Korua Stealth 2018 Review by The Good Ride

The Korua Stealth feels like a Tranny Finder with a super long nose giving it more of a directional feel.  I Personally preferred the Tranny Finder over the Stealth but If I had a 156 that might have been much more fun for my specs and riding style.  Where I feel the Pencil 164 and Puzzle 161 ride smaller than their size the Stealth felt bigger than a 163. So if you want lots of camber underfoot but a big nose that will float in deep powder then this could work.

I really loved this board, I have the 2019 in a 163. Compared to my older Ride 163, the Stealth actually has about 10-15cm less running length between the contact points due to a lot of length being taken up by the rockered nose, so this actually felt to me like it rides shorter than 163. I find it to be quite nimble in the trees due to the short tail and shorter length between the contact points, and it carves like all Koruas-like a dream! It's a fairly wide board but it feels pretty quick edge to edge and it's nice to be able to not worry about booting out on carves, even with a size 11 boot. I've been lucky enough to ride it in a foot or so of great fresh powder and it floats really well too. I have even ridden it switch some and while it's obviously not ideal it can pull it off. I would really recommend this board for any bigger rider that loves powder, trees, and turning!
