Hi again, thanks for your input, but why do you suggest the 162cm and not the 166cm? Isn't it better to have a longer board if you're taller? I looked at the DH2 board you suggested, and again I'm worried about the length. I forgot to mention before but I also love to carve and cruise down the mountain at high speeds, does the length of the board play a factor when you want to cruise and carve (being 6'4")?

Best Answer: Hi Again Evan,

Thank you for researching what board will be best for you.

Manufacturers design boards to accommodate a rider's weight, not height.

A guy standing 6'4" who weighs 150 lbs should not ride the same board as a guy who's 6'4" and 220 lbs. A board flexes, pivots, twists, and tilts because of the amount of force (mass x acceleration) applied by flexion, extension, rotation, and separation of the upper body and lower body movements.

A board's stability is a combination of two things:
1. Effective Edge (EE) / Profile Shape (length of base/edge that has contact with the snow)
2. Construction Materials

The longer EE (more edge contact) a board has the more stable the board will be. The 166cm Salomon Sight Wide's EE is 126cm and the 161 Ride DH2 Wide's EE is 126.7.

Construction materials of a board play the biggest role in a board's stability; consider the fiberglass weave, core type/layout, and additional laminates.
- The Salomon Sight has a very basic construction with an Aspen wood core and a biax fiberglass weave - it has a consistent flex and a smooth ride.
- The Ride DH2's construction is much more complex with Popwalls (urthane and carbon) sidewalls, Aspen and Poplar wood core, Carbon Array 5 (5 nose and tail carbon stringers) laminates, and a Hybrid Glass (triax top / biax bottom) weave.

Although the 161cm Ride DH2 Wide is shorter than the 166cm Salomon Sight Wide, the DH2 will be much more stable at high speeds. It looks like we only have one more 161cm DH2 in stock - at the low price it's at, it'll sell quick.

I'm 6' 3.75" and weight as of this morning 212 lbs. My daily snowboard is 159cm...

Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi I am a 6'4" 225lbs intermediate snowboarder. I like to hit side lips and sometimes the big jumps in terrain parks. Would I be able to ride this board?

ps. I'm liking the size and price of this board, I'm trying not to pay too much, although considering my size it's hard to find... I would appreciate any tips!

Best Answer: The 162cm Sight Wide Snowboard is a great pick for your size! Salomon has been making some of the best boards in the game.

The 161cm Ride DH2 Wide Snowboard is another option you could explore. It'll be very stable at high speeds and have lots of pop too. Check it out HERE:
