Manufacturers description
The Khyber, Priors go to powder and tree board, has a wide nose, generous sidecut, and plenty of taper; these features provide excellent float and manoeuvrability in powder conditions and trees. Amazingly, the Khyber will still perform on hardpack, groomers and variable snow pack thanks to its mellow rocker camber combination profile which gives you the confidence to ride the board back to the lifts or on variable snow days. The Khyber makes riding tight trees and critical sections easier than you’ve ever dreamed possible.

The Khyber is named after an off-piste area on Whistler Mountain that is legendary for its treed powder stashes. There is a great view of the Khyber zone from the Prior factory.

Hybrid Rocker Profile: Provides flotation and predictability in powder and silky smooth transitions from edge-to-edge with excellent edge control. 2-4 mm of traditional camber underfoot provides energy from turn-to-turn.

Rider Type: Riders of all abilities looking to maximize their powder pleasures with a versatile stick. It naturally suits riders who demand no back leg burn and a quick-turning, surfy ride.

Best For: Tight Trees, powder, gladed runs, pillow lines, chutes, backcountry.

Strenghts:
Snappy edge to edge, fairly stiff flex from the front foot thru the trail.

Weaknesses:
Not really a freestyle deck.

Summary:
Short wideish nose, nice taper a tight sidecut make this a slashing machine! Much more powerful and confident then expected. Fun ride, would be excellent is almost and conditions. 156 might be on the small side for me in the pow. Today was a typical New England day.
