Built for the kind of freestyle MFM’s famed for, this has a buttery jibbery friendly directional flex and what Montoya calls “the perfect shape”. Just like your boy, this board will take a licking and keep on ticking. Holla!

In Sölden international pro-riders of the Burton/Red-Team also participated and ultimately Burton/Red were the ones who - with their big financial support - made it possible that those camps could be held.
