The Flow Infinite Snowboard 168 is definitely one of the most versatile boards around! It's light, sleek, and snappy design allow you to be in full control and perform at your very best. This board is perfect for all skill levels. It is also perfect for every terrain and location. If you want unlimited possibilities, look no further, because this is the snow board for you! This well-rounded board is sure to delight and never disappoint!
This is my fist board and I have loved it for learning to ride, riding switch, garlands and small jumps. The board is stable (I've only been up to about 25mph) and has held up well. I'm sure that this board will out perform me for many seasons to come. I have a size 11 boot and do not have any toe or heel drag with Flow Quattro bindings and Burton Ruler Boots
Used this board in perisher over the weekend. For anyone who knows Front Valley in Perisher, i got off a mid-station, pointed the board down the hill and did not turn till the bottom, and i'm not that great a rider. But this board makes you feel great; so stable at high speeds, and easy to carv
I ride back country alot. The Infinite is much easier to land on. Less nose dives. The board is good at high speeds, dropping into cutes or taking groomers. I think the board is good for intermediate and advanced riders this one will keep you entertained
I purchased the 2010 Flow Infinite as my first board and I have been super stoked with it. I've ridden it at Cardrona, the Remarkables and Coronet in NZ on groomers and in the park and it has handled anything that I have thrown at it. I'm 6'4'' and 210lb with a size 13 boot and I went for the 168 and I'm really glad I did because it added extra stability at high speeds, extra room for my clown feet and didn't sacrifice too much maneuverability in the park (I'm still only learning in the park though). Riding switch on it was pretty easy for a directional board. The sintered base is really quick and the bright green colour lights up the snow underneath for a bit of extra steeze! The only problem I've had with it is the top sheet chipped a little too easy in the lift queues, but so far it's only been a cosmetic problem.
This is my first board so I don't have much to compare it to other than the Burton LTR's that I'd always rented at the resorts previously and, of course, it's much better than those, which could just be due to the fact that I'm out on it this weekend on the factory wax job, which I've heard is the best it ever gets.
In any case, I have no complaints. My stance is centered as I switch a lot and am not having any problems, even though it's not a reverse board. It seems very fast and stable, but again, nothing to compare it to other than the rental boards, so of course it feels a million times better.
The Infinite is pretty much Flows answer for the rider that wants a great freestyle/all-mountain board. The Infinite is a directional board, incorporating the Whiskey Royal tech (which I was skeptical about honestly.) The board turns on a time, and pretty much destroys powder. Overall, I'd classify the flex as a medium stiffness. Even though it's a directional board, I didn't have a hard time riding switch on it, although it is slightly setback, so if you're not used to a directional setback, it may take some getting used to. The Infinite is actually surprisingly poppy, and fun to pop off of kickers. All in all, probably my favorite board from Flow this year for all around riding.
