New Donek Flux

Recommended Posts

I have been exchanging emails with Sean @ Donek over the past few days getting some details nailed down on a new board that I plan on buying prior to next season.  I have finally had it with my 06 Burton Baron and decided to go full on custom board this time around to get something I want.  So a little about me, I have been riding carving boards for over 20 years, my favorite board in my arsenal today is  2015 Coiler Nirvana 170.  I would like to have a board that is a little more all-mountain, which is why Sean is pointing me towards the Flux.  I am 6', 185 lbs., frequently ride in the midwest, with trips to the Rockies sprinkled in (where I spend most of my time in back country and hit good groomers).  I am thinking a 162 would be a good length, but I am curious of other people's thoughts on the waist width.  I got some new K2 Cinch bindings and 2019 Burton Photon (size 12) boots ready for it.  I was thinking of a starting stance angle in the back of 15 degrees, and front 20 degrees.  If I did my measurement rights, I would need about a 28.8 waist on the board to avoid toe/heel drag getting the board nearly vertical while laying out carves.  That width worries me a bit.  Thoughts?

Width is fine. There are other options out there to consider before you splash out though...

  • Since you already have a Coiler, why not a Coiler BXFR (free ride board)?
  • SG Soul 164XT looks nice, also.
  • But over anything, I'd get an Oxess P-1, but that highly depends on how deep your pockets extend.

Im size 11US and ride an donek Incline 162 with a 29.5cm waist with angles +33/-3 to be honest the width isn't much to worry about just expect to be a bit more aggressive with your edge change if you still wanting it to be snappy 🙂
