I have to say that my sales rep Kyle was very informative and super helpful. I've been riding the same K2 Fatbob for almost 10 years and have been out of the loop as to what type of board I should ride. Kyle took the time and walked me through my options and figured that the Ride DH 159 was my best choice. He was right! Took it out on my first run and it's off the hook. Much better for the park, but still can keep up on the fast runs and quick turns. The Ride DH makes riding switch much easier as well...very easily controllable board. The was my first shopping experience with Backcountry and I'm hooked!
