Got to ride them yesterday in what constitutes a pow day out here this year. Had about 8" of pretty light snow and I rode them backless with the white bushings. Easily the most fun I have had on a board in a few years. Really surfy feeling but still plenty of response. Thee were some pretty sketchy ice patches where the snow had scrapped off and the control I had even going from one extreme of condition to the other was confidence inspiring. They really shone towards the end of the day as things got really bumpy/moguled out. I was able to cruise though that crud at a good speed even in super flat light as the bindings ate up the chop while still giving great feedback as to what was under foot.
I think it was said earlier in this thread but you only really notice how good these are after stepping back into a pair or normal bindings. I have a pair of K2 Uprises as well which I love. The canting and Harshmellow are fantastic but the IPOs always leave me smiling that much more.
