The Custom Flying V is the most famous board on the planet for a reason, this thing is a joy to ride! Like the Custom designs before it this years Custom Flying V has been designed to excel at every aspect of snowboarding and as with previous Custom’s it does exactly that; this is the ultimate all-mountain snowboard. If you’re not really a jibber and you’re looking for a board that will kill the park, piste, pipe and open mountain with equal prowess then look no further. The Custom is the board that all other board manufacturers wish they could emulate.
“It rides like a Custom ‘cause it is.”
Juiced up and ready for lift-off, the Custom Flying V™ continues as the benchmark all other boards are compared to. The one-board answer for all terrain, its proven design improves power, pop, and handling with evolutions like Squeezebox and Lightning Bolts to energize the ride. Available in two versions, camber is the precise choice for Nicolas Müller while Mikkel Bang switches it up, often running the “best of both worlds” hybrid Flying V.

What a great board. Loved it. Was affraid of the negative reviews but most of them were not true. The only one true was the no control on ice. The board simply doesn’t ride on ice… Jumps, hardpack, speed, powder (WOOOHOO board), jibs…peeeeeeerfect :D

Well this board is a good board but only in good conditions. Icy and hardpack there are better boards. If you are a regular rider, this is a good “extra” board. If you are a occasional rider, this board is excellent, if you manage only to ride in good conditions. It’s not an ideal board for any conditions. In Spain we have a lot of icy days and hard pack and it was not very pleasant to ride it.
