Ok, so I just won a Sierra Reverse Crew, need to know which size to get. I am 5'11" and 170lbs. I can ride pretty well, but dont do any tricks. I would use this board mostly for powder days to cruise. I think my choices are 155 and 159, right?

I also have a Sierra Team 157 for other days, so I am thinking a 159.

they also have a 162 for the reverse crew. But Id say the 159 for you if your not doing tricks.

at your size for a pow cruiser board the 62 would be the one to go with unless you have a strict preference for something smaller, which i assume you don't since you're unsure of which size to get.

Keep in mind i think the 162 is directional vs the others being twin.

I would definitely go for the 159 at your size/riding preference.

all that probably means for the crew is that the nose kick is longer, so it's still essentially a twin as far as how it actually works in real life.  and if its shape is from the custom, then it would have a longer nose kick for all the sizes.  the reverse crew is a custom shape with process construction isn't it?

i don't really know why you wouldn't go for the 62 at 170 pounds for a powder cruiser unless you have a really specific preference, which again, it doesn't sound like you do since you're asking.

I think you can go 159 or 162.  At 170 a 159 rockered board should have a solid amount of float and if you plan on trying to learn freestyle riding then a shorter board would make sense.  If you are also riding a lot of tight trees I could see the 159 working for you as well, but whatever get the 159 or 162 for pow...162 if you truly are going to only use it for pow...159 if you plan on using it for other purposes as well.

I believe i focussed on the "dont do any tricks" part of the post rather than the "powder days to cruise" part.

And since you already have a Team 157, it would probably be a good idea to have a deck thats substancially longer for a totally different riding style.

Would like to change my vote to the 162.  159 will still be fine in powder, but the 162 will likely be more enjoyable

this. the 157 and 159 will be similar so i would go with the 162. you'll have alot more float on those deep pow days which is always a good thing

The RC and the Team are going to feel worlds different just because of their opposite camber profiles, regardless of size.

I ride a 159 at 190lbs.  For my weight, it's a playful jack-of-all-trades board with acceptable float in powder.  Twenty pounds less and I think the float would be great.  The 162 would be even better in this regard, but I think the 159 would be more versatile.



Also, I believe it's the 160w that's a directional board, not the 162.

OK thanks guys, I think the 162 is it! I ahve the 157 TEAM for everyday stuff and trying tricks, so the 162 would be my pow board.

It can take a while, couple weeks sometimes maybe.  I think they probably let the list build up and then do them all at once on a regular basis.
