I'm 6'4", 215 lbs. Intermediate rider,...
I'm 6'4", 215 lbs. Intermediate rider, want this for primarily lift-riding in WA (some powder, but not usually a ton). Less park, more speed/all mountain. Is the 164.5 gonna work for me, or is it too small for my size?
Sizing is always tough - for your description I would recommend a bit longer board. I am 6'2" 180 and prefer a 168 for all mountain + powder (primarily OR/WA), but we all ride differently.
Thanks for the reply. I read somewhere that this board rides a lot bigger than it is. I guess I mostly end up on groomers and some icy stuff (have a seasons pass to Snoqualmie because I live so close). My current board is a 165 (first board I bought used from a friend about 13 years ago). I've been riding a lot lately so wanted to test out the new technology. All the cool boards I've seen don't come big (e.g. burton custom X, this one). I'm hoping this one "rides bigger". If I start doing a lot of powder maybe I'll get a 170+ powder board for that purposes and this will be my all-rounder. I almost went with the custom flying V, but I read it sucks on ice, which I do see a decent amount where I ride.
Mine just arrived...it does look kind of small...and I just read about how cool the Skunk Ape board is as well. Maybe I should get 169+ in that board instead. The Skunk ape looks slightly wider too, probably better for my size 13 boot. Can't decide.
Note this TR board weighs about 6.7-8 pounds in the 164.5.
take a look at the specs of the T Rice 164.5 and the skunk ape 169. The specs are identical (running length, tip/tail width, etc). The only difference is the skunk ape is 0.5 cm wider in waist width. Personally I'd go for a shorter board that runs long. Best of both worlds for pow and non-pow days.
I was wondering what is different about...
I was wondering what is different about this C2BTX HP board from the C2BTX non HP board? Trying to decide which one will be the best choice for me...I usually go with the top of the line in whatever I'm buying but I thought I'd ask and see what information I could come up with first...thanks in advance...:-)
Difference is weight of the board, the HP is a tad lighter and it uses all basalt glass, no fiberglass at all.
Pretty sweet for a free warranty replacement!!
Just got this in the mail a few days ago as a warranty replacement for last years model that delaminated (most likely due to 120 days of east coast abuse). Its looking pretty sweet! I'm a fan of the sparkly top sheet and the graphic is literally stellar. I've played around with it on the carpet, and this board seems to be perrrrrrfect. A bunch of pop, and it might even feel just ever so slightly more flexible than last years model, which is a plus in my book. I was riding it (last year) with some 07 CO2s but I'm gonna pop some red '12 Burton Prophecy bindings on this board. Its gonna be an absolute beast. If it rides anything like last years model, with the addition of some slightly softer bindings, this board will be flying over 50ft step ups in no time!! And you all know that the extra moolah dropped on this ride will give you extra karma float on powder days right?
just wondering why this board is $160 more...
just wondering why this board is $160 more than the regular T. Rice. The only differance I can see is the HP in the name but Im not sure what that means.
FYI: HP = Horsepower
According to Lib Tech it's supposed to increase speed
its lighter and more poppy annnddd more friendly to the earth, which is always a plus
