So it seems that these are real... Dual Snowboards Has anybody seen them in the wild? Looks pretty stupid but potential for fun at slow speeds.

they don't look like they are having fun at all in the vid. and for $220? rediculouse. Reminds me of razoer scooters and could only see them being a novelty so might try them out for $50 tops.

I've seen people on skiboards and skibikes and they look like way more fun...

It's like rollerblading for the snow...great fun, except that rollerblades are useless.

A novelty, but without getting any pop from a board between your feet it won't be converting anyone.

It looks like it would be fun to try out for a few hours, but the amount of work those kids look like they are doing just to pick up a minimal amount of speed doesn't seem worth it.

.... how on earth do you stop on those things? There's no contact points to slow you down except for your face. 

Looks like it could be a real ball buster on a rainbow fail, if you know what i'm saying. I can't see it catching on, definitely more of a novelty thing. Roller blade status for sure.

That does not look like much fun at all, looks like a pair of snowshoes almost. You could probally save some money and just strap bindings on to two food trays and hit the slopes. Just as much work I would guess and lighter on the wallet.

When I looked that up on Youtube, I came across this version of 'dual snowboards' as well:



I'm not sure which is worse.

I'm pretty sure that 2 people on boards like that with the poles is one of the dumbest things I've seen recently. Congrats.

You don't even need to stop because you can't pick up any speed on those things it looks like.  They need more surface area on the snow to distribute the weight and make those things go faster.

When i saw the other thread about a similar product i was thinking they would snowboard like they were skis. This is better than what i thought it was going to be.

Whatever happened to those shorty type skis? Is it still around? If so, i think this has atleast a niche market.

the short skis you are referring to are probably ski blades, they are still around but they were just a fad.  they were popular for like 2 seasons.

dual snowboards like defeats the purpose of all the new technology discovered. theres like no point in having a flexible core if you steer your feet seperately.

i looks like how you would run on wood and then jump and slide when in socks. don't see them go too fast so guess theres no stability at speeds. and yeah no pow

You might need to let the French Canadians know that, because they are still rocking them all over VT.

Putting "snowboard" in the name of this product is an insult to all snowboards. That being said, I would love to see someone try to spin on a rail with these...Can you say ball buster?
