Recommended Posts

Saw the recent SG Line Up on the @i-carve.com Facebook page.

New for this year:

Soul 164XT

Force 165 V17XT

 

But, I think the best would be a Soul Surf Titan 164XT. Maybe next year...

titan soul 164xt would be on my wish list i love the soul just wish it was stiffer

It's a shame that the only wide version up until now was a 159. It is softer than my old 164 unfortunately. 

You might prefer the new Force 65 V17XT. That's metal and wide and stiff.

Or maybe...wait for it...a custom Oxess...

164XTT? lol extra large and titan. 

Liked the 159xt but I'm too fat for it and too short.

The quest for the magic perfect grail board is never ending.

Rode soul Titan when it first came out last year, that thing is a funcarving beast without the stiffness and need for speed of a force, yet super stable still...

Force V17 they don't even use in BX much... Vaultier uses V15, the sidecut with that stiffness will make it an extreme bomber.....

I think just contact Marcel at Oxess and tell him your idea of your dream board!

well

I am little disappointed honestly. 

last year you had to pay extra coin to get Ester design. this time you get it as full. race. 

that full carve galaxy looks too similar to 2010 model. 

ten year challenge or what?

I like SGs, only issue I have is that they have not changed at all since very long time. every time I get new model it always feel like old pair of boots. 

maybe you do not change the winning team but it think innovation is always welcome

Not much to innovate in a production serial board right now though. Same goes with Kessler's production board lineup- hasn't changed in ages if ever really. They have their winning formula to minimise production cost and maximise buyer happiness. I think that's also why the innovation is in softboot carving stuff, no real established benchmark yet. 

Any idea what you'd like to see in some improvements? I know I'd like to see a new topsheet material, because I think this is where SG is behind in durability and ride. But then again, they need to manufacture to the cheapest of the 3 price points between Kessler, SG and Oxess, so maybe it isn't feasible.

Shame SG won't make custom unless you'll win Olympic gold, though.

I would like to see more carving only boards i.e., cause so far you can get only racing shapes (I am not saying they are bad for carving) but I would like to get an 180 with 15m radius or less, while sigi offers only racing radius of 18m plus. 

I am not a big fan of driving lorries mate. 

ptex on top would be great, agree here. 

cheers

Yeah I'm with you. Maybe if the entire Full Carve range had more carve specific geometry, it'd be good. Then just offer metal and non metal full race boards instead of offering a different topsheet graphic as an entirely product range...

SG 175 Full Race would be fine board carving if it would be 1-2 cm wider.

It is easy to run and turns nicely, but for carving it is slightly narrow, specially when you tilt board to near 90 degrease.

One of my two favorite carving boards ever, along with my 162 Kessler SL custom. I am 145 pounds and 25 mondo boots though. It was perfect for me.

Rode K162 a couple weeks ago, it wants to go faster significantly more than SG FC and Nobile, @daveo had previously said that anything except K168 feels murder-y

i am curious what the widths are on the soul 64xt and the 65 v17 xt

Force 165 has width of 252, soul 159xt is 275, I'd imagine the new soul xts have width of 270+, force xt maybe 260-270 for BX riding (faster edge flip).

That's kinda the different school of thought on carving tho.... 

SG's way feels like, do less, and if you want a tighter turn for more carving just angulate more.

Such a racing idea..... us lax carvers need custom shit while he rides everything, everywhere.....

Sorry, I was regarding mainly about the race sidecut

Kesslers go fast. Mine is a friendlier version for my lighter weight than stock. The stock K162 SL is serious.

I loved that SG 175 Full Race Pro so much that I bought an SG 157 SL. The 175 was fast and friendly. The 157 SL not so much. When it was on it was amazing. If the conditions were softer than firm hero, it was a beast. The K162 custom is much more versatile. Sort of a quicker, more lively 168.

Definitely rode a stock K162, possibly this year's B stock with 0.4mm titanal rather than older 0.3, it's such a powerful board that you just have to be more powerful.... K168's geometry is more friendly, from what I've been gathering here on the forum.

I have 175 FC from Sg and it is a lot of fun, doesn't do well on ice but heck I love the flex (~75kg geared).

Are you saying 157 race only does well in soft conditions? Could it under your weight range?

The 157 only worked in firm conditions for me, which we did not see a lot of in Utah. One memorable day though at Snowbasin it was chalky and everyone was complaining and that board was perfection. It was too stiff for me to consistently enjoy free carving on it. It is a straight up SL board meant to run gates.

59 is 25.5

59XT is 27.5

64 is 26

Going off that, how do you get 27+ and not 28+?

@pauleleven did you lose your calculator? 🤣😂

      Hey,
       
      I'm trying to get myself up with a hardboot set up.  I was gifted a Pogo Shaman, and just bought some used UPZ10's off ebay (oops).  I was curious if anybody had some bindings they think would work well for me.  I took the 185 out with a softboot set up and was horribly humbled by a sloppy powder day.  I understand that i will be humbled again by this learning process, but was curious if you all had any suggestions/equipment that you think would help me on my path.
       
      Thanks!

      So kind of a sad day, I've decided to finally pull the trigger on a custom Oxess, which essentially means I've got a handful of boards and not enough legs nor monies. So the plan was to wait until 2020 to buy the Oxess and to put a Vistflex plate on it. But @pokkis decided to ruin that plan by selling me his Vistflex plate. So I blame him for this. Jokes, he is a legend, thanks again. I'm home this week, so I figured I'd get the photos done. I'm selling both the new items for significantly less than I spent, but hey, that's life, and I think the Coiler is a nice price for whoever wants it.
      I'll be donating $10 from each sale to ASB.
      1. Coiler Nirvana VCam 178cm. Titanal construction. Matte black carbonium topsheet. 19cm waist. 12-14m VSR sidecut radius. 16mm taper. Made for a 180lbs rider. Ridden exactly 20 days. Topsheet 8/10 (some little lift line nicks), base 9/10 (because not new, although can't see any imperfections), edges 10/10 never been touched and not dinged. Been stored with storage wax on the base, upright in a dry place and very little surface rust that I can see. I bought it new from Bruce and it rides exactly as you would expect. Sells new for CAD930, asking $450. SOLD.
      2. Brand New SG Full Carve 170. Took delivery of this earlier in the year. Never ridden. Never even had bindings mounted. I did, however, stick that Apex sticker on because I thought I was cool doing so. I can easily remove that. After I rode my friend's one for a couple of runs this year, I just had to have one. I would say it compares favourably to my Kessler 168 (and that's saying a lot). So, I bought one. And now, I sell one ?. Sells new for EUR689, asking $550. SOLD.
      3. Brand New Apex X Plate 4x4. Apparently this is a stiffer than usual version. I can actually somewhat flex it with my hands, so I'm not 100% sure what the regular plate is like, but I'm guessing this is stiffer. It comes with 8 bumpers instead of the regular 4. Comes with everything I got with it. Instruction manual, 4mm hex key, 10mm and 12mm bolts and obviously all necessary mounting hardware. Bought this because I have an Apex Race V2 and Geckos and love them both. So, why not eh? Sells new for CAD1200, asking $650. SOLD.
      Shipping is $50 for the boards and $30 for the plate. Add apx $0-$10 for shipping to Canada depending on location.
      FULL DISCLOSURE: If there is interest for this stuff, I will pack them individually and ship them all to the US at once, once they are landed, I'll take payment for whoever buys them and they will be shipped individually to whoever wants them. Payment only to be sent once the boards are in the US and ready to be sent, not before. So if you are interested, let me know, and I can reserve you what you are interested in (no obligation to buy). Shipping to the US, takes 7 days and then it takes 1-7 days from there to you, depending on your location.
      MUG SHOTS:


      Coiler Nirvana VCam 178cm:




      Brand New SG Full Carve 170:

      Now there's no "Bomber" whom we rightly had to respect, I think I can ask this question....   There are multiple variants of the standard F2 binding out there, but has anyone any reviews/ experience/ comparative information on them? I like to avoid riding stuff which is more than a decade old, so I ought to buy some more bindings and I'm wondering which will work best. The ones I know of are:
      Standard F2 Titanium bindings, same as I've used for the last 20 years and which work flawlessly for me. They come in two sizes of which I use the smaller. You can get blue anodized ones thi season, it seems, as well as the standard black. The CNC version of the above. These are pretty and maybe I should get some to put on my bookshelves, but they're not commonly used in races I think so perhaps they have "stiffness" problems as per some other machined bindings. They're likely heavier and more expensive than (1). The Virus "Power Lock" stuff... they look similar in principle to the F2, but apparently are "machined from a solid block" of whatever so perhaps are stiffer? I'm not really looking for that, and I'm kind of suspicious of Virus as they make those extremely narrow boards which isn't my thing. These come with a baseplate - is that mandatory? How high does that put the boot over the board? I kind of like simple and low, hence F2 Ti Race not F2 Titanflex. Kessler's F2 variant. These have white handles and no step-in variant, but otherwise look like stock F2 bindings. Is that what they are? These come in 3 sizes, suggesting they're not just a re-brand of the F2s.  Are there any more, perhaps South-East Asian variants I should look at?
      I'm just interested in any actual users of these and similar bindings... what are the main characteristics and what do I need to know which isn't obvious?....
