Palmer Carbon Circle Freeride Review

Palmer Carbon Circle


Description
This board by Shaun Palmer handles anything--it's stable at high speeds, affords great all-mountain control and is versatile in the park/pipes.. 3D technology in the wood core reduces weight and increases strength, all for unparalleled stability and a smooth ride. Featuring two layers of carbon fiber strips for increased strength and liveliness, plus extra energy and powerful rebounds without added weight. CCT (Composite Core Technology) utilizes different core materials such as honeycomb and wood for light weight with superior riding performance. Unique 3D cap-sandwich construction takes the best of both worlds for ultimate direction in edge power with better edge grip, control and response. Palmer uses only multidirectional pre-impregnated fiberglass laminates for ultralight torsional stiffness and an even longitudinal flex. ABS tip and tail protectors for a low swing-weight and high impact-resistance for protection through rough crud. Isospeed BX base is super fast and durable in all temperatures and conditions, with easy care and repair to boot. .

Summary:
I like this board a lot even though it is getting older now I am still hesitant to get another board. Great Flex, a lot of support, tuns of pop. I find it is easy to control the ollie on this board.
Turns like race car, and is fast as one too. Good side cut, but can get away from you. I have had a few late day tired tumbles.
I find it to be very versitile. I ride a 158 for almost all conditions and terrain.

Summary:
This board is amazing. It's very stiff, and loves to go fast. Carves well, edges stay sharp for a long time, haven't lost an edge on it once yet. Definately more stable at high speeds. This board really wants to point straight down hill, so you really have to be alert, and can't get away with being lazy when you're ridin it; it can be pretty unforgiving. Being a stiff board, it can be pretty tough in the park as well, you've really gotta be on your game when in the park/pipe... but hey, that's what you want anyway, isn't it?
