Thanks to its new nose rocker, the Rictor is very easy to use. It's particularly forgiving in softer, more chopped up conditions. Though initially it feels a bit of a pussycat, when you ramp up the speed and the edge-angle, it can deliver the goods. It gives out very strong edge-grip, has a smooth, classy ride, and feels ideal for long, fast turns.
