Board: Flow Rush
Camber Option: I-Rock. Reverse camber between the toes, camber below foot, and a micro flat part simply earlier than the contact factors.
Bindings: Flow NX2 Hybrid
Stance: 21 Wide 12 Negative 9 Goofy
Boots: DC Lynx eight.5
My Weight: 155
Conditions: It was a spring pow dump with heavy snow falling on and off all day.
Flex: Not a full on freeride stiff kind of deck, however positively extra in direction of that than center of the highway. By and huge the flex was constant from tip to tail with only a little bit of torsional give.
Stability: The stiffness helps preserve you planted even in case you get actually again seat. For a rocker dominant deck it is rather steady. I by no means felt any chatter and you may push by means of nearly any type of various terrain with out getting bucked or bounced round.
Ollies: Super good snap. Even with the rocker and stiffer flex it allows you to load it if you wish to, however you continue to have the choice of a faster skate type snap. Super versatile and simple to get to. It’ll ship ya.
Pop On Jumps: The good factor about boards with middle rocker is that they allow you to load your physique and snap the board on the lip. Since you get all of the snap out of this factor that you just’ll want in skate-style snap you’ll be able to fear extra about your physique place and the place you might be within the air. It’s a pleasant feeling on something from 15 footers as much as as massive as you are feeling you’ll be able to ship it. No limits.
Butterability: There is simply barely sufficient give within the suggestions and torsinoally to make this enjoyable. It’s arduous work for positive and is best suited at larger speeds. Fluffly snow butters are higher although. Send it, push into it, spray some fluff, and snap round it’s all good.
Jibbing: You have started working for it. I at all times discovered that the ABT within the middle grabbed. Now with the embedded urethane you’ll be able to slide this with no fearful of sticking to a function. It’s positively work to get it locked right into a press however in case you can muscle it in then it does lock effectively and can get you to the top. Kinks are a chore in a press however boardslides transfer by means of easily. You do have to look at how arduous you snap in your strategy, put an excessive amount of into it and also you’ll both come down arduous or simply miss the entire rattling function.
Carving: The rocker will get you up on edge effortlessly and the sidecut holds on to no matter line you set it on. Super tight and snappy turns, lengthy drawn out bomber turns, trenches, no matter you need, it’s prepared.
Rider in Mind: Freeride freestyle or somebody going large within the park that likes a combined camber profile.
Personal Thoughts: Definitely a beefier deck and never for the sunshine hearted. It consistently needs to go quicker and larger. But if that’s what you need, otherwise you’re searching for a BC freestyle deck that gained’t fold in your run-out this can be a stand out possibility.
