Talking s- type rail design

I know it not in the lineup anymore ( sad) but i am curious about the s-type's rail design. More specifically the "double rail".
I am referring to the small flat just under the tucked in rail , which extends from mid board and extends back to the tail.
This board is so manuverable , to the point of being nervous (as Boards magazine referred to it ).
Its also hard to catch the rail and trip over it like a harder rail design.
I expect that this double rail is what makes the boards so loose, and subsequently good for supercross, and that why it was designed into the s types.
And there tradeoffs, does it effect early planing and or pointing at all?

thanks jeff aka
