The forgiving nature of C2 I think has made me a better rider lately because I'm more likely to push myself s little more with it (I'm getting older and don't like to crash hard these days), however there are times when I find the ride a bit lacking especially at high speed. I'm really looking forward to trying a C3 board and seeing the more towards a more cambered profile. If they can bring back a camber feel but still give me a catch free ride I would be sold for sure.

I'm not looking to go back to regular camber. This weekend I rode with a couple other guys who were on old school LibTechs with full camber.. They flew down the hill and were hard to follow at times, but I also saw them catch edges and wipe out at least 3 or 4 times... I on the other hand kept up pretty well and never had a crash from a caught edge, so I'm still convinced in the benefits of a hybrid tech...I do think there is some room for improvement though and I'm excited to see how it progresses.
85km/h. Not bad for an old man.
