It's that time of year again. The Riders Choice Awards will throw down during August and we need to make sure we've covered all the bases. We need your nominations for the "Innovation of the Year" category.

To give you an idea, the top finishers in 2005 for this category were the Hyperlite Roam, Cassette Bi-Level and the Liquid Force Fish. Other past winners were the Wakeboarding Unleashed video game, MasterCraft X-Star hull, DNA core and the Fly High Fat Seat.

It can be any product that is wake related and was released over the last 12 months. One that comes off the top of my head is the Hinge Tech bindings from CWB.

Let's hear what you've got. Thanks for you help.

I think the Hyperlite ABS sidewall would be in there as well.

The cooler box, and the insulated cans and insulated label technology.

some of the rail jams we have seen over the last year have been pretty wild - 3 different types of rails on one transition, angled wall slides, etc

Colin, Closed toe boots are not new. Sub Rosa(Fulltilt) made them for 2 years, 98-99.

My vote is for Hinge tech!!
Old     (guido)      Join Date: Jul 2002       07-07-2006, 2:51 PM Reply   
Definitely the Hinge-tech boots. I was laughing last night at the fact that the binding lube on my boat is starting to turn funny colors because it hasn't been used in so long. I've got about two gallons of the stuff that I'll probably never use again. LOL

my vote still goes for the tubelite, I know its a couple years old but IMO its that innovative, lol.

Nah got most stuff covered here. Maybe the new binding liners that are out.

Hinge-tech boots are nice.

Epic boats for going for it.

Dave,

I can't recall if you did last year, but, are you going to do a ProAudio rider's choice award this year?

the chick flick dvd

another vote for hinge tech.

I'm sorry, what I meant was Pro Audio Tower Speakers. The Tower speakers that are built with Pro Audio Concert Grade components that produce Sound Pressure Levels of much greater magnitude than traditional car audio gear.

The contenders would be NVS, WetSounds, Skylon (Rubicons), and Fishnoise. (there maybe one or two others)

It seems Skylon and Wetsounds have stepped into the market within the last year creating some healthy competition.

Evan,maybe you should give me a pull so I can use up the rest of the lube you have.


My vote...Swivel board racks.

honestly, the hinge techs are friggin worthless, i dont know why you like them so much, you shouldnt need lube to get into your bindings either way, hinge tech=stupid
Old     (innov8)      Join Date: May 2005       07-09-2006, 1:21 PM Reply   
Enlighten Us Kyle on why you think there so worthless. If you think everyone likes them so much just cause you dont have to use lube, then you are the one that sounds STUPID. Have you ever even had a pair on? Dosent sound like it, or you would know what all the hypes about.

yes, i've ridden them on multiple occasions and the hinge didn't really do anything for me besides making the bindings too stiff. I rode the Zeus'
