Talking Strap Pad - 1 of SIA's "eight essential gadgets" lol

So I was reading this article on rocker technology at SIA etc in the Denver Post and noticed something at the bottom. Below the main article is a little sub article:

Snow Show previews eight essential gadgets

Gearheads, rejoice. The SnowSports Industries America Snow Show closes today at the Colorado Convention Center, but it leaves behind a wake of new gadgets, gear and gizmos that will make your head spin, whether you're a seasoned shredder or a green skier. Here are some of the many memorable items that will be in stores next winter.
...
...
Ride with ease

The product: Strap Pad, a stomp pad with an added strap

Why it's cool: This new item is excellent for beginner snowboarders and for those who want to cut down on the ankle stress that comes on long lifts. It's a stomp pad with a strap that you step into, not unlike a toe-clip pedal on a mountain bike. It makes exiting lifts a breeze, especially for beginner riders.

It costs: $22.50

Besides being an awful article and mentioning the word "Banana" a TON of times I thought this was funny and wanted to share. Way to not mention ANYTHING at all about a local snowboard company that uses the technology the article is supposed to be about btw Denver Post!!


So who's rocking the strap pad lets be honest?!?!?

TBH, My ankles get tired on the lift. I hook my toes under the board to keep it more level. I don't see it being a problem worth a $20 solution.
