Springy add-on brings suspension to snowboards

by • April 5, 2016 • No Comments

Whilst we’ve all seen footage of snowboarders swooshing through fresh powder, the fact is that they’re additional frequently banging their way down icy or rutted ski slopes. That being the case, why don’t they have suspension like mountain bikes? Russia’s Sergey Yarosh & Co Design thinks they should, that is why the company has created the SANKIboard process.

SANKIboard is created to be mounted on existing boards, with conventional third-party bindings in turn being mounted on it.

Implementing carbon fiber-reinforced fiberglass front and rear leaf-style shock absorbers, it reportedly soaks up both ongoing vibrations and big hits upon landings. According to the designers, this should allow for additional control, less discomfort, and less muscle fatigue. Additionally, the increased height should store riders’ boots of contacting the slope during aggressive carving.

Plus, if riders sit on it between runs, their butt won’t freeze.

Yarosh and his team are may already raising production funds for the SANKIboard, on Indiegogo. A pledge of US$199 should get you a process, if all goes according to plans.

And if you’d pretty only have a snowboard with suspension may already created into it, you can want to check out the Batman-esque Whip FR-II. California company Manic was previously building suspension snowboard bindings, although they look to no longer be in production.

More information on the SANKIboard is on the market in the next video.
