Space technology in boards - trick or treat?
Rome's Sales and Marketing Director Europe:
"To increase that lively, snappy feel when we pop off lips, slash walls of pow, spin onto a rail, or ollie ropes, we've innovated three new pop-enhancing technologies for 2011 on-snow fun: HotRods (ultralight Kevlar or Carbon tubes milled into the core), PressurePop Technology (energy transmitting plates built from Kevlar and/or basalt, that radiate from under the bindings to target points in nose and tail), and PowerBars (double layers of carbon or basalt that pre-form into a "V" cross section for maximum ollie/nollie pop)."
Have they got NASA scientists working on board construction or something? Is this for real? Has anyone got an opinion on whether all this new technology innovation works or whether its all just a big marketing war between the big boys?
