neachdainn Let's not get off topic here. It's not a matter of if duals are safe/unsafe, but rather if they are stupid.

Yes, they are absolutely fucking retarded. But hey, some people still wear tall t's and pants around their ankles... The day that resorts start implementing IQ screening will be glorious.

No more tards sitting under hits or behind blind rollers.

No more twits taking 10 minute long selfies as they side-slip down a run.

Hell, maybe skiers will learn to make more than 2 turns and stop making moguls...

Hahaha... Yeah, right.

Mike E This is no where near related to snowboarding in the way that snowblading is related to skiing.

In skiing and snowblading you still use the same techniques but with a much lower effective edge.

In snowboarding and dual-boarding you lose the connection between your bindings leaving them completely independent of eachother. I don't see how you can relate them other than moving with one foot forward one foot back.

Get down the mountain however you want.

francium They've got to more unsafe than skiing or snowboarding as in both those sports you use your edges to stop, these things must have an effective edge about as long as a micro penis so in the event you need to stop suddenly you're screwed.

KansasNoob I want to hear BAs take on these vs snowbikes. I figure these dual "boards" are at least good for some comedy. Especially in the park.

I just dont see what makes them so much more unsafe than any other sports item that carries a human down a snowy/icy hill. It appears they have some form of control (but not that much) and some way to slow down.

Theres no argument if you have some evidence they are more dangerous than skiing, snowboarding, snowblading, those ridiculous ski bikes, etc.

But lets not lose focus on the fact that they are stupid.....

Skis are unsafe, snowboarding is unsafe, frying bacon is unsafe, crossing the street is unsafe....everything is as safe or unsafe as you make it.

I think we can just say these aren't for most of us and leave it at that. It will not affect me regardless of success or failure, and I'd hate to be dicks to someone trying to bring a new product to the market....then we are as bad as the skiers in the 80s to us.
