The Omatic catalog landed in my lap the other day and I’m finally getting around to putting up a sneak peek of what they have to offer. They do have a unique rocker design that is a combination of 3 stage and triple base technology. The pics are a bit off as I took them with my camera phone. Hope everyone enjoys these.
So when I was looking at the cut away of the Extr- Eco there were a few things I noticed right away. The first being that its a rocker just like everyone else. The other being that it has a convex base that looks similar to Bataleons TBT. Right away the first thing that popped into my head was Burton Con Dom and Nitro Sub Pop.
They’re calling it B.S Technology and saying this about it,
“Our B.S Technology combines reverse camber with a convex base profile that lifts the edges off the snow or jib surface between the contact points while the center of the board remains directly in contact; creating a loose ride that eliminates the much feared armageddon edge-catch. Originally developed by our design robots to give a little somethin’ somethin’ to take the edge off those boilerplate park days and street rail sessions, B.S Technology provides increased maneuverabil8ity and a lively ride on all types of terrain. Our B.S technology has the greastes mix of ease and verstaility in any conditions. Wheteher you’re hucking 10’s, pressing a box or floating thru powder B.S tech provides a forgiving non-edge catching feeling that allows you to pull off even the most difficult tricks.”
This thing to me looks a little out there but as I’ve learned from all the other versions of rocker, reverse camber, and everything in between is that they all ride very differently. I’ll be hoping on this soon enough. The Extr-Eco will be offered in sizes 149, 151,154,157, and 160. So thats a pretty decent size run for everyone out there.
