The Flow Solitude is the answer to all your split decisions. This all-mountain, directional board boasts a Pow-Cam Camber profile which is set back and flat between the feet, camber under foot with a rockered nose and flat tail. With this profile you get float in the nose with pop, snap and power in the flat and camber sections. Its slightly tapered tail is designed to be ridden on all conditions and on any terrain but really shines in the side country and deep powder. The Solitude also features Split-Tech technology which consists of tip to tail ABS stringer running through the middle of the board. This allows the board to be split down the middle without having to seal the edges after so you can easily turn your snowboard into a split board if you so desire. Bamboo power beams in the Re-Flex wood core add extra torsional support and the OC Kush Technology places 3 unique urethane features in the base, sidewall and topsheet to create the smoothest riding and strongest board on the mountain. Throw in a super-fast and durable Graphite base and you've got the ultimate all-mountain ripper or backcountry charger.
A:Based on your weight, ability and what you are looking to do on this board the 164 would be my recommended size for you.

Q: What is the waist width of the 164cm solitude ? I'm a size 13 boot and want something for powder to ice. The differences in the "wide" boards seem to only be about 1 cm wider. Front foot 16 degrees back foot 0-5 degrees. All the stiff wide boards are twice what this costs. 6'1 190lbs and very comfortable on a 156w skate banana but want something longer and more aggressive for New England to Oregon.
A:The waist on the 164 is 25.9cm. Most wide boards come in around 26.6-26.9cm at the waist. If your rear foot stance angle was slightly more aggressive 10-15 degrees, you probably would not have a toe drag issue but at 0-5 degrees it is possible.

Q: Hello there, I'm ready to buy the Flow Solitude but I'm debating on the size, either 158 or 161. According to my weight 171 lbs and height 5'8, the ideal size would be the 158. I'm looking for an all mountain board with special performance capabilities in the powder as pow surfing is my thing. I understand that this bad boy performs well in powder. Having said that, would you recommend me going for the 161... would it really make a difference in pow performance than the 158? Thanks in advance for your guidance!
A:If you are looking to surf the powder the 161cm will offer you more flotation and surface area when it is really deep.

Q: Good morning, I am trying to make a decision between the Flow Solitude and Maverick in sizes 161 and 164. Quite frankly, I can't tell why the Maverick costs more than the Solitude. Could you please provide the nose and tail width? Thank you. Eric Skaar

A:The maverick is more of a big mountain backcountry board where the solitude is more of an all mountain. The maverick is stiffer and more aggressive. It also has a lighter and more responsive core. The nose length of the Maverick is between 23-23.5cm depending on the size, and the tail length is 20cm. The Solitude has a tip length between 21-22cm and a tail length of 19cm in the 158 but it's 20cm in both the 161 and 164.
