Future camber concpets
 
After talking with a friend today he said that Burton is working on a rocker/camber/rocker or camber/rocker/camber design for 2014. Since we mainly ride Neversummer, who have the rocker/camber design, how would an added rocker add or take away from the ride of the board?

What on earth are you talking about?

Camber design

Burton is apparently working on a double rocker/camber, my friend had already seen the concept for it a week or so ago at the mountain.

think of an additional banana in the C2 camber of Lib tech

Don't worry captain patronising I know what rc tech is.

Adding an extra banana? Always good if you're baking a cake :thumbsup:

An extra banana in my snowboard? Now you are just blowing my tiny mind :laugh:

I hope you would know what it is. Its a tongue twister just saying that many rock/camber's in the design. This is why I raised the question, how would it add or take away from how the board performs?

eventually boards are going to have bases that look like ripples in water the more camber sections they keep adding.

apparently, but what's the point?? :confused: I get the concept of a rocker, rocker/camber but what does it add to the performance is what I'm trying to understand.

Sounds a little crazy but hey thats what we said about reverse camber. I think NeverSummer's RC is the best performance out of a reverse board!

Contract Snowboards look into their Snake Transition technology.

Neutral, I wouldn't have been able to predict the way the NS's vario-whatzit would behave in practice, I think adding an extra level of complexity can only be evaluated on the test slope. Speaking of which, if any snowboarding companies would like a volunteer to test their stuff, I've got some free time.... :D

Seriously though, I hope their testing is showing some actual benefit. I'd hate for it to be like adding yet another blade to their razor just so they can sell "new and improved".
