This has to be the most ridiculous, and least thought out snowboard designs ever. Cheetah Ultra Sports’ The Whip is full of the tech you never knew you didn’t want until you saw it. Suspension, raised inserts, a go faster stripe carved through the core, seriously? This would just as well fit into 10 Horrible Snowboard Inventions

One blog described it as ‘the Lamborghini of snowboards’ which we thought was pretty fitting. It’s the perfect illustration of why you can’t just hand over snowboard design to car manufacturers or scientists and trust that they’ll build something amazing. They don’t know which variables make a good board work, and you end up with something that looks like this.

If anyone’s actually ridden one of these we’d really love to hear from you!

    you cannot compare a semi industrial board that costs maybe 500 euros to produce and sells 3000 euros to a board that really costs 2500 euros to produce ( 50-60 working hours on each board)…Godess is marketing, miura is real craftmanship..maybe you haven’t seen one in real!

    I’d definitely check out The Whip!
