Which is actually pretty retarded - weight is an easily measured characteristic. So there is no need 'quantify' it (i.e., put a number to non-measurable variable). They should just measure it - as it is, they are doing exactly the same as the advertising guys in the companies: Declaring things 'lightweight' without any basis.

What they are really doing is rating 'how heavy the board/binding/boot feels to them' - which is probably more influenced by a bunch of factors other than weight.
