About
The front pike remains in the rarer family of salto skills on beam, owing to both its difficulty and the fear of not showing a clear enough pike shape and having the skill recognized as a tuck…which you are probably performing elsewhere in the routine. Also, it’s more challenging to connect out of for bonus, and what’s the point of a skill if you can’t get bonus combination?

Still, the E value does prove irresistible to the most acrobatically confident daredevils.
