Terrablades


Have you guys seen these Terrablades, with ski boot bindings.

I would have to say they are the best production boot out there. they are made by a guy in the US, a mate of mine bought a pair, They are awsome.

Those look great. Love the pop in/pop out option versus Coyotes.

I have to think Coyotes would cost $500 ++ if they were still in production. You would pay $800 for a quality mountian bike if you were addicted so .......

Terrablader watches the forum on occasion . I think he lives in SanDeigo?

They do look like they would last a lifetime. Compared to a good pair of skis, I guess this is not such a crazy price.

if i had the ski disease i wouldn't think twice about it.

i would have to have a solid 2-4hr demo even to consider them for kiting, def could see the dry lake use but the beach .,.about 50-100 transitions with those things not counting jumps in between, man it looks heavy

not having ski boots just puts it out of my mind.

stout gear for sure, bearing change would be a reality check, and flats... keeping a single land board in tires, tubes and bearings is about as much as i can stand even with backup ready to go. tires and tubes not so much but at least one tube/tire and a full bearing change every 3-4 months.

anybody got a pair on the beach running daily ? JOEL in AUS has a set, i think its joel, GEorge who your buddy? does he fly for FS?
