Hi, I'm looking for a board that can handle well at high speeds and can have good grip in turns on groomed trails. I rarely, if ever, ride powder.. so I need the board to do well on groomed, sometimes crusty trails. I also want it to be able to perform well in the park, as I occasionally like to hit rails and jumps... What's your thoughts on this board?? And according to the flex rating, it should be relatively flexible???

Also.. Im 5' 11 and weight 170 lbs... I am a fairly advanced rider. What length do you think my board should be??

BEST ANSWER: Hello Alex,

Here's the thing; freeriding board that are stable at high speeds and hold edges on firm snow generally have a stiffer flex rating close to 6-10/10 whereas fresstyle boards are tend to be a little softer/forgiving for presses and jumping with a flec rating close to 2-4/10.

If you want a board that cruises the groomers AND can handle the park you'll need a board with a 4-6/10 flex rating. There are a multitude of other factors to consider like shape, laminates, and length. Being that that Salomon Answer Snowboard has a soft flec rating (3/10) it won't be as stable as you may life for ripping groomers.

You weight puts you in the weight range of decks from 156cm to 163cm in length, but I think you the best lengths would be between 155cm and 158cm.

I've listed two boards below that are great all around decks with pretty neutral flex ratings that have a similar price to this Salomon Answer Snowboard...
