i will try to demo a c3 in Feb. been mainly riding a billygoat c2btx that has more mellow btx and mtx and truthfully have not caught an edge yet, last week did a day on old cambered twin and have not caught an edge in about a year and half...but could certianly feel edges want to engauge more readily.

as far as bombing high speed, the goat feels darn stable and more forgiving (i.e., more wiggle room) vs cambered is solid stable and less forgiving... however when haulling A, one should have no fear of catching an edge, so catching an edge doesn't factor in.

also mtx really does not factor in catching edges, its more about grippage when on edge and different amounts of mtx do have an effect.

thus imho catching an edge and going down is more about technique and paying attention...it is not about camber or mtx...though btx does factor in
