Briefly, I love the old rockered-shape, and it will still be ridden on really deep days, but the new shape is even better when steepness and variable conditions prevail. Not sure what else to say besides, It fucking rips! Kudos Daniel!

I have some weekday access to Monarch. I would be stoked to get your opinion on the 172. A long-boarders review, if you will. Off topic, what’s up with the gun-toting ginger attempted-rapist deal at Monarch? I hope this kid is caught and/or given some serious slope-justice. My $ is on him being from within a 100-mile radius of DFW at 10 to 1, and the over at +250 miles from Amarillo. Go Ohio State! January 4, 2015 at 3:44 pm #776975 Taylor 776 Posts Thanks Perm. Colorado and its early snow is treating me right. Shredding and board testing sounds like a ton of fun. Shoot me a msg and we’ll sort dates. Later this month and beyond is best for my work schedule. Or I can come to WC on Saturdays. Yeah, the Sawatch sex offender. Let’s hope he gets caught. @sun_rocket January 4, 2015 at 10:33 pm #777038 bkooy 9 Posts Hey Permnation, can you describe the rocker profile on version 2.0 a bit? From the website it looks like camber with early rise tips but it’s a tad vague. Curious as to how it’s different from the previous version and how that affects powder performance. Many thanks.

Late this month will work for sure. bkooy wrote: Hey Permnation, can you describe the rocker profile on version 2.0 a bit?

Thanks for your response. I just got done with a 10 day bender at the shop twisting DINs and have tomorrow off. A picture of 2 old models and 2 new models base to base will show the difference. It is camber between feet with early rise rocker at tips. I will post some comparison pics tomorrow.

Many thanks. Hope the above pics help and show the difference in profiles of the old and new freeride models. Due to a slow snow year at Wolf Creek, my powder days have been limited, number-wise and terrain-wise. So far what I have experienced on the freeride 2.0 is just as good or better than the 1.0 when on a sustained pitch in soft conditions. The board is just “there” and capable of whatever the rider’s input may be. Both 1.0 and 2.0 have that feeling with the 2.0 more eager to gobble up vert down the fall line. We have some serious flat-management with lots of great lower angle meadow skipping between the goods. There is more float on the 1.0 with the big rocker in this style terrain. To help with this, I have sized up on the 2.0 to the 172 from mainly riding the 167.

I already have an all round board that I like so am inclined more to the high float powder version. Time to keep an eye out on gearswap. Thanks Permnation. January 7, 2015 at 5:51 am #777282 Taylor 776 Posts Yeah, that’s more than a little bit of camber. I’d love to hear their rationale. As I’ve said before, the Furberg guys deserve the benefit of the doubt. @sun_rocket January 8, 2015 at 12:48 am #777346 HansGLudwig 601 Posts @permnation That’s a really nice comparison shot up top. Now I want one! If I could juust get that grand in my bank account to ship one to my house. @taylor Don’t forget putting the two halves together doubles the look of the camber hight. On my screen, the camber was 2 1/2 cursor ‘arrows’ high and the slider puck was two ‘arrows’ high. That means t the camber is just over half the hight of the pucks. I don’t have my split with me at the moment but, pucks are ≈ 1 cm high; so we have ≈ 5 mm of camber hight. That’s less than any of my resort boards and on a par with my Fish.

If you factor in +/- .5mm, you are right on! Thanks for your input. Hope to hear you are on a furberg in the future.
