Every Third Thursday: Adaptive Snowboard Reinvented

This month’s challenge is to merge Signal snowboards technology and Crankbrothers Mountain bike component technology to create a new next-level custom adaptive snowboard customized to get a new crew of shredders on the hill. The motivation for the build is personal–in 2000, good friend and pro snowboarder Tim Ostler was paralyzed from the chest down in a halfpipe snowboarding accident.

    And let us not forget cool-ass people that ripped hard on the snow and ended up in wheelchairs, like Trevor Snowden.
