the rocker helps the float obviously, but I think the side effects tech makes a big difference.
Side Effects
Lengthening the surface area at the tip and tail contact points improves edge-hold and allows the board to plane easier in powder. Enjoy a livelier feel and enhanced grip on groomers along with added float for overhead days.

I live in Japan and ride lots of deep pow. The Sherlock has become my quiver killer since it handles the pow like a champ, all with a freestyle shape. On the deepest day of the year, I was still riding the 160 with a centered stance (I normally ride a 163). Going into the steeps the snow was seriously nipple deep and that's standing on the board nipple deep!
