rocker tech

I've been riding with magna-traction for a few weeks and am really liking it, but have noticed it can be a little bit grabby at times. To the point where i almost catch an edge if I'm not careful. Would the combination of mtx with btx help solve that issue?

Also, i've yet to try a rocker and am wondering if it makes turn initiation noticeably easier.

Edge catch really is technique. But magne can make it more catchy. Rocker makes turn initiation easier. The board is already flexed into the shape that a normal board ends up in. So its that much less effort for the turn.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
