just as an FYI, K2 now owns Ride. I looked at the auto's this weekend and they look pretty good and feel nice. Definitely heavier than the Alpha's without question. The other thing I noticed was that the Alpha's high back was much stiffer than the K2's so it's obviously a bit more flexible for freestyle work but I'm not sure about the responsiveness factor though not having ridden them. Also in terms of the auto function it's cool, but like you said I tend to wait till tech is out for a couple of years before I buy it because the first years almost always have problems...
