Banana Hammock is the only one I know.

Pow performance is off the charts.

Whitegold has one as well, Mott at Igneous also made one, and I know there's one more from some Euro company too but I can't think of the name.

That's actually something they were making for Guch for Volcom but with a Signal topsheet. Basically Guch saw what it was doing for Travis so said I want one.

That's right. I knew Guch was involved but couldn't remember the details.

There are so many ski manufactures with it across their line (Armada comes to mind with 2) and with rocker+camber it seems to take away from the poor hardpack performance.

Next for snowboards is concave bases stuff+RS+RC/Hybrid camber+ strange puck like contact points?

Do share.

I am talking about another design I have seen( cannot remember the small ski manufacture name,but some of the engineers that first worked with Shane McClonkey's skis? I think they left and started their own company). Small pucks, like a bulge, right at the outer edge of where the contact points are. For skis with tons of concave and reverse sidecut and rocker. Like a Bataleon TBT on steroids. Maybe Magnatraction is a better solution, but these looks cool. They had protos at SIA.

They say it is for grip in short bursts, so then when you go into the really deeps stuff, or jump, the rest of the ski performs. They assume ( protos) that with so much concave and rocker and sidecut, you would want this little bit of extra traction for icy entrances, or run outs.

Maybe Magnatraction is a better solution, but these look cool.

Oh it's a ski fuck those things I don't care what they're doing doesn't effect me. I thought you were talking about the new design Flows working on with impact gel on their already hybrid camber, concaved based deck.
