as suggested 'cutting'


Explanation:
English translation for the first section is:

It would be impossible to make a freeride as cutting without double flex which softens the board (makes the board more flexible)..............

i.e. The double flex makes the snowboard more flexible wich therefore allows for it to cut sharper edges when free riding.

Hope this is of some help
