Because that is what they are. Toque sounds retarded. The word we really need to concentrate on is binders. OMFG THEY ARE CALLED BINDINGS.

By the way, this is a toque,




Here is your proof.

toque? i'm guessing you're from canada. toque and beanie refers to the same thing. it's just that we call it a beanie in the states and people in canada call it a toque

Yesterday I was having a conversation with a couple of people at work who are both British. I mentioned the difference between falling with a helmet on and falling with a toque on and one of them looked confused and said "tuke?". The other Brit turned to him and said "knit hat".

I've never had to be 'translated' before.

I know the origin of the word as it was adapted by the French settlers and fur traders, hence why it is correct and beanie is a bastardized abomination of a an awesome word. You gotta admit toque is funner to say than beanie. Agree fully on binders though. That shits gotta go.

It makes me angrier than skinny stances. Honestly the worst thing in snowboarding. Binders are school supplies.

The Toque and Canada is like the U.S and the Imperial system, just give it up already.
