This board is AMAZING. I have used it on crusty snow, slushy snow, packed powder, deep fluffy powder, etc. It excels in all conditions. The reverse camber plus amptek is an amazing combination. Great in powder, stable on groomers or hardpack, absolutely blasts thru crud, which on Mt Hood happens pretty early in the day. I have two other boards...a Burton Malolo with Cartel EST bindings, and a GNU Altered Genetics with Union Force bindings. My favorite snowboard is the Rossignol Angus (162MW). My favorite thing about it (aside from the sick graphics by Alex Pardee) is the consistency and smoothness of turn initiation on it -- smooth, deliberate and predictably precise. I love this board. Rossignol nailed the recipe on this one!
PS, Backcountry is equally superb -- great customer service, product selection and super speedy shipping. It's easy to tell they are trying to be the best and do things differently.
Awesome boot. I usually wear a size 10.5 street shoe, and size 9.5 ski boot and size 10 snowboard boot. I bought these in 11s...they run small. Best ankle hold/grip of any boot i've tried. total ankle grip without any pinching. lots of volume in the forefoot (maybe too much...and i have wide foot). Just stiff enough without being too stiff. Dual boa system is magic. works like a charm.
Tried on many different brands, and these were perfect from get-go. Right degree of stiffness, good lock/grip on heel (no slipping), comfortable, dual boa system for right amount of customizing fit, and very cool looking. They do run small though so go half to a full size larger than normal.
I am beginner/intermediate; am 6'1" and 170lbs. What length should i get?
