i could be completely wrong, but from what Ive been told, that's about it.
Burton has that as well now.

binarypie I took the plunge and picked up a custom v-rocker. Click the link in my sig to read my ongoing review.

Now I will say it takes a lot of adjustment to go from a camber to a reverse/mix camber board. The pop is still (my old custom vs v-rocker custom) there but its just different. Its really hard to explain.

bluetroll one thing that has come to mind with being able to demo a bunch of RC boards is that you really need to try it for yourself. There's just so many variations of this tech that they all ride quite different.

Next year, It'd be great to see you pick park boards for example, and do a shootout of each brand's alternative to traditional camber. Looks like K2 is going flat next year, with various rocker widths at the tip and tail. It would probably be hard to get all those boards, but it would be cool nonetheless.

Despite the fact that a lot of snowboarding is preference, there's still a superior design in the mix somewhere. I'm happy with R.C. and TBT so far.

Pyrofeed So I guess there are 5 categories. Regular camber, reverse camber, rocker camber, camber rocker, and zero camber. That makes it a lot easier thanks. So the only real difference is what other techs the companies put into their specific boards. I have been enlightened.

Pyrofeed But is there a difference between the individual company's takes on all of these shapes?
02-09-2010 08:28 PM
oxi There's normal rocker, every company has a different name for it but pretty much all the same idea. It's only useful as a pure park/pow board imo. Then there's rocker and camber combined, almost every company has their own variation of it and call it something different. They're designed to give you the benefits of both worlds, all of them ride differently and which one is better is up to the person riding it. But the idea behind all of them is to give you the float of rocker with the edge control of camber.
