I agree. Nice that you had an idea and followed through with doing something about it. Bad problem to solve though, there is no problem. It would be more frustrating dealing with it than worth the effort to fix nothing. Good luck using it on a full lift......There's this thing called a heel cup you can put it over your toe and achieve the same thing without having to invest in a foot thong.
When exiting the lift you do so as you normally would. Place your foot in the same spot and the magnet draws the ring out of the hook. I personally don't use a stomp pad and use the binding as leverage to turn and such. Lifty does not get in the way and slides out easily due to the magnet.Interesting. But what happens when you are getting off the lift with 5 other people at the same time and need to use your back foot to petal? That would get annoying. You could unhook it before that... but.. Cool idea though, I have no need for it because my lift rides are only 2-3 minutes. But I could see it being useful for those 15 min lift rides out west.
Lifty is super easy to use and is hands free. There is no need to bend over when connecting the ring to the Langur Hook. You can unhook it before getting off of the lift and it will not cause any problem. Thanks for the good wishes.I applaud the effort you put on that design. I personally would not use it because for a traditional bindings, you have the heelcup to use as BA mentioned, and for the flow bindings or other rear-entry bindings you can place your foot in without locking it while on the chairlift. Can you unhook it before you get off the chair and not have it magnetically hook back up? If you try to unhook it ,would that make you bend over to reach it and possibly fall over prior to getting off the chair? some lifts do not have safety bars on them:dunno: just my thoughts, but I wish you luck with it.Thanks for sharing.
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... :RantExplode:There's this thing called a heel cup you can put it over your toe and achieve the same thing without having to invest in a foot thong.
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.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!
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.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
