I'll do my best to improve them. Cambers are crazy now. It was easier when it was just "traditional, reverse, and flat"

You can think of them that way really. Turbolover: Traditional; Overlord: Flat-rise; Necromancer: Reverse.

Not QUITE that simple, because there's elements of all three main types in every board, but "overall" they still fit those categories.

It's handy though - I would use it for checking the opposite. My size 7 feet don't work well on many normal width boards (including the ones in your list). I was thinking about a generic way to make something similar and letting the user supply the dimensions.
I'll check the scaling on the small sizes, but it's based on the foot length in inches, not the boot so much. Still will look.

And yeah, I am going to implement a "precision" mode so you can supply foot length in CM, boot contact patch, and overall boot length in CM. A lot of people just want to know roughly if it will fit, but the original idea was to get it precise.

Thanks for the feedback!

EchelonSnow Hi, everyone! Been busy. Long time no chat, but remember that online "will my foot fit?" tool I talked about?

I whipped it up today:
Board Size Tool WIP

That's my test site, so not FULLY functional because I need to implement some math for changing the stance width - that's a tomorrow thing. But You select a board, a boot size, and independent stance angles and it shows you a visual representation of where your toes will be. Basically, if you're inside the dotted overage line with the foot outline, you're all set!

I may take into account Z-pos for the scaling factor as well (IE, binding height)bt that might be getting a bit too crazy.

Try it out, and let me know your thoughts! As far as I know, no one else has done this, and I have no idea why. Seems like a no-brainer, really, and it took just a couple hours to get the POC done.


BY THE WAY,
Preorders are up. There's been some sweeping changes at Echelon, all of them good, honestly. You can now have any graphic on any Platform we make --- even your own!

24WERD Do you guys need any 'regular joe' testers?

Going up Apr 5 to Mammoth.

You guys are also the closes Snowboard co. to me in Pasadena.

You need to get the boards in some shop around here like sport chalet or even the small ones like billy board shop in montrose or ocean view sport shop.

Any updates changes going on with these boards? How 'bout them stickers!?!? I've been keeping an eye on the interwebs for info, anyone spotted anything new?

Yeah I was hoping for something more all-mtn free-style than all-mtn park, but we'll know when the reviews come out. The Overlord is calling my name that board is too good looking to pass up.

Seeing as I have a baby on the way perhaps that's what I need any way since my local hill is Bear

I think their pre-SIA catalogue had the visuals in them if they are still the same, which I imagine they would be. Very good looking catalogue, I liked the necro before, but I am really digging the straight black! When will these go on sale?
