Winner of the needlessly deceptive feature name goes to K2 with the Catch Free Rocker, which really means the board is 90% flat camber... but raises (or rockers) just the nose and tail contact points. Which when compared to any regular camber board, the contact points are debatably different on a completely flat table surface... let alone on a snow covered hill.

If I hadn't looked at this in a store and realized it was actually flat, I wouldn't have bought it. Actually, I wouldn't have even considered it because I didn't want to buy my son a rocker. Imo rockers don't teach good board fundamentals as well as a regular camber, or even a flat (like this board).

K2 - turn off the political news and skip the marketing spin. We get 'rocker' sells, but so do other things.

Am I the only one?

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Am I the only one not overjoyed with the fact these rip apart in the toe? I've had two pair, and both had the wool rip apart from the rubber sole within the first two weeks of use. I've also had both pair develop inch+ holes on both sides of the toe as the wool fibers compact and then rip apart while walking. I've hardly got any wear on the sole bottom and the top is tattered. Really cuts down on being able to wear them outside, even for a short walk to the mailbox in the snow. Certainly not an eco-concious shoe design. I really wish the longevity was better.

Aside from all that, these are massively comfortable. The insole is deluxe and they are warm. Grip well, look good.
