With notable serration on its edges--MagneTraction is an understatement here--some riders were wary of the Story's alibi. Turns out, all those extra contact points on this lightweight, hybrid camber stick came in quite handy in hairball scenarios, i.e. punching through pinched chutes or slamming on the brakes at the bottom. One admittedly skeptical tester described this as "one of the most fun, all-around boards I’ve ridden," explaining, "It handles everything, and despite looking like overkill, the edges held and performed. I’d be comfortable riding everything on this guy: steeps, groomers, and jumps." The Story's feather weight and predominantly rockered profile had some riders describing its feel as notably freestyle: "It felt like a park board that could hang wherever you want to take it--159 edge hold with 155 agility." This is a board that breaks tradition in favor or ingenuity. For some it was off-putting, while it resonated well with others.
