Sellout Risk: Extremely High
Millions of snowboarders know that what sets your run apart from everyone else's is how your gear performs with you! With the new Forum Helm ICS Snowboard 154 you'll find yourself performing more agile feats. This board is engineered to go faster, last longer and easier to repair.
I picked this board up last year when they had their 70% off sale for $78.00(with some credits that I had). I've used this board 6 days this year and had mixed feeling about how it handled. I like the stiffness of the board but to me the edge hold is lacking from what I expected. When turning the board at high speeds it would get kind of sketchy and handle not too well. At lower speeds the board handled as you would expect. It took me a while to dial in the bindings because of the sketchiness, once dialed in the board performed better but the edge hold is not the best. It preformed decent in the park, but I believe this board is best suited for just cruising around the mountain. I've been riding my 10 Custom V most of the season, so I might be making most of my opinions based on how it compared to the Custom. If you looking for a good board and plan on doing little in the park take a look at the Helm, but I would wait until it's under $300 because in my opinion it's not worth the suggested MSRP. Aesthetically the board looks great and has one of the best top sheets that I've ever seen. You have to see it in person to get the true feel of how it looks.
I picked up this board used for a steal. It is my first real snowboard and so far it is awesome. The graphics on the topsheet look much better then pictured, as the image has the mini color dots washed out. In reality it is very detailed and you can see the woodgrain behind the colors. It is very easy to ride even though I'm barely an intermediate rider. Very easy to carve though the turns and is stable at speed to give a lot of confidence when riding. As I am still learning, just message or reply if there are any specific questions.
Super fun board... Easy to ajust stand width and position. Ride centered for non pow days and park. And when it dumps, simply loosen the screws and set that s*%t back!!! Conventional camber, good for the icy days. Colors look sick too.
Good board to raise your level in all areas of the mountain with a directional shape for powder, defends very well in the park. THE only problem is that its flexibility makes it a little unstable at high speeds.
I really like this board for everyday park riding. Very easy to carve and makes butters too easy. It locks onto downrails and slides very nicely. Only problem I had was it is too soft for high speed especially when it gets really choppy in slush. I haven't tried it in powder yet but I assume it will be decent.
Great All Mountain Board. Rode in VT all season and loved it.
