I have to say that it is not as stiff as my Ride Yukon, but the Stick out performs most every board my friends have in handling and forgiveness. It pops up to keep you ontop of the pow and handles anything I can throw at it. I have a size 15 boot and use the 174 board. I am not buying anything from now on but NS boards.
This board is sick in the pow. I'm sorry to say its just ok on the groomers. Now back the to the powder, epic!!!!!!!!!!
I have been riding the new Legacy all season after upgrading from my 2006 model.
It is a very versatile board, I have been using it across the entire mountain, even in the park more than a few times.
It is still a very stiff board, and is more at home in the powder. Because of how stiff the board is I would also not recommend it to anyone worse than a solid intermediate rider. It would make a terrible board to learn on.
The R.C. Tech is super solid. It took a little getting used to, but t preforms as well or better than any cambered board, and much better than any true banana shape due to the increased stability of the cambered tip and tail. It floats really well in the soft stuff, but also cuts through ice and heavy wet snow.
I would recommend to anyone who is past the basics, who can take it where it belongs (blacks, double blacks, bc) and needs a super solid, snowboard.
I'm a snowboard teacher from Germany and I've ridden a lot of boards in the last 15 years, but this one is the best i've ever had!
I'm 185cm/80kg and ride a 163cm Board... It 's so great! Stable on high speed, cuts through ice like butter and floats like a boat in powder...I can carve with it like hell, it is very easy to handle in the powder an even through the woods it is easy to steer around the trees.
My Setup: Burton CO2 (2008), Burton Driver X (2008), rear binding (-10°), front binding (+18°), 58cm Stance.
This board is a real killer!
If you want a stick that's going to go the distance, this is it. I've been riding my Legacy since January '05 and it's still holding up. There is no chatter & this board is super responsive (even on ice), it destroys groomers, hardpack, and cuts through ice. Mine is a 163 - it absolutely slays the mountain on pow days. Plus it has sick polar bear graphics.
Stiffer than most, and on account of its extra width (that's what she said!) it's not built to ride park all day. I bought this board because I wear an 11 and my stance is 0/0. Everyone says you can reduce toe drag by adjusting stance, but dood, have you ever tried riding fakie with your feet pointing 15 degrees the wrong direction?
Also, I would not recommend this board for beginners.
Best board I've ever owned
The rocker is amazing in powder. You can ride much more as if you were on hard packed courderoy, without having to lean back as much. This board is PERFECT for those of us who have size 11 boots, who do not want a clunky wide board. This board is only a smidge wider than a regular size board, which provides a more responsive and lighter ride than a wide board. You can also ride these boards just a little shorter than a traditional board. I was riding a 162, and I've downsized to a 159. Never summer makes a great product.
Front and back of the board
(wish the bottom was a never summer classic neon green with a never summer logo (like on the SL last year)
Any thing you can do i can do better!
So far love this board. I have only riden park boards before and do notice how much stiffer it is. But this board is great for when you don't want to ride park all day and just want to stop by for a while. Great all around board from powder to park. It is definitely a general board though. If you are looking for a park board i would go with the Never summer revovler for you wider foot guys like me. You will notice the difference.
Those are the unions forces on the board btw
Is this the board for me?
I wear an 11-12...
Is this the board for me?
I wear an 11-12 size shoe depending on the brand. Would I want a wide board like the legacy? Are there also other boards I should be looking at that are all mountain boards that are wide? I just moved to Steamboat so i would like A board that can handle beginner back country and intermidate park riding (can handle switch 540's and reg 720's off mid-sized jumps, butters on boxes and boardslides and presses on hand rails)Is this the board for me?
Oh and this isn't really a question about the snowboard but... if this is the board for me, what kind of bindings would be good to go along with it?
Thanks for the help
Yeah this board should be just fine with your boot size. As for bindings, if you don't want to spend a lot I would check out the Union forces or if money isn't a big issue just about any pair of flux's would totally rock on this board
I think there are relatively few companies that make "wide" specific boards anymore. There's less of a market for them, and undesirable torsional flex is sometimes an issue. (But not with the Neversummer!)
this board should do everything you want it to do, I've had mine for about 5 years and everything you want to do with it, I've thrown at it. It's handled the steepest steeps at Jackson Hole, powder days in Park City, and icy garbage runs in Michigan.
As for bindings, I cracked my Drake supersports last year and replaced them with Burton Cartels. They're working out OK but I've only got like 3 days in them so not much advice there.
I've been riding for 15 yaers and never have I found a board that had this amount of control and floatyness. I weigh 240lbs. and have size 12 boots and this is the first board that I dont have any toe drag and I don't where out my back leg riding fluffy pow. I can almost lean forward even when riding pow. The best part is I have the 174 and it feals like a 160 under my feet control wise.
