This board has brought my riding to a whole new level. I have hit speeds that I never thought were possible and this thing handles like a dream. The board is absolutely bomb proof, you can straight line the steepest lines you can find and it plows through everything. It is definitely a board for an advanced rider. My home mountain is Big Sky and almost all of the locals ride never summers because of the 3 year warranty and they are impossible to break. Once you go never summer, you will NEVER go back.
I ride the Summit in a 172, this board loves to be taken steep and deep. It is by far the greatest powder board I have ever ridden. You can charge any chute at mach speeds with this baby. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a powder only board.
These bindings are ok. They get the job done for lower mountain riding. But if you want to go big and charge the steeps as hard as you can, these get a little flimsy and less responsive at top speed. Overall, had I known what i know now, I would have purchased a stiffer binding.
