Simple?

However, in general I think that the Carve ought to be the bestseller, providing more everyday fun for the average rider. At the end of the day a fast,blanced and relaxed ride with good turning characteristics is what puts a smile in the face of most riders.
Tried the carve 121l in Tufskin. Absolutely hated it. If you do opt for a carve, do yourself a favor and get it in wood. I'm convinced the Futura would jibe better for anyone who already has a good carving technique on lock.

PS. I ride a Futura 93l in wood which is brilliant, jibes so well.
