1. They develop one of the first twin tips on the market just to start with.
2. They started the equal tip and tail hieght idea
3. Firsts to put in a 100% sidewall design for their twin tips.
4. Firsts to decide that center mounting your skis would be dope for park riding.
5. Had a totally equally proportional flexing ski. (meaning you could mount one ski backwards if you wanted to).
Then... they kinda deleted those ideas... went with 100% cap construction, made skis with almost no twintip, they made skis that were/are real stiff under the boot. Seems as soon as they turned their backs, all their ideas were revampted into another product (IE, the Scratch). Now theyre trying to get some of the action back by making sidewall skis again. Gotta have some sympathy for them. They come up with the ideas, they push the industry in the right and best direction, and the carpet gets pulled out from underneath them. Im not really a liberal hippie, but FUCK the CORPORATIONS. LINE is now seeming to be headed back in the right direction, so props to them. Every other company that just steals ideas and keeps the same skis for 3+ years... yall know what you can do.
