Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried and owned many snowboards and this is the best moderate to aggressive all-mountain free ride and freestyle I've ever ridden or owned. It's poppy on the groomers and carves well thanks to magne-traction. In the longer sizes, it has pretty good float on pow. It's stable and doesn't chatter at high speeds, and I ride at 40-55 mph. It's symmetric and switch riding feels exactly the same. It has easy turn initiation, making it good for moguls or trees, while maintaining its carving power. (This is a rare and highly desirable combination).

What it DOESN'T do is a short list. Being only moderately stiff and with a rockered center, it only has moderate ollie power. It has reasonable float on pow but you'll still have to lean back in deep pow (the only way you won't is with a dedicated powder board). The graphics are uninspiring, top and bottom, but I don't care because I bought the stealth version and will just plaster it with stickers.

It's perfect because it's cheap, light (the lightest helmet on the market), small (so it doesn't make me look or feel like a bobble-head), cheap, and comfortable.

The helmet comes without readable instructions, so it took me a while to figure out (a) how to close the vents and (b) that the helmet actually is adjustable. At first, I thought it was a one-size-fits-all and too tight, but after a while I figured out that it could be adjusted, and now it fits perfectly.

When this gets all dented, I'm getting another Maze.

How to adjust: it's not obvious, but the elastic and plastic straps attached to the bottom of the helmet can be unsnapped from the helmet. Just pull them off. No, you won't break the straps, although it seems like you might.
