NeverSummer has their version of magnetraction, Vario Power Grip. I've heard it isn't as strong, but it still works. I won't have the opportunity to test it out myself until I buy a 2012 Evo, though.

I've ridden it, it works. It will get you through ice well enough. And then it won't be obnoxiously grabby when you do have some good snow to work with.

Vario Grip doesn't have the teeth that Magnetraction has, but I like the eway it works better. It has plenty of bite for most hardpack conditions, as long as you understand there's still a limit and you can still wash out..

Between MTX, Smokin' MTX and Variogrip, I'll go Variogrip. I haven't had the pleasure of experiencing Arbor's awesome un-blnded tri-radial sidecut, but I hear that works very well as well.

Since I don't ride ice very often, I'm always very leery on the shit. I have an 09/10 Evo and have almost never washed out on ice, but at the same time I know not to push it because there is a point where you can and will wash out and eat shit. As long as you pay attention to the conditions I think the NS Variogrip works fine, just don't expect it to be bulletproof.

For me Smokin's magnetraction works better than vario. My SL also has quite a bit more rocker that the superpark so that probably makes a difference too.

If you look under the Rocker & Camber symbol on any board's page, you see a tiny "and Vario Power Grip sidecut" text. Click on the Rocker & Camber jpg and... http://www.neversummer.com/images/ne...-explained.jpg
