Anything from Salomon yet? I've heard they will be offering at least one factory split next season. I'd buy a Sick Stick factory split for sure.....

It's a slightly tweaked version of what is on the Salomon Villain.

does it reverse when weighted? Kind of looks like rides camber to me. I wonder if tweekends will help it float.

It rockers when weighted right where the camber ends.

Why are companies using straight lines in the board profile like this to create the camber rather than curves? Does it do what K2's description says and make it ride like a flat board with increased pressure at the tip and tail? Ride's camber seems like quite a mellow version of this from looking at my Bezerker.

When you pick it up on edge you get all the edge between your feet engaging at once.
