Smokin Buck Ferton

I'm intrigued about the multiple tech combination on this one. Does anyone own one or ridden it thoroughly? Thoughts, comments, reviews, videos?


Thanks

So I just checked out the overview of their technology, and I'm confused why they'd put a more aggressive sidecut on a jib/park board...

The Mip and Buck Ferton has a less aggressive sidecut. I just find that strange. I also find it strange that their clash rocker tech is on boards they considered to be the best at everything... You'd think the flat boards would make more sense in that respect.

hybrid rocker/camber, like Smokin's clash rocker, is better for an all mountain board than a flat base shape.

I know that already, it just seems puzzling to me. K2 for example is selling their flat boards as more versatile...

Meh, so far I've liked hybrids more for an all around do everything ride.

Sidecuts, probably cause a jib board isn't being ridden that fast. So giving it a slightly more aggressive sidecut means you can turn more at a slower speed. A mellower sidecut at speeds means a little more stability cause you're not turning it super tight.

Snowboarding Is...

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

My Buck Ferton is scheduled to arrive Thursday and the hill opens Saturday. If both those go as planned I'll have some info then.

Ah, this makes sense. Good point.
