Pros: Stable, good carver, easy turner
Cons: none for now
Newbie to boarding, upgraded to the Ride Control after a few weeks on a K2 beginner board. What a step up! Immediately felt much more stable at speed. Equally adept at carving as the softer flexing K2. I don't head anywhere near the park, so the directional shape and freeride sidecut works very well for me. Not up to speed in riding in snowy conditions except for light powder (< 2"). So far the board seems to handle light chop well. Enough strength to plow right through without sending me off-balance. A great board for the beginner rider moving up the experience ladder.
