Hi all - Looking for input on what size Mojo to get. I'm 6' and weigh about 160 without gear. I have always ridden 156-160 cm. boards but that was for years of resort and side-country use. Had a first real season doing backcountry last year using my 160 Burton Triumph (tapered) and the K2 Approach ski's. The set-up worked well but want to get away from the dual set-up and was a little undersized carrying the extra weight of the skis. Mainly trying to decide between the 161 and 166. And if it matters I mainly ride in Oregon but will be doing some trips to wherever. Thanks!

I'm about your size and weight (a bit shorter) and I'm riding the 171. It doesn't feel long in the least, in fact with the weight of these boards i think a 176 would be my ultimate mojo.
I tend to ride longer boards but this 171 feels like a mid 160 for me (if not shorter - I shit you not) it turns on a dime. So for your request I'd def. go 166 and if I knew ya better I might say don't consider anything shorter than the 171
Obviously, my take comes from a no spin (while hucking) zone. yet I do huck.

I am 5'11'' and weigh about 135 lbs. I just bought the mojo 166. i only a have few turns on it, but i feel like it is the right size. My resort bored was a 160cm Arbor and on first impression i can't really tell a difference in length. Like I said i haven't really put very many turns on the 166 though. I went with a little bit longer size and so far i'm happy with decision.
