Tracks - - Stuff We Dig -

Tracks were re­cently lucky enough to be in­vited down to Mt Buller to test ride the rev­o­lu­tion­ary new Cross Board with its Aus­tralian de­signer Dave ‘Max’ El­ph­ick. The Cross Board has been en­gi­neered like a skate­board with a truck-based dual bladed board de­signed to con­trol edg­ing and side cuts. It helps new rid­ers learn quicker let­ting them ride the whole moun­tain sooner, while ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers can de­velop new tricks and tune their Cross Board for more con­trol and free­dom in a va­ri­ety of con­di­tions. Tracks had a ball and would en­cour­age any­one start­ing off at the snow or look­ing for some­thing new in icy con­di­tions to give it a go. The Cross Board comes in two sizes: the 1080cm red short board and the larger 1360cm blue long board. The lat­ter has limited stock of 50 boards. In Aus­tralia, the first re­lease Cross Boards cost $800, or can be rented for $60 per day at Mt Buller. WWW.CROSSBOARD.CO
