Additional to its Directional Twin shape and hybrid rocker profile, this board also features a slightly longer nose of approximately 3/4 of an inch. This extra length further enhances floatation and improves the board’s straight-line stability. Although it feels most happy taking on natural features at your local mountain. It doesn’t shy away from throwing in some jumps and jibs in the mix. Especially when you’re spending most of your day lapping the park. Compared to last season this board has stayed pretty much the same, apart from some minor tweaks. On snow, this board felt really good. It still communicates really well, rides forgiving and handles a variety of riding styles. It’s got the catch-free feel of rocker and the stability of camber. Turning is not that quick from edge-to-edge but the board transitions nicely.
The edge hold is good in hard conditions, but it’s not an ice specialist. On powder, this board offers some easy float as it planes well over fresh snow. Riding fast has improved compared to earlier years. It doesn’t chatter that much and holds its speed for a longer time. The board offers a decent amount of pop. You can easily approach the jump while getting a forgiving and stable landing.
