NOT an all mountain board.
Some reviews and descriptions said its an all mountain, all conditions board, but I have to disagree. Its positive camber and lack of length get you lost in the powder and its flex gets you lost in the crud and ice. I would say its definitely more geared toward the park. Nice board though.
All mountain board
This board is termed as a "park board" but I'm more of an all-mountain rider who likes to seek tricks in the trees and backcountry. I've had this board for three years, it does great in trees, pow, and at high speeds. Know that it is more than a mere "park board."
DH in action
best board ever. period.
Have had two of these puppies and I'm about to buy my third. The reason i keep coming back to them is how much fun they make everything. park laps, cattie jumps, jibbing around the mountain or freeriding. And they pop is so sweet. makes straight airing jumps so much fun. buy it. just buy it.

is this board any good for all-mountain as well?
This is perfect for all mountain. You may also like a ride Society.
id go with the ride society if ur not going to be in the park much but if u are going to be in the park go with the DH for sure
this board is sweet for taking park to the rest of the mountain. hitting cat track jumps, butters, cliffs, it destroys it all. a real fun board if you're into that. but yea, the society would be a good way to go too.

Lets just say its amazing. best board i have ever riden.

All Around Park Deck
If you're a park junkie that occasionally find his/her way to other parts of the mountain the DH is a great board to check out. This board has about a 5 out of 10 overall flex, but stays snappy in the nose and tail with Carbon Array 3 strips that run from the binding inserts out to the contact points of the board.
You'll find the 85a Slimewalls come in handy for few reasons. First of all, they take a beating... so when you're hitting boxes, rails, tree stumps, etc.. you don't have to worry about cracking a sidewall. The slimewalls also flex more naturally with the rest of your board, so you have better feeling under foot. So setting up to spin on your heel or toe edge is much smoother because you have so much more feeling. Last, the naturally absorb vibration, so you'll find that a lot of the chatter you get while riding is absorbed in your sidewalls and you never feel it under foot.
The True color Sintered Fusion base is fast, doesn't have to be waxed as often and can take a beating from the park features you put it through. If you have bigger than a 10.5 boot size, make sure to check out a wide model so you don't get any toe drag.
i got this board from a warranty defect on my old dh. the board is a lot brighter than the picture makes it out to be. its like a bright yellow. its SICK. i think they went a little crazy on the graphix but whatever. i havent ridden it yet but i loved my old ride dh. THIS IS A GOOD LOOKIN BOARD! cant wait to try it
