Default Flatline Tech

So, what do all of you guys think about K2's Flatline tech? Good, bad, indifferent? Where does it excel and where does it lack in your opinion?

doesn't have the float or freedom of rocker, doesn't have the power of camber

it's a middle-of-the-road camber profile

tighter than rocker, loser than camber. I like it and think it's super solid.

I've never ridden it but the believer seems like it would be great off jumps and in the pipe. Spins would probably be a little better initiation too.

that's the exact reason I'm having my shop order it for me this year. Yes... order it... Apparently they didn't sell to well around here last year, so they didn't put in an order for any of them this year. Looks like if I see a believer around me this year after mine's been stolen, that one that I see will be stolen back

were you able to ride it in powder? If so, how'd it ride compared to a cambered board in pow?

You're not fighting the load so you can bend it easier to get float.

its all preference, certain shape deck doesnt make someone ride better or worst.

if you know how to ride, its all about getting use to and to like or dislike....

all preference....

thanks for comin out. I asked what you liked and disliked about it (you gave nothing), not if it will make me a better rider or not. I also asked how it compares to camber in powder, not ummm, "hey will riding flatline get me 20 pow days in ontario? because i'm really hoping my board makes miracles happen"

Flatline should be slightly looser than camber, tighter than rocker. Float should easier than camber but not as easy as rocker.

If you're not sure about switching to rocker, but want to, then zero cam is a good option, or if you want something more stable than rocker and looser than camber.
