1) For anyone that has had an opportunity to ride both, is there a noticeable difference, particularly in regards to carving fast, between the Raptor and the SL to justify the cost?
i dont have the exact comparison but i have a sl split and a heritage, and a raptor (last years)
the sl and heritage are really fun, turny, ykno jibbit here, poke it there, turn turn turn
the raptor is a killer you just point it where your headed and it eats up anything in the way, you can rilly lay into it, its not subtle, its a real charger.
i expect the new tech on it will just make it more so.
