Please explain to me how a skinny pant has better mobility than a regular fitted pant (note, I'm not saying baggy). The range of motion with a tight fit pant is reduced.
This is why companies like Holdend and L1 use the term "tailored". Its cut to match the shape. Also we aren't doing high kicks on snowboards unless you're doing one footers. And in that case, Nick V. He seems fine doing it. Oh and Tuck Knee board slides. Look at the guys that tweak the shit out of grabs and jibs. 60% of them were tight. If it really limited mobility enough to effect snowboarding do you think they'd keep doin it?
