    Ich hatte letztes Jahr viel Spaß das Abacus zu probieren, aber ich denke etwas härter schadet echt nicht. Gute Entscheidung.

    Habe das Board vergangenes Wochendende beim Split & Relax getestet.

    Jetzt weiß ich warum der Typ der es am Samstag gefahren ist nicht hergeben wollte. Für mich "fast" das PErfekte Board. Zusammen mit der Spark Bindung super leicht.

    Im Aufstieg ist das geringe Gewicht natürlich kein Nachteil. In der Abfahrt ist es super verspielt auf der Piste. Das erste Split mit dem mir auch schöne BS 180s gelingen. Trotzdem hat es dank "Grip Tech" auch auf eisiger Piste super Kantenhalt und lässt sich schön carven.

    Also ein fehlerverzeihendes Board mit enormen Sicherheitsreserven wenn es drauf ankommt.

    Nur bei Querungen im harten Schnee waren die Kollegen mit den richtig harten Brettern im Vorteil.
