These things will make you carve harder and ride faster. When trying this out you should use long and wide trail crossing turns medium to fast speed and drop lower in your stance at the knees. If you need me to explain anything further just ask.
This may sound stupid but how does one increase their 'edge angle' when turning? Like what exercises should I do to have this locked down?
