I bought the 159 wide board looking for a good all-mountain/freestyle board hoping to use it for freeriding as well as in the park. Having been riding mainly freeride/all-mountain boards for the past ten years, I wanted to get back to trying more park riding on occassion, and needed a board with a bit more flex that would give me some ability to hit rails more comfortably and spin jumps with more ease, but that also held its own on the rest of the mountain. This board has been everything I hoped for in that regard. It carves very well,is quick edge to edge (even for a wide board in my case), the base is fast, it floats pretty well in powder, and you can take it pretty much anywhere on the mountain and it performs well. I feel much more comfortable spinning jumps, and it seems to lock into rails pretty well, although it is not super flexy for jibs, but it works fine for me. Also pretty poppy tail for ollies, and super stable in landing jumps and doesn't seem to hook an edge very easily. Overall, I am extremely happy with this board and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile all-mountain/freestyle board.
