The look of a snowboard shouldn't matter, but it does help. The Helix looks stunning and uses the asymmetric shape that makes heel edge turns much easier and toes edge turns feel even better.

The Helix is an all mountain freestyle board with a medium flex making it great for pretty much any rider of any ability and holds its own in a straight line, feels stable under foot and holds an edge amazingly well.

Playful and poppy the Helix excels in the park too making short work of boxes, rails and kickers. I particularly liked how easy it was to spin with the cut down tips.

In powder it will hold its own and more experienced riders won't have any problems. There are better boards out there, but overall I loved this board!
