A Ski-Snowboard Hybrid, for the best of both worlds.
by Jamin Hu
The weakness of a snowboard traveling on flat ground was a problem worth tackling for none other than a young snowboarder desperately trying to move quickly from the bottom of one ski lift to another without dehydrating or being made fun of by skiers. The result, was a "if you can't beat them, join them" approach, creating a modified split-board capable of downhill skiing as well as snowboarding. The transition from snowboard to ski can be made in a matter of seconds (10 long seconds) which allows this Hybrider to be faster in any race longer than 30 meters against an average floundering snowboarder.
Stay tuned for the downhill test in the Winter of 2017-2018
