I designed this board with the thought of making it able to turn amazing and ride everything forwards and backwards. The one board quiver. When testing it last season I made sure to ride everything, halfpipe, powder, park, groomers, steeps, ice, etc. It has a little early rise in the nose to make it ride a little better forwards, but still performs amazing backwards. Of the last 25+ years I’ve been snowboarding this is the best board I’ve ever ridden.
