A new turning vid would be nice too
Yeah, I just sat through the Good Ride review, they didn't exactly nail that one.There ought to be someone having reviewed the Bullet Train besides the Good Ride...
It's just that those guys seem to have their mind set on a particular kind of board, which is kind of similar to what I like, and they go WAY more into detail on the boards they like, than the boards they can't really figure out. The whole thing was just about how they didn't like it. Just looking at the difference between the Korua guys and TheGoodride guys riding that thing, makes a valid point. I like riding the Korua boards in a certain way for a few laps, but then I go back to the boards I actually bought.I didn’t think it was a particularly bad review but the board looked like it was a lot to handle by their riding, and while I don’t pretend to be a better rider it would be nice with more input on the board.
When I asked Korua about it they simply said it was a much more aggressive board than the other boards in their line.
I dunno about expert and pro, it's more like addons. Pro means you get paid a salary by a company to ride their stuff. Expert doesn't feel general enough to me, it means you do at least one thing well, but can agree that you should be at least advanced in general to be called an expert at something.I think people forget that the scale goes:
Beginner, intermediate, advanced, expert, pro, godlike.
The Cartel ltd was similar. Difference from cartel x to cartel is 15% fiberglass reinforcement in the baseplate, doubt it’s very noticable in stiffness, and the x has more padding.I haven't ridden the new cartel X, but my understanding that Cartel became Cartel X and the new cartels are softer. Feel free to correct me if you have a different experience
The distance between channel holes on the flux discs are longer than other bindings, so more suited for the sliding stuff, and the sliders are made in that width. Flux just has a construction that works with it, unlike the ones with rubber pads that dont slide. Some older flux models work fine, like last years ds if you dont mount the rubber stuff, but flux put more rubber under a few models this year, so they dont slide as well anymore. The Burton channel has grooves, and the new channel is wider on Korua, including the notches to lock in stance. The board is solid, but haven’t tried the sliding yet, next year. The regular mounts don’t lock in as well, there can be some movement after a few sharp turns, but acceptable. Slider channel is def «early access», but I don’t mind. This stuff will never be for everyone.I was on Korua website and was looking at the Noserider. When I was looking at the explication video from Wolken about mounting bindings on the board, I had some concerns.
For a 1000$us board, is it me or the mounting bracket that you must force into the slider is kind of rubish for that tag price.
I had the feeling it made the board "cheap". Couldn't Korua asked Burton about their channel system and pay for the use of it?
And the fact that only 2 models from Flux were tested on the board got me thinking there as well.
Felt the board is still a concept but available now to buy with weird hardware and limited choice of bindings recommandation.
Feel like an unfinish product and nice concept, did Korua missed something there?
