The regular DH has slimewalls too, everything in their ATV and Mobility lines have the slimewalls.

It's got a different sidecut to the DH, but how different I have no idea whatsoever. It's also got more of those carbon thingys in it! Again no idea what that is though. I can copy off their website but I don't know what they mean, maybe someone else will know.

The DH2 has more carbon stringers and the sidecut is blended (big-little-big). More progressive turning and a little more pop. I'd pay 20 more bucks for the DFC.

Here's the difference between the 08 Model DH and DH DFC (I now have a 155 DH DFC and a 159 DH). The sidecut is the same on the boards, the difference lies in the top sheet from last year. The top sheet on the regular DH is a smooth surface while then top sheet on the DFC is actually a dual fiber. If you look at the DFC, it looks like it is pinstriped and the pinstrips actually are raised off the board giving you added traction and no need for a stomp if you use one. The board feels stronger when you are sliding rails and boxes and a little more solid on hits. I did use my buddies regular DH a few times (155), and I felt mine was a little stronger. And to asnwer why I have 2, I use the 155 for days in the park, which is almost every day, and the 159 for days of just cruising the slopes. Now I am not 110% sure about the 09 line, but I believe it is the same thing. My girlfriend has a Crush DFC from 2 years ago and the top sheet is identical to the regular Crush from that year, but as of last year, the DFC editions had different top sheets, and different color designs.

side cut is quadratic for 2009 ride dh /// 2008 is radial side cut.

more pop with extra stix on tail.for 2009 dh 2

nose is more skate style ..2009

2008 is more all mountain. style ( nose )

slimewalls same for alla.

when you ride a 2008 ride dh radial side cut and later ride a dh2 transition side cut ..you feel the diferens !!!!

i dont know wish one is best but for ride transitions in high speed diferent kiker or hits at same time ... dh 2 2009 is best.

radial is good and easy to rode both ways ...

but is personal matters...i think.

i like radial side cut. with even core and dierctional flex twin tip.

i have been eyeing the dh2 as well but like you i was unsure about the difference. i think i might be picking one up now but 159 might be too small for me
