This borad is sick. enough said.
Epic? I think so
The Ride Society is pretty much the Cadillac of snowboards. It cruises, it carves, it pops, it jibs. It does anything that you can throw in front of it. I got to ride the 154 last season and absolutely loved it. Once you're past the break in period, its on like Donkey Kong.
The Slimewalls make vibrations slim to none and help when gripping on rails. The Cleavedge is so sick, because you can detune to almost nothing and still have an edge.
It is the same flex as the DH, but with the Carbon Array of 5 it is a lot snappier than the DH. I demo'd the DH and the sidecut on this is much more superior to the DH.
I recommend this deck to anyone with the idea of wanting to shred the entire mountain as their terrain park.
Best board ever !
I was fortunate enough to attend a demo back in February and got to ride this board. This board has a similar flex to the DH, but has more pop to it with the extra carbon fiber underfoot. It carves so much better than the DH with it's quadratic side cut and the base of the board is fast as can be.
I rode the 160, I have a 10.5 boot size and had no issues at all with any toe drag at all. I took this board through the park, carving on trail and it some powder in the trees and it was great everywhere. This is definitely going to be my board for the 07/08 snowboard season!
If you want something that is a bit snappier and more responsive then the DH and carves as well as an alpine board, but still kills the terrain park you will love this board.
