We'll be kicking off our Fifth Annual Riders Choice Awards on Monday, but I wanted to make sure that we aren't missing anything in the Innovation of the Year category. Please let me know what you thought were huge innovations over the last year. Thanks!!

NVS Tower speakers. First company to produce a speaker that is LOUD for the rider using pro-audio drivers.

Was the FAST system invented this year or last? That would get my nomination.

A-line by far

if you don't have one you need to get one period

it may be a small innovation of the year, but it is a great line.

What about Mastercrafts Throttle by Wire and speed control system? No throttle cable and no servo motor.

slipknot, SL had coated line two years ago, and Proline had there's a year and a half ago. A-Line was third to the punch, just marketed better.

The F.A.S.T. system was nominated last year since it came out with the 2004 bindings.

The Angel. The first womens graphic on a board that wasn't entry level! i know it wasn't a huge innovation, but it was big step in the women's market of the industry.

I second Mike with the sacs. They are awesome.
CWB's Lotus is an aggresive women's board as well. As is HO Eden.
Does the Marius count or is that for 06? That board has innovation spewing out all over...and it works.

The new Epic boat...DOWN system or whatever it is called. I guess the ballast system could be considered innovative or groundbreaking...

The Epics D.R.O.P. Zone technology like Leo said is pretty crazy technology, especially considering how it was created. That should definitely be in there somewhere.
