I'm 192.5cm and 93Kg and WOOOOO!!!! this board is awesome and really weird. I rode a Burton Custom 165W for 5 years. This new board is fun, scary and squirrelly. It took 3 runs to get used to the new way I need to ride. It's going take a bit longer to really learn how to ride this board. The 3BT technology forces you to ride a bit different but frees you up from that fear of catching an edge. I didn't have time to get it waxed but was assured by Bataleon and other research that it probably didn't need it and that was correct. I highly recommend this board for heavy guys or guys with big feet. The waist on the 164 is 268 which is wider than my Custom. You will be comfortable. At low speeds it tends to pull to one side for short distances like 5 to 10 meters any longer and it may put you in a spin. I don't do parks so I can't speak to how well it will do there but on piste it's good and the wee bit O' powder I hit was like floating on air. I shall end this season on high note.
I am 6'2 225, and I finally found the snowboard I have been searching for my whole life. I cannot explain how amazing this board is. Handles so incredibly well, finally feel like I can fly down the mountain without the worry of catching an edge. Hands down best board ever for any large snowboarder. It is also super light which allows for so much control and it feels like you are just surfing through powder.
Great board lots of pop. Very forgiving great in powder.
Super Stable & holds a carve like you would not believe! Great fun, really fast & awesome for jumping!
