Flexy, playful, fun. The 2012 Skate banana took my style and freestyle skill to the next level. The 2014 is just as amazing.
You'll see many reviews that say it's not an all mountain board, or that it's unstable, or even too flexy and not enough pop. I love this board on all conditions. It holds it's edge, carves beautifully, and is playful but responsive. It's just an all around fun ride.
No, It doesn't have as much pop as say a C2 or T.Rice Pro.
No, it's not the best board for the 9o'clock run off the icy faces at Keystone.
I would rather have my sintered base back. (The 2012 had it) But the TNT extruded isn't bad at all.
I would love to be able to choose the color. But I for one love COLOR ROULETTE.
Take the Dive. Love the Banana.
