Default Signal Park vs Stairmaster

Can anyone tell me how the signal park (reg cam) compares to the Capita Stairmaster?

I have owned both.

The Signal is softer. Other than that they ride really similar. The 152 Park feels like a 148 Stair.

If you can, wait till next year and get the Park zero cam. It will have carbon in the tips.

i have both of them too. lets just say the park series leans more towards buttering and rails while the stairmaster (11) is towards the jump area. with park the ride feels like a k2 www 2010 flat in the middle (did miss this board when sold) feel but without the rocker at the ends. also more playful. stairmasters waist is wider so it feels stable and when landing, it's has more damping cause it's higher camber profile.

Thanks guys, I can't go with anything softer than the stairmaster. I was actually considering upgrading to the Stairmaster Extreme and was hoping the Signal Park would have been stiffer. I'll def wait for reveiws on the Park zero cam.

For that Description try a T1 or Rook. The Extreme felt pretty stiff to me and was a chore to jib even in a 148. From CAPiTA try the Green Machine FK or an Indoor FK.

Though I highly recommend the Signal Omni. Definitely more stable and jumpable than the Park. The 153 felt more stable, more poppy, and somehow more buttery than my 154 Indoor FK. Wavelength works. It's only $50 more than the Park too.

Similar, a touch stiffer. What makes the ride better is Wavelength. Power on edge with camber between your feet with playful tips.
