Testers' Ratings

At ease in freestyle jib with its bouncy flex and snappy, quick tips, it spins, it pops. As a bonus, it's versatile with varied, precise steering.

We are happy to come across the very dynamic Headspace once again. This compact freestyle relies totally on speed and energy to keep its Ace in a segment already bursting with freestyle all-mountain boards. It really is a very quick board, agile and aerial, with lots of life in its tips. It has a super-reactive pop thanks to its bouncy flex. Excellent in rotation, it has lightness and precision on impulsion, as well as stability on landing. Reassuring at high speed, it also boasts curve performance superior to most boards in its category with varied and efficient steering. We love its edges when accelerating into turns. You'll need to stay active and present on this excellent freestyle board, as it reacts quickly, without being elitist.
