French magazine snowsurf has dropped reviews for the Pintonic and Pocket Rocket 2.0! You can google translate them, but here is a crappy quick translation.
Pocket Rocket:Longboard freeride carving.
A new board inspired by the discontinued Puzzle, with yet again a "longboard" spirit that you feel well even in the "small" 164 size. No suprises, it's quite a powerful board with great edge hold that makes you want to play, even dance on the snow, at least the biggers guys who appreciated it more the lighter-and maybe more freestlye-testers. Its a board that enters the turn pretty centered on the two feets, must driven fast and strong and is always perfectly on tracks in the turns-Korua's trademark who never makes trade-offs on turn quality. And it's true that for precision carving, this Pintonic is quite the board! It's also a board with a great snow feel, one of those that make you smile, with a quite forgiving character-at least if you strong enough to bend it. Percfect in powder due its shape, it's a board very enjoyable board due it's nimbleness, relative torsion flex and its ability to please the rider with comfort and a sense a safety. Not the kind of the board that will let you down or surprise you, it's a longboard for long curves amateurs (even if it's quite lively in smaller ones!) who are looking for a quality freeride and carving board to do it all without limitations.
I am myself torn between a TF57 and CR59, which I'll pick and ride next week. Part of me is like "If it carves hard enough, I might as well have a bit more freestyle playfulness, specs are not that different" and part of me is like "Just go for it, you want it because it turns well don't stop halway there, it's a quiver board anyways"Snow wakeboard (no licence required)
Koriua is never shy when you it comes to challenging the norms and offer "different" shapes, but this Pocket Rocket is certainly the most crazy noes the Swiss brand has ever come up with. Ultra short, super thick, you need not be too narrow minded to accept to ride it. But all the tester who got on it where convinced! Absolutely uncommon, this UFO is heartwarming straight out of the box. A board that makes people talk, but that you soon forget under your feets, super stable and really fun. Incrédible in small turns, it can jump terrain with a lot of pop and when you start going for it more seriously it handles speed asburdly well. This board that "fits in a golf car" turns out to be pretty grippy on piste, able to lay big carves as much as "godille". It has no pop to speak of, but since you have practically nothing underfoot it's playful in freestyle. Even if it's super not balanced in this area, it's wide and stiff nose absorbs everything. The Pocket Rocker really shines in powder and play in between the trees, a real eel…
