Pivot-y. Smeary. Quick. Solid in bumps and excels in deeper snow and trees,” described one tester of the Beast 108, while another commented, “Held an edge on groomers really well, very quick edge-to-edge and also remarkably nimble in the trees.” Awarded a perfect 10 in the versatility category, you can see where those sentiments come from. Take it for a tour (one tester called it, “[his] favorite uphill ripper on downhill grades”), shred steeps in-bounds, trees, groomers, powder, crud… it can handle anything. With a waist width ranging from 106 to 109, depending on length, the Beast 108 can be relied upon for both powder days and bulletproof scenarios. Its rocker-flat- rocker profile gives it playfulness and maneuverability without loss of stability, and a dense ash wood paired with springy, mid-weight poplar further aids the strength-to-weight ratio.
