BTX is Banana with Magne Traction

MTX is Magnetraction only.

BTX is available on the RC, but is getting harder to find out there.

Thanks for that mate i was getting so confused looking at them lol.

Any thoughts on this board? Ive been riding a 157 society for the last few years.

Mainly piste work, some off piste and the very rare run through the park.

I ride an RC MTX everywhere, I don't know about reverse camber on really steep stuff, but it would be good for park. I really really like this board, and would buy another.
