Gas Powered “Snowboard”

gas-snowboard

Some things just make me shake my head… This is one of those.  I caught some heat last winter questioning the legitimacy of the NoBoard.  I stood corrected.  I think I can safely say that this one is for “Kooks” only though.  Found this on Snowboard Magazine’s site today.  No word on who makes it or where to get it but here are the details:

“This is the gas-powered vehicle that combines the thrill of riding a snowmobile and the freedom of a snowboard, enabling you to surf effortlessly over the deepest fresh powder or on packed, granular snow. Its patented rubber track uses 1 3/4″ snow lugs and flexes as you lean in the direction you wish to go for wide, graceful turns or aggressive slalom-like carvings.

Powered by a 6 1/2-hp four-cycle gasoline engine that starts with a pull, it can accommodate riders up to 250 lbs. and has a maximum speed of 18 mph, operating up to two hours on only 3/4-gallon of gasoline. The rugged frame is made of aluminum and high-density molded ABS plastic. Two cleated footpads provide secure footing while standing without requiring bindings, and its adjustable height-handlebar has a throttle control which provides easy stopping; includes a tethered auto-off switch. 65″ L x 19″ W x 21″ H. (150 lbs.) $2,000.00”

Let’s hope this is a joke.

  1. Maybe for phase 2 they will ad a gyro system on the handlebar so that when you ollie, or get air, you can spin the body around.
