PLASTIC FANTASTIC
Snowfeet - Extremely fast and extremely compact
A new, booming type of winter sport accessory has skated onto the market. The “Snowfeet” made of extremely resistant fibreglass-reinforced plastic consist of flat, one-size-fits-all soles that are attached to any winter or snowboarding boots using a binding mechanism. For those that find skis and ski sticks too cumbersome, they offer a lightweight alternative compact enough to be carried around in a small backpack.

There is, however, a fairly serious caveat attached to this new plastic winter gadget – those who have tested them advise only “prudent and accomplished” skiers to use the Snowfeet, as they apparently permit extremely high speeds. This may be great news for the two Czech creators who have Olympic ambitions for their invention, but here’s hoping that the crowdfunders who will be receiving the Snowfeet as of February 2019 are all, indeed, “prudent and accomplished.”
