The IPO truly is a completely different approach to the traditional binding layup. This is achieved through placing the baseplate that flexes similar to a skateboard truck and places the flex point directly under the middle of your foot rather than at the heel and toe of the binding. This drastically reduces the fatigue on your foot while really transferring energy to the toe and heel edges of your board. That means you ride comfortable for longer! Also the heelcup has been mimicked to be taller than traditional heelcups, which allows for a bit shorter of a highback. The great thing about this is the phenomenon known as "binder bang" is basically eliminated. These bindings fall in the medium stiffness range so they are great for basically any riding style you can throw at them. Enjoy a binding that actually works with you, rather than just keeping you attached to your board.
This thing is built for all things freestyle thrown at it. The zero camber profile makes presses and rail riding a breeze, however when you throw it on edge it can still rail a turn. Completely twin in shape and stance and a damn durable sintered base, the Paxson can take on large tables, street rails, and park rail beatings time and time again. Also good to note that Slash is rider owned and operated. Coming from the brain of Gigi Ruf and additional input from Johnnie Paxson, you know they make boards right given they're years of knowledge and experience.
The Mtn Twin is born and bred to take on pretty much anything. With a twin shape but setback stance you can set this guy up completely twin or easily push it back for the deep pow days. The hybrid camber is great for providing rocker float, but camber control when railing turns. What really helps this thing hold an edge is the Mellow magnetraction added near the tip and tail contact points. This really increases edge hold, however keeps the "hooky" feeling out of it. Overall a great board that you can ride everday at resorts, but just as easily venture into the sidecountry and backcountry and still be confident.
This board is a great do it all board for the buck. Handles extremely well in most any conditions due to the directional volume twin shape and hybrid camber. This makes it so you can take this board in the park, ride pow, or rip a groomer all in the same run. As far as flex goes this board comes in right at the middle with a not too stiff/not to soft feel that allows it the perform well all over the mountain. With YES going at it for a while now and created and backed by some of the best riders in the game, this is a great do everything board at a killer price.
By far one of the highest quality pair of shades I have ever owned. With the release of IVI they have spared no expense in ensuring each pair of shades has a strong attention to detail, an awesome fit, and the lenses are incredible. The lenses are produced by the legendary Carl Zeiss Vision. They specialize in everything optics and make everything from microscope lenses and camera lenses, so they really know what they are doing and quite simply the lenses are the the toughest I have ever had, with the highest optical clarity. Overall a great pair of shades well worth the price and come in clean and solid colorways. Also, with the power moves IVI has been making recently with the addition of Austyn Gillette and Keith Hufnagel to the team, you know IVI is headed in the right direction if guys like that are backing it.
