Rihardszz Catching edge means when it gets connection to surface? I probably know this in my language but not on english.

steppinrazr Yeah no edge , it's meant to be super cheap and catch free for pure jib.

from stepchild site :
Quote:
This board was built to be destroyed. Unlike most jib specific boards, the street recession has no metal edges. This opens up more jib terrain like wood and aluminum rails where steel edges will catch and rag you down the stairs. With a tip to tail wood core construction this board can take the beating its given. This deck is designed for urban specific for the streets. Keep your mountain board fresh and let the Street Recession take the beating from the streets.
It's not something new though , Forum street dweller in 2005 i think and Burton dominant slick around that same year had a similar concept with edges only on some parts of the board.

I wouldn't use that on any slope though

I didn't research but... Really?
What kind of a board has no edge?!
What the fuck is THAT?

so it will be awesome to boardslide urban features without catching an edge....

But in the mountains it won't track at all...

Seriously even if you are short on cash, don't get that board, it will be useless anywhere else but the streets.

Out of all the boards you posted i'd get the nidecker or the atomic.
Both are decent, maybe an advantage to the nidecker for the sintered base.

G Steezy Zero camber, given more contact with the snow, in my opinion, grants the rider a larger margin of error. Connection to the mountain may be the wrong eay to put it, but is say that zero camber would be for a more advanced rider who knows what he wants to feel.

And yes street boards are gonna feel WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more flexible.

Addendum. Be jealous. I'm writing this after a good day in whistler.

Rihardszz OK! thanks guys.

but this board. Stepchild Recession 152 cm Street Freestyle Zero Camber ohne Kante Snowboard Neu | eBay

Does it somehow affect it that its ment to use on streets? (its harder and so on.)Under a video on youtube one guy said that it might have bad connection on mountain if the ground is icy or something like that.

the ranking between those 3 would only change accordingly to the model of board you'd compare.

ex:a nidecker megalight would be better than a stepchild recession or atomic piq.(high end model compared to entry level)
Yeah I wanted to say that, but I was literally naked about to take a shower.

Slightly subjective but I think most people would agree, at least somewhat:

Raven Drake Santa Cruz Nidecker Atomic Stepchild
