The Raven looks great, except after loving her Voile RX 154 and now loving her Burton Anti-Social and NOT loving her Prior Brandywine, I think she is a devotee of taper. Like 1-2 cm of taper, not a wimpy 3 mm. Also, the Raven is pretty narrow in the waist. My wife has one speed on the descent, and it ain't warp. If she's gonna generate float it will be from board surface area, not from charging. :wink: A 24.5 or 25+ cm waist is needed.

Might as well buy Spantiks at that price.

The beveled edges on their new board is an interesting concept. Kind of along the lines of furberg but without changing the shape of the board. I think we'll be seeing contact points addressed a lot more in the future with more furberg type hybrids. I've never seen this Jones' concept done.

Interesting idea, but I wonder how much practical difference that is from just detuning the edges from the contact points out?

How can you drool over a board that ugly?^^ :wink:

To be honest, it looks quite unremarkable. What's the hype surrounding G3 boards besides being made by a skin mfg?

^^^Beat me to it, BG. I haven't even heard any good things about their skis. Without knowing anything about those boards, I'm guessing they are kinda lightweight, and will implode the first time they touch a rock.

Looks like cap construction. No Spark dynasplit adapter plates. With Joey involved, possibly aiming for a lightweight, mountaineering focused splitboard?
