RATE THE GRAPHICS FROM 1 TO 7:  2

ADDITIONAL GRAPHICS COMMENTS: There isn’t any graphics, but the topsheet material has some of the best snow shedding around!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY: Reverse sidecut-its something to experience. It requires more of a surf style ride with pressure/stance toward the middle of the sidecut vs. pressure toward the nose/tail. But when you find that sweet spot, it will hold an edge on everything and still euro carve!
