this is a stupid idea for a problem that only really exists for idiots.



you should have put as much effort into proving your proof of concept as you did drawing pretty pictures and schematics and diagrams.

lucky for you there are plenty of poser, pussy, stupid, dipshit 5-day-a-year "snowboarders" who will probably make you a millionaire for this retarded idea so better make a spot in the driveway for that Bentley!

personally i have toes and ride bindings with heelcups so i'm good homie.








this is stupid.

All of you are hating pretty hard on them.. I actually think its a great idea. I have heelcups on my bindings but still almost always rest my board on my boot(out of habit), so i know that I have ruined many a boots with my boards. I like the idea of the magnet detaching the ring so that you dont have to bend over to do it. That pretty much takes care of the complaint that everyone on this thread is concerned with (having to reach down to remove it). I wish all the luck to you and would love to pitch in for one. Just wondering why you chose that site and not kickstarter? Ive never heard of that one but I have personally backed probably 20 different kickstarter projects. I think kickstarter has a bigger audience and will increase your chances of hitting your goal. Just my 2 cents

Precisely. Every time I see some idiot getting pissed about their boots ripping or tearing right above the toes and saying it's not their fault...

The heel cup works perfect.

However, the money of those poser, pussy, stupid, dipshit 5-day-a-year "snowboarders" is the same colour as yours. If there are enough of them, OP will make money. Otherwise not.

Personally I don't think there's a big enough market, but that's just armchair quarterbacking.

Really small market idea IMO, the only snowboarding chair accessory I know people buy is alcohol or some smoke.
If you invested a lot of time, effort and money into this all I can day is good luck...

Seems like it would have been easier to just make a reinforced piece of material that goes on the toe of your boot to prevent the board from doing damage to it when resting the board there.

I have heelcups/toes and no desire for hangy things on my boots and hooky things on my board... and for that reason, I'm out.

You really want to know why people are hating this? Because it's a pointless look at me I want to be in snowboarding too company that is solving a problem that is nonexistent.

Do you know the lifespan of a snowboard boot? It used to be 100 days now it's about half that as the average rider goes less than 5 days a year so they will own that boot for almost a decade.

Uhm... to understand the (nonexisting or not) problem... doeas that mean that chairlifts exist that have no bar to put the board/skis on? Is that common?

A lot of chairlifts don't have the safety bars, most older chairlifts at small resorts don't have them.

Anyway, I think you guys need to focus your energy on something else, it's a non issue. Maybe stop sucking meth out of lightbulb before you film videos as well. Seemed like you guys had some serious anxiety promoting your product. Dude didn't blink once!
