Default New Snowboard Binding Design

I've been working on a snowboard binding design and am looking to see what people think of it. The binding has a hinge which allows it to pivot along the length of the board (tip to tail) about 5 to 10 degrees. The hinge allows a shin s...trap to be put on the highback which gives support on toe edge turns (without the hinge you can't shift your weight tip to tail). Toe edge support is taken out of the board and your leg and is put in the binding. I'm not sure if you can put pictures here but have some up at Home Page . Let me know what you think.

The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive The Rocker Binding Revolution all I can ask is why?

What I think is that the technical details of your design are irrelevant until you have clearly stated the benefit that it provides. Why is your binding better than the bindings we are riding now? Not just different -- better. If it's not appreciably superior, then I don't care about it, regardless of its eccentricities.

You know, you can spam post this exact same paragraph all over the place, just like you did with Boston Mills/Brandywines facebook (yeah I'm from Ohio too), but it doesn't change the fact that you're trying to revolutionize something that doesn't need to be. Right now your design looks heavy (yes I know it's a prototype, it's still more junk to increase weight no matter what), uncomfortable, takes longer to strap in, restrictive to ankle flex as BA said, and completely unnecessary. This is never going to take off, no matter how much you post it.

I'm so confused as to what the fuck that thing is supposed to do, and why? Why do you need your bindings to rotate on hinges? Confusion?

???

Because engineering students like to over complicate simple things.

So after reading BAs article, is the only upside to this "invention" the ability to tweak your grabs to the moon and back? Otherwise, the hinges are just flapping around freely? I can't see any freestyle rider getting behind this. And adding the shin strap seems like its going to limit angulation carving and force inclination carving while toeside.

As said above, where is this tech going to provide an advantage???
