This is a great board for an advanced rider looking for something fast, stable and powerful. The true camber throughout gives you an immense amount of power and pop off of lips and coming out of turns. Definitely takes a little more work in powder to keep afloat but if you wanted to ride it on deep days you could with a little stance setback.
- Some of the best edge hold of any board I've ridden
- Carves like an absolute beast
- Tons of power and pop
- Will take some getting used to for riders who have never ridden a true camber board
- Can catch edges more easily for a less experienced rider
- Full camber takes more energy to float in powder

About me: I'm 6'0", 200lbs, size12 Burton Ion boot, mounted with Salomon Hologram bindings. I own the 163W, but I've also ridden the 159.
I've road this board in everything from hard pack at Mott's Canyon to 12" of powder at Bachelor. It floats extremely well in powder and the camber rocker profile give it a lot of pop as well as the ability to lay down some of the hardest and smoothest turns. It’s extremely responsive from heel to toe. The stiffness (7/10) gives it an extremely stable ride which helps dampen out the chunder on a hard pack day and lets you rip it down the mountain. I've pointed this board downhill from top to bottom and felt in control the entire time.
Sizing: If you you'd rather have a quicker board to take in and out of the tree's and aren't all that concerned about two drag (for bigger boots) I'd go with the 159. If you want to have more lift in powder and an even more stable ride sending it down the hill then the 163W is what you'll want to go with.
Overall thoughts: This is a stiff hard charging big mountain killer that also can be turned into a daily driver. It really excels in powder, and any freeride terrain. It’s my go to for any day that produces new snow. It's not meant for a beginner or even an intermediate rider. It will ride you with you don't ride it.
- Built to be a do it all board, but really excels in big mountain riding.
- Edge tech really helps the board have a quick heel to toe response as well as holding an edge
- The stiffer stiffness allows it to be stable at high speed and float really well in powder
- Definitely is not designed for the casual rider. It's an aggressive and hard charging board.
- I'd like to see them make this is a 159W to appeal to appeal to a lighter rider with a bigger foot.
