oes the thought of a snowboard purchase sometimes put you in a state of euphoria so powerful that you think you might control the world? At other times does this same situation leave you so anxious and depressed that you feel your prefrontal lobes may not be working? Are these confusing feelings brought on by the idea that you'll never find a snowboard that will meet all of your needs as a snowboarder who rides the entire mountain? If not, you may be bipolar and should talk to somebody about that, bro. For the rest of you, the Manic is an all mountain shape with a directional rocker. The Manic features carbon stringers running from tip to tail to give the board a lively, responsive ride with plenty of pop. Slimewalls will keep this board chatter-free at high speed thanks to the vibration damping qualities of urethane for a smooth, responsive ride on groomers, in the park, or wherever else your manic phase might take you.
