Testers' Ratings

This is one of the most complete versatile boards in both curves and freestyle. It stands out from the competition for its comfort on all terrains. It's the Amplid reference!

True to itself, the Paradigma is still well in the lead of the best versatile freestyle boards, with a full, punchy personality. Its consistency and wilfulness are real assets in all types of snow; it can go anywhere and takes on the terrain effectively. It features varied and efficient cornering lines on the edge, with easy, intuitive handling. Although the length of the edge is imposing and provides a lot of stability, you won't feel much need to be vigilant. Precision and progressivity are retained in the pick-up, without the slowness sometimes inherent in moving from edge to edge. It turns out to be rather light for a board of this type. Its ollies are good, although a little long. It performs well without being demanding, proving to be a board that does everything (well) and will entice many.
