This board is part of the 2017 Gateway series. The change is not just graphics but the construction, the flex, the shape which is designed for more stability in higher speeds and for ease on slide initiation.
This board was the premium downhill board but now is used mainly for LDP. (check out the Long Trek videos)
This years version is a bit smaller, it is still 10 inches wide, but the length has been brought in 2 inches to 42 inch.
Too many features to mention. You can take this board up to amazing speeds, to push all day and cover hundreds of kilometers. It is solid, no flex, even if you are 100+ kgs this board will not wilt.
