Funny how things work out. Early 90's I used to race downhill mountain bikes. I made a few friends. When I stopped racing I sort of fell out of touch with my mountain bike buddy's. A buddy of my'n Joe Standish worked for Rock Shocks and was a Pro racer that I looked up to. He was promoted and moved overseas to over look fork production. Rock Shocks make's some pretty nice stuff and thats where Joe fell in love with carbon fiber. Well years have past I donít ride MTB's anymore but I still keep in touch with Joe. It turns out during the years we havenít talked He had picked up wakeboarding and again we share the same interestís. Joe used his overseas contacts and has been busy working on developing Carbon Fiber wakeboard racks and a bunch of other goodies to come.(more to come) When he told me he was going to do this 2 years back I was like "Man do we really need another trick wakeboard rack" it seems like there is all ready a tone of them on the market. I love carbon fiber stuff and I know Joe is into trick stuff like me so I tried to keep an open mind. The proto type picks havenít really given me an idea what the racks were really going to look like until just recently. The picks have been all CAD drawing's ect. Well he got the production rack's back and sent me some SPY picks. All I can say is WOW these things are off the hook. Bling worthy for sure. They do need some LED's in them LOL. I got to get a set for my boat. The way the wakeboards hook into the rack is like nothing I have seen before. Very well thought out and simple. Most of the new trick wakeboard racks have a tone of moving part's ect. These new racks are simple and stylish. I love the Black or Carbon Fiber especially on a black tower. IMO polished racks donít look good on a black tower unless all your other tower accessories are polished. I canít wait to get a set because they are sick. Sorry I cant post a pick of them right now. Ill post some picks after I talk with Joe to make sure its OK.

Is this going to be similar to the Off-Road X9 thread? Just a big tease?

I have a set of racks built out of spent uranium, they are pretty cool and they even glow at night without any LEDS.

Grant I know if you have any say in the production models they will come out top notch.
Let me know because we need a second set of black racks on the Vride.
