this had nothing to do with sponsoring anyone, it was another facebook like-us, share-us give-us free promo 'giveaway'

Those look like a really good way to hurt yourself

I am sure that being america, you will get your backside sued for selling a product that clearly does NOT do what it says on the tin...

You claim it is easier to jump and do rails with these, so the 1st person that falls and sues will own you, as that is clearly not how it is, to jump you must be a good rider, and the fact that most people can only jump with both feet strapped solid, just look for fails for one footed jumps to understand, and you have a problem, same goes for rails, you reduce stability while riding rails if you have movement in the bindings, thus making it much harder and not easier to do.

As a result of such claims you are leaving yourself wide open, and i haven't even started on the product failing when suffering a heavy landing on a jump, which could cause some real serious injury...!!!

Best thing you can do, is to find a mug to buy the business and take the money and run...!!!

The only think I could think of is how a skateboarder re-positions their feet while riding. Which, even on a snowboard, would have some advantages and provide a very different feel.

However, I also feel like this could cause a lot of other issues. There are times when you actually want to use the leverage a static mounting system gives you. This seems like it would be next to impossible to do with your system.

Finally, a huge trend right in binding tech is supporting board flex. Or rather getting out of its way. The problem with most risers, including your system, is that they complete negate any of this technology.

Beginner and intermediate riders may find the rotation nice for lift lines and the such. Although I'd say proper lessons and correct form will help more than allowing a rider to "cheat".

I think you are on to something with a dynamic food placement. However, I think this execution wont work for today's aggressive rider.

HAHAHHAHAHAHA I just watched thier videos....If you havnt please take the time to view them.....

I think we are all looking at this the wrong way, maybe the design is supposed to make snowboarding monumentally harder.

you reset your feet on a skateboard because they have moved.

imo there is not one scenario, one discipline within snowboarding where these things would be 'better'...but, the market will decide

Well, if you're into twirling your entire run top to bottom then maybe.

BA posted about this product on his site way before this post happened today. I feel like DCSnow has taken his trolling to a new level :P
