Illuminati Pentagon Freeride Review

Illuminati Pentagon


Description
Dual progressive sidecut for the freestyle/ freeride. This board rules in the park/pipe but has a great nose for true mountain riding and powder. This line has full contact length Carbon -UNI for extra pop going forward or fakie. * This year's graphic is an arial photo of the Pentagon Defense building in Washington, sublimated into a High Gloss black topsheet...DOPE!

Summary:
Jesus. This board is somethin else. I lived in Steamboat in the winter of ILL's first season and a friend of mine got a couple of their boards cheap or free. I'm 5'6" 135 and I thought it would be fun to try his brand new ILL 163 for a day. I did, I came home, and told him to get me one a little smaller. I ended up with the 159 and immediately stopped riding my cracked M3 and rode my new ILL 159 for the rest of that season, the next season, and the season after that. Well over 200 happy days later, the board is getting a little soft so I just bought a new ILL. Spread the word. The Illuminati.

Summary:
I bought this board having high expectations about every aspect of boarding (freeride): acceleration, turn response, transition response, high speed stability, low speed manuverability. This thing met every one of them and surpassed a few. this thing accelerates "unrealistically" fast, and it turns so predictably it raises your confidence out there (making me break my arm at mt high =/). if I ever lost my edge while in a turn, no matter how fast or hard, it was my own fault not some random dumbness of the board itself (like my old k2 spitfire). I rode it on hard packed snow on nicely groomed trails, some slush and some ice and it handled very responsive and predictable in all those conditions. so help make the ILL team make cash and buy a board cuz they deserve it, and you *probably* deserve such a crazy board.

Summary:
I got turned on to the Illuminati by Nic Drago and Keenan Rice during a photo shoot. I broke my Burton and needed a board to ride. The ill was epic as sonn as I laid into my first turn. It felt like an extension of my body.
