overall its a pretty awesome board. only thing that i found is that it gets alot of marks on it quick if you like to go to the park alot
does this boards writing on it come out...
does this boards writing on it come out when in the cold?
No, the top sheet logo is just super ninja like. Hard to see but once you see it, then BAM its too late, you just got ninja'ed!
I don't understand all the technical talk...
I don't understand all the technical talk like the camber and stuff, could you explain please?
Wow, it would be hard to explain it here. Please jump on live chat or give us a call and we would be happy to explain camber, banana, reverse camber etc. with you.
Camber: Skis and snowboards are traditionally shaped like a frown from the side. By doing this there is more pressure to turn the ski at the tip and tail where you need it when the board is on edge.
Rocker: They started making boards flat (no camber) and even bending up the tip and tail a few years ago. Mostly this is for backcountry/powder where you want the tip of the board to float rather than sink in deep snow. Also with rocker the board is already in an arc shape (decambered - smiley face) when tipped towards it's side in deep snow, putting the board into the turn shape right away.
Some other terms:
Magna Traction: wavy edge along the board developed by libtech. creates a bunch of pressure points along the board for grip on edge (rather than distributing pressure along the entire edge).
AmpTek: Rossignol's idea of rockering the tip and tail of skis/snowboards with some camber through the middle of the board. This is supposed to allow the board to rebound better between turns on hardpack.
Hope that helps!
