Quick Flip Technology
 
For those of you who remember from earlier this season, I've been working on a lightweight quick entry snowboard binding system. It's a set it and forget it design that is super convenient.
I finally got some footage of the prototype in use and decided to make another tech talk video.
Always open for suggestions and comments, so check it out and let me know what you think!

Thank you! Good to hear that I made a big enough impression for you to remember my last post.
And thanks, couldn't get that to work. Haha
Yep, got a haircut and wore a hat this time! Also much more excited about this now that I got to ride the CNC machined prototype for a season. It's been sweet!

i give you props for:

1. sticking with it

2. admitting the downfalls you see (in the promo)

3. if this is useful for anyone

criticism:

bottle opener shit is stupid. who cares. lame.

saying "i've put 20 days on these so they're good to go" is just bullshit. if you think you've got something real then kick out 20 or so pairs to a bunch of riders better than you and wait and see what everyone else has to say about comfort and durability.

thats all i got

I totally agree with everything shred said...

You're welcome.

Ha yeah. It was your honesty, maturity, and willingness to be open to criticism from your first thread on it that was memorable. Then there was the whole haircut discussion haha.

Plus, it's an interesting and viable concept. That doesn't often happen with new snowboard gear/gadget related ideas. Especially when it comes to bindings.

Shred's suggestion of cranking out 20 or so pairs for testing by others is solid. Do that if you can. Diversify the testers.

Eh the bottle opener is like that little "oh, and look there's this" sort of thing. I can see it being a perk to the adult beverage consumers of the snowboarding world (although I am not exactly one of them).

fyi to embed just copy the characters after the v= or whatever it is then insert into the YT brackets provided by the icon link on the post.

Without economies of scale, they are $800/prototype. I was lucky enough to have gotten two for the price of one using my financial aid refund check. 20 pairs is super unrealistic for me at this point in time.
I said 20 days or more, and it's actually probably closer to 30, but that doesn't include yard sessions either and I don't like exaggerating.
Also live in an area where very few people care about snowboarding (Maryland) and we don't get much snow or days on the hill. My crew consists of 1 dedicated boarder (girlfriend), a couple people who go a couple times a year, and a skier.
Thanks for the input though.

Yeah I agree also, you need to send some out for testing or get people to give to small fee (10 dollars shipped ) to help pay for the materials to make it. I know that it kind of sucks but without more people riding them and breaking them or not breaking them you won’t know what to do. R&D is always hard but I am sure if you ask people on here will help you out by paying for shipping and let you know what they are like.

close to the last fucking thing you want to be doing with a (aluminum?) part of your bindings is opening bottles with it... snap the tab of that thing and now your bindings don't work. stupid.

if you can't afford to give away 20 pairs then i doubt you can afford to sell them. :dunno:
