This deck is ripe with banana technology and promises to give you more control between your feet, extra float in powder, unbelievable pop, and divine flex. Oh, and the Magne-Traction edges will have you turning like a GS racer. This board does it all.

Tester feedback:

"Definitely good for having fun."

"Really easy to ride this board. The presses were ridiculous—I would buy this board."

Available sizes: 148, 151, 152, 156, 159
