Great board! Not as much flex as I was thinking, but allows for good maneuverability. Had to get used to the no rocker, but powered out of the turns nicely. This board is very fast with its sintered base. I was outrunning everyone! Cant wait to ride again!!
Great board so far. I've only ridden it once, but I like it. It is very light and carves great. It is taking a little while to adjust from my smaller terrain board to the larger 161 size. The only down side is that Ive already got a few nicks on the edges after just one ride.
This board is extremely light and gives the feeling of nothing being under your feet. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I like to go down the mountain fast in a straight line every now and again and this board is great for that but can give you a bumpy ride. I would say that is because the board is so light and is more of a park board overall. Again, very light, lots of pop, and definitely a very comfortable ride overall.
I've been riding for over 10 years, read most reviews that said this was a good expert board.. would have to disagree. All around quality good board, with the right amount of flex to hit the park and freeride, but the edges look like they belong on the first board I ever rode. Would like a little sharper edge for harder cuts, but still a pretty decent ride.
Wanted a light, poppy, do it all board. Harder to find traditional camber in a twin tip that's not just a noodly rocker park whore. Although it's a flat camber, it sounds promising to still have some snap to it, and buttering should be more fun than a stiff traditional. This seemed as close as I could get to something that I can take everywhere and rip the snot out of it. Ordered 161 to haul ass through the chunder and slay booters. I'd rather ride pow than jib in the park now days.
Best Answer:This board is very light and flexible. Almost feels like there is nothing underneath you. It does have really good pop and I hardly have to jump when hitting some of the bigger kickers and jibs.
Would this be a good board for me? I am a beginner and don't do much freestyle, mostly mountain. I do want to do more freestyle and learn to ride switch better though. I am 5'10" 180-185 lbs. Thanks!

Best Answer:This board its very friendly. I used to ride only bigger mountain boards, but wanted something a little smaller and more geared for freestyle. This board can do it all! Very well balanced, even though this is my first season on it it's already become by favorite board. love it way more then my older K2 Darkstar and Burton Custom. I ride a 149 at 5'8 175lbs
I'm a beginner, i've only gone a couple times, i did pretty poorly the first two times with the mountain rental boards a 155 and 157. Last time i went i rented a 160 burton from a local ski shop and had a much easier time turning, carving, everything. I'm 6'1" 170, long legs. Wondering what size board would be best for me, considering this board, the k2 brigade, k2 illusion. What size board, and is there any one in particular would you say would be best suited for me?

Best Answer:You're going to like either one of those boards. If your gravitating towards all mountain get a 160ish, park go 157. I have the lifelike in 161 for hauling ass through chunder, the pow days, and big jump lines. I'm your hight but a little lighter. I'd honestly go with the cheapest board and put the savings into boots because you have no idea what to compare it too and will love whatever your on. In the next season or two buy another one with a little more perspective on your style of riding :) And buy with confidence, K2's rip. I've had 4 of them through the past 16 years and none of em sucked. And good call picking the flat camber boards, they're not noodles for carving, but not too stiff for buttering like traditional camber.
**If you have a narrow foot look at Northwave for boots. And stay away from burton binders, heel drag city and good luck getting parts from them when they fall apart after 5 rides without shipping them in under warranty @&$holes.
I'm the same size and got the 155 lifelike last season. It makes so much difference to have your own board. I sucked on rentals but absolutely love this one. You can't get much smoother or quicker of a ride than this board. Happy boarding bro
What size board should I be looking at? I'm 5'7", so initially I was thinking 155... but my weight is ~195lb, which makes me think I need to be looking at 161. Appreciate the help, not sure if it matters, I'm in a size 10.5 Burton boot and looking at GNU Street bindings. I'm primarily on the groomed trails of Killington and prefer the long cruising runs, so stability is important with the speed, but I don't want to give up responsiveness either.
I have Burton Custom bindings purchased in like 2004 on a Burton Indie 158 snowboard (same year). Will those bindings work with this board? I don't believe i have any other attachments, inserts, or adapters other than what's currently on the board now. I'm 5'9" about 180 lbs and am intermediate-advanced. Don't really venture into the park, but do like trees & bumps and spend most of my time on blacks and blues. I have size 10 Solomon Dialogue boots. Will this be a good setup? Thanks!
