The Flow Quantum is a freestyle park specific board. Most well know by the Olympic Bronze Halfpipe winner Scotty Lago. This year’s board features a TruTwin shape with a pop camber tech for that all around control you need whether in the pipe, park or riding all mountain. The tip and tail were made with a little more flex to give you that added press everyone loves these days. The Quantum’s base is an impressive sintered 4000 material, making this board hold speed to the highest level. Flow has used a Lite Quadrax Glass with carbon strands in the topsheet to give the board added pop and durability.
The graphics were done by Mr. Scotty Lago himself which I must say look pretty good. The Quantum is coming in four sizes for the 2010-2011 lineup – 150, 152, 155, 158. There’s something there for everyone. The sidecut features a progressive dual transition which has a mellower radius between the feet and an aggressive radius towards the tips and then going back to mellower radius at the top. This was added to give you added grip at your feet to power in and out of hard carves. Followed by the Whiskey Double Malt tech which puts four titanal forks beneath the heal and toe areas, which transfer the energy toward the edges giving you quicker response and increased edge hold at large speeds.
All in all I really enjoyed riding the board. It held a good edge, rode really aggressive and responsive and just felt good. The Flex was a little stiffer than I am used to, but kind of nice cause the amount of pop out of it was unreal. I would defiantly recommend this board to anyone looking to step up their game. I would say this board is not meant for rookies.
