I think you've gotta know how to pressure the cambers at the tip and tail and really work them to your advantage. Push your knees outwards to help engage them, and also use good fore-aft movements through turns. ie: get forward initiating turn, move aft/back towards turn completion to really drive your edge into the snow so you don't skid (much).
^ I think I just quoted snowolf right there. Dunno where that thread is though Credit where credit is due

I've been on the NS for a few days now and I find that it holds an edge pretty well on hardpack (dust on crust) but at higher speeds it tends to let go. I've been attributing this to the light full-length detune I gave it, but now I'm thinking it may just be the limitations of the CRC profile.

and yeah TC is traditional camber. thanks for your input.

Yes, the idea is less edge catch, but also things like better float in pow.
Also there are many kinds of alternate camber tech... i've ridden just the one so take what i say with a grain of salt

TC - better edge hold (ice and otherwise) but less forgiving and more catch
RC - worse edge hold and has to rely additional tech (magnetraction, frostbite..etc), but a lot more forgiving doing freestyle, meaning less edge catch.

I do like my RC deck though. Where I ride there are a ton of natural features that have strange angles on take offs and landings. The RC def helps when you don't get it quite right and land a bit off.

|jojotherider||RC is less grippy on ice, but the magnetraction on your board will make up for some of it.|

i agree..i definitely was feeling a lot more confident toward the end of the day, but still everytime i got some speed i'd have this feeling that i gotta make sure im on an edge otherwise im gonna bust my ass..haha..so im thinking i need more time with the board.
on the other hand i know its a bit more forgiving than TC boards, but what about on icy conditions or hardpack?

|Dakota.D||Im in the same boat. Although after the first couple of runs it was night and day difference. Gotta love new technology!|
