Entitlement is amazing. It's a second you won rode for a whole season and somehow didn't notice the big giant crack in it. Yeah it sucks but it's not like the topsheet totally delamed that crack was right under a binding point which means its a stress and fatigue from landing. I can see where the binding was and that's the real culprit. It's not a manufacturing defect.

East§ide i dont think you're wrong at all, and i personally would've left that out. working in sales and customer service, i can tell you it's better to make them ask you than to volunteer information..especially in regards to how much you didnt pay for it lol

I'm going to try and call them and see if I can get a more reasonable response from them, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm truly surprised that a company of their size will not back up their product just because I won it. Wish me luck in getting something done over the phone.

if i won a bmw and the motor failed, i would expect bmw to replace it whether i won the car or not. they're argument is that they don't stand behind their products because you didn't directly pay for it? that's totally fucked.

BurtonAvenger Well chances are if it's a board that's given out for a contest it's a production second.

BurtonAvenger So now after seeing the pic that is exactly how I pictured it'd break. Older Signals like yours have an issue with cracking like that because the sidewall is too steep so it doesn't dissapate the energy like it should. So what happened is your bindings base which has a dead spot flexed right on the part of the board that still has camber and then shot the energy out to the sidewall and cracked it. I'll put money that it'll be warrantied.

JeffreyCH I don't see where a board that was won should be any different then one you bought. Did it come with a warranty card and did you mail it in? I've never warrantied a snowboard but I have sent back a couple wakeboards, even one I bought used(hyperlite rocks) I think you did the right thing sending a polite email and explaining your situation. Good luck man.

wrathfuldeity Daughter had won a k2 at sb camp, it delamed...she called and got the run around. I immediately called got a bit of run around but noted it was their top pro park board and should not make any difference won or bought and asked to get the issue kicked up a level...got it resolved. But had to go to the local authorized dealer to have it inspected and then they sent it in and that where the new one got shipped to.
