Classics live forever. The original Condor, released in 2008, represented a feeling of freedom. The infamous board, which was created to open up and float bottomless powder, carries much of the distinction as the prestigious bird it boasts its name to. At 16.5cm tip and tail and 13.7cm underfoot it is the widest board on the RVL8 roster and lives far beyond all expectations. Deep snow only scratches the surface of what the Condor can conquer. Groomers, trees, park: The Condor’s width and length carries you at speeds far greater and holds you much tighter than any other board in its range. If you are looking for skiboards which provide cutting edge speed and stability in any condition, you’ve found your match. Due to it’s 13.7cm width underfoot the ‘Rockered’ and regular Condor models are recommended only for aggressive, intermediate to advanced riders.

Robert OShea –
In my short time skiboarding (2.5 seasons) I’ve ridden a lot on many different boards (Head Shape 94s, Revel8 Tanshos, Revel8 Mary Janes, Revel8 KTPs, Revel8 ALPs, Spruce 120s, and now the Condors). The Condors are by far the best, most versatile all-mountain boards I’ve ridden. I recently put them through their paces on a full day of riding at Mt. Bachelor. 20 inches of fresh snow, hard packed blue groomers, ungroomed blacks, a steep mogul run, cut-up chop, and finished the day in untouched trackless deep powder on a hike-able inbounds hill. The Condors handled it all. They flex great over uneven terrain, float well in the softest powder and hold an edge on aggressive carving on hard pack. They are confidence inspiring and stable and give me great feedback from the terrain without jostling me about like much stiffer boards have a tendency to do. They look great too. The massive width of the things will take some getting used to – my ankles and feet were a bit fatigued by the end of the day. They are not hard to get on edge, but do require more out of a rider to get them there. Ultimately, I would say this should be a "must have" board for heavier riders (170 lbs +) who want to ride skiboards all mountain and in variable terrain that includes deep, soft powder. Simply fantastic product and fantastic ride.
