PowerTube Vest Testing

edited September 2012 in Videos, Photos & Media
So after taking a few elbows & feet to the neck area we finally decided to try a different approach to protect ourselves during our training for the tandem tube division at the dual event tourneys we attend. The second event would be slalom straight up the line per the conventional AWSA rules but with a combined score for the two skiers keeping in line with the tandem scoring required. Needless to say this is a two day tournament with the slalom day at a private site.

Well after a few years of training, and thanks to average slalom scores, these two guys managed to take home the crown in the Idaho state championships. And the PowerTube vest worked flawlessly.

    I've always wondered whether slalom skiing would improve your tubing performance.

    I let @jlittle try on my pink vest today, just in case he needs a little more style while tubing

    @Mateo_Vargas - yes it is, I'm not sure if he can ride the tube very well, but I saw him knock down a couple of -38's this weekend @ the Hilltop

    @Mateo_Vargas How do you know Tim?

    He used to be a skier I looked up to.
