding the Lando however, I would rate it an 8. The bamboo risers must have something to do with it- they're wide and cover the whole stance area for each foot. This does not make this board flexible when riding, but makes it extremely aggressive for riding fast. The construction enables it to blast through chop, slop and chowder (moguled up pow). With the set back stance of about 1", it easily surfed through knee deep pow. First time I felt that I could enjoy pow days with shorter board. The set back stance also really helps with carving hard. The lando is very fast edge to edge and does not chatter or wash out. The only down side (if this is a downside) is that it's too easy to do really hard, deep heelside carves, and with the narrower waist than a T.Rice or TRS, I found that I was dragging heel cups/heel of boot often. It's only a few mm narrower than the 164.5 T.Rice but it's noticeable for size 11.5 boot. This doesn't detract from the board, just have to be aware when laying ruts.
There's also a lot of snap with the board- moreso than the T.Rice and TRS. The Lando really transfers foot energy to board energy and really ollies easily and high. Great on booters of medium-large size. The base is very durable- I have hit many a rock and tree stump without any scratches or dents. I find the TNT bases to be equally fast to the sintered bases- just requires a good wax with Bluebird! On flat cross cuts (my judge of base quality and wax)- the lando flew by everyone.
This board is fantastic for a hard charging advanced rider. I would not recommend to an entry level/intermediate rider.
Fun Carving Board
I really like the way this board can carve groomers, the rocker between the feet allowed for easy turn initiation and the magne-traction locked in turns without being to grippy. The board was very stiff to me, but I enjoy it because it can cut through chop and is very damp. Even though the base is extruded it is still pretty fast, way better than the extruded on my park board. The one complaint I have with the board is that the board is unstable at times while flat basing, and the board is harder to turn at slower speeds. That would not normally be that big of a problem but my home resort has a lot of cat tracks and some flat areas. Could just be me though, and other than that the board is great.
