I ordered this board a few weeks ago and my local hill opened up and i got a few hours to try it out. First thing i want to say is the flex is not a 1 its more like a 4 which was what i was expecting. i got the 139 and im 5"2 and 107lbs so a bit long for park riding but i have time to grow into it. This board defiantly feels more durable then most youth boards ive ridden, and salomon backs it with a 2 year warranty. The rocker is rocker in between the feet and basically flat between the inserts. makes it easy to lock into those presses. The e3 sidecut is weird to look at but it makes the board really stable and provides good edge hold. the other thing ive noticed is if you land 270 (or 90) and a jump/rail your edge doesnt catch as easy. so you don't eat shit and scorpion.the graphics look amazing in person! The one thing that it could use is a tad bit more pop but it has enough to get you over whatever you need to get over and nothing more. i think it would be sick if Salomon put the rubber pads in the youth model... but what can you do its a kids board. The abs gets the job done.
I love this board ive ridden burton, never summer, and capita and this is by far my favorite! I would recommend this to the kid who laps the park all day and occasionally cruises around the mountain. you can really do anything on this board, but it is more park oriented.
Thanks Salomon! for a quality kids board.
