The dub hook wraps around both sides of the leg and supports the rider when he/she is leaning into a trick. It locks the legs in and allows for a faster response because it eliminates the forward movement the leg has if they were not used.
Fair enough, but I thought the point of having softer bindings in the park was so you could "bone" tricks out more, and generally have more freedom of movement. Maybe somewhere on my way to becoming a grandpa I lost my senses?!?

I should really stop posting here because bumping this thread from 2009 is not good, on the other hand it is kinda funny.

Okay so why don't boardercross guys use them if they offer so much support? Btw I'm 30 and ride everything... I just think they seem a little too much like a shamwow to me.

saavidesign I would say that not every rider is the same, that is why there are different technologies out there. You need to try something before you can say that it doesnt improve how you ride or the comfortability of riding. Ive read this forum before i posted, read the typical hate comments and more to come..and its not an invention, its an alteration to an existing invention..
Use the search to learn more about what hooks do or check the website

For someone trying to get a company and a product off the ground you are certainly heading towards patronizing asswipe status pretty fast

So, park riders will be standing up here to sing praises for your genius invention?

Or you could just explain what they do so the people who may be interested can learn something?

I don't have to suck another mans junk to know I wouldn't like it... I'm here to knock your wings. If I wanted wings, I'd try redbull or always.

By the way, I tried using 3 straps in the 90's. A toe strap, heel strap, and ankle strap at the top of the bindings. Know what it was a fix for? The shitty weak boots we had in the 90's. I loved my Vans Shaun Palmers but they're a wet noodle compared to even the cheapest boots today, let alone my Burton Drivers. These things would just get in the way, and add weight. Kinda like most parts on a mustang.

I've seen bindings with these built in. What do they do? Can anyone explain?

I can guess a couple things but if i'm gonna bump this I want someone to lay it out for me.

Until then, i'm knocking it. Damned if i'm buying it

grafta So what am I missing out on by not having these "wings" spam-slut-2-post guy?

Basti I'm curious why you talk about "them" when your username is the same as the company's name.
