It doesn't eliminate it , it just reduces the pressure needed a lot. If its not deep powder ( 20-30cm ) you need no rear pressure, if its 40cm+ you need a little rear pressure.

The powder boards ETM made require zero rear pressure, you can have all you weight on the front leg in powder and it still pops the nose up.

ETM on his board, I was there on this great day 1 of 3 big days in 1 week!!
