Even my noob eyes can tell this thing is dramatically different than anything I've seen in stores (except the Volkl.) The whole thing is cambered except the scoopy nose. Super short tail and the edge goes for almost the entire board length. It feels like a Rossignol Experience mid section from tail to well past the front inserts. The only soft spot is the nose (about hand length) and by soft I mean feels like the rocker section of the raptor.... Great board for beginners and experts alike my ass...

P.S Lacroix is now on at i.Get.it
Good to see another KTR out there!

If I may ask, can you compare the Raptor and the Ride head to head for me? Like dampness, speed, edge hold on ice, etc...

Cheers...
