REALLY?).

On paper I like what the K2 Company IPO has to offer but don't really know how they will ride.

Any help/suggestions? FYI these will be going on a 2013 Forum Destroyer Doubledog. Burton Ambush boots.
The 2013 Cartel wont be too stiff. The highback is softer torsionally now so when you want to get out on the tips or tweak a grab you can. Personally I'd go for IPO's. The combo of the stiff frame and soft highback feels super good in my opinion. Perfect for a freestyley ride and they'd match up well with the Destroyer.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
