Nivek, did he say this in regards to the est or reflex versions or does it apply to both? It makes sense to me since the malavita moved up to 30% glass and the high back does feel a good amount stiffer in hand. Also, how would you say the company's compare to the malavits and salomon chiefs stiffness/response wise?
Just the opposite. Cleared it with one of the reps over the weekend. Despite what the site says, the Cartel is now softer than the Malavita.
And the Genesis is not meant to fill the hole of the Prophecy by the way. Its not meant as a stiffer all mountain binding. Its a softer high tech binding for those that have shit tons of money and want the cool shit. Usually that guy isn't a great rider and getting all the cool shit usually means a stiff binding, which is beyond their ability. Hence the Genesis, cool shit and soft so it's not beyond the rich new guy.
K2 Company's. No crazy tech to break, just a simple, responsive, damp, and functional binding.
