It looks like a bunch of 19/20 year old students doing a uni project to solve a problem that doesn't exist...

For the creators, i will give you a clue why this has no place in snowboarding...

It's called a LIFT PASS it allows you to get on a lift that takes you to the top of the mountain with no need for any mad over engineered crap that makes you look like a turd...

Just trying to be constructive...

I would rather train a dog to pull me than buy that thing. Is your mom busy?

This. That thing is not gonna work in backcountry conditions. It's probably only going to actually work on perfectly maintained groomers. Powder or hardpack and you're done. Plus, it's slower than skinning or hiking. So, it's essentially useless.

I'm more intrigued by the fact that It took almost a year and a half for them to turn up here, create a new account, dig around and find the only zombie thread relating to their stupid gadget????????

*edit*

…after visiting their web page and watching the video? I don't see as how anything has changed from Kirkrider's first posting this!! However, THIS looks like it just might have some potential,..



If nothing else, it looks fast as fuck!!

I love the dude testing it out with his helmet on while going 1mph at what looks to be an actual decline.
