Triple8Sol No other edge tech seems to be nearly as good as magnetraction on ice. It's licensed to Rossignol and Smokin. There may be others, but not that I've heard of.

Not a big deal though, seems to have been straightened out.

djsaad1, I'd like to put in a good word for Smokin' really cool company that make bitchin boards.
What kind of Smokin do you have?

Argo Love my smokin kt-22. I'm surprised it didn't break when I buffed it yesterday....

djsaad1 So its Rossignol, Jones, and Smokin?

Thanks guys, I will go take a look at their boards.

easton714 Rossignol is a good option.

Underrated boards in general. The Rossi Experience and Krypto are finalists for me - and the only finalists with Magnetraction (which is a plus).

volboy23 I would stay away from Burton as far as looking for progressive edges. I demo'd one of the boards with this earlier this year and then rode a gnu rider's choice and a never summer legacy and they both made burton's edges feel like they didn't exist. I haven't tried the other brands, but never summer does hold well in the various conditions i have ridden so far, which is on the ice coats.
