hahaha.....    Hey, take it up with an Amish person...  I learn long ago that Amish have their own thing, and it is why so many younger Amish have left for English life style.   You will never believe half the things and stories I  have been told or seen.    I even saw a buggy get a ticket for running a red light.  That was FUNNY!

 

Ski Boots are like equipment and if they do not OWN them they can use them...  like cars.

Oh...yolo yolo a renter's life for the Amish...

 

LOL buggy getting tickets by running the red light? A perfect excuse would be "equipment malfunction". The horse's gotta do what a horse's gotta do, and a horse can malfunction sometimes...

 

I would if I could :P That would be hilarious~ Never met an Amish person in my life, only saw a few in shopping malls...

  Nope Equipment Malfunction will not work cause the horses are trained and expected  to obey the driver.  the driver  ran the red light.. lololol   I almost hit one when a buggy had no driver and the horse was talking it's self home.  Nothing like trying to grab the rains hanging out of a trucks window.

Well a car can get it's gas pedal stuck, I don't see why a horse cannot get it's mind stuck~lol At least you cannot sue the manufacturer for that...

 

Did you claim the buggy for yourself once you successfully get the reins without killing yourself?

LOL No, I was trying to keep it from becoming roadkill on the highway.

It only took half a page to derail a thread from airbag helmets to Amish people and their buggies...

a bit late in the thread but

 

 

 

It might be ok for biking in cooler climates but I suppose it could catch on if it was shown to offer better protection than current helmets.  Is there discussion anywhere on exactly what causes it to deploy and/or if it offers better neck protection?  Seems like more false deployment issues with skiing and mountain biking compared to road or commuter biking.  OTOH, with a few modifications, it might give some extra avy protection similar to the abs back packs.

 

Just noticed that their website says it is NOT FOR SKIING, mopes, in line skating, etc.  I guess it deploys by detecting accident like movements which are suppose to be different than non accident type movements.  Harder in skiing.

 

Did anyone see this comment-

 

"I'm impressed with the helmet, but I can't stop focusing on what they said about cars. Most people only dislike cars because they're ignorant."  It is followed by a picture of a really nice looking engine.  Hey, I enjoy the convenience of my car as much as the next guy, but...

The other rather obvious issue is that in most weather conditions skiing you have to wear something on your head anyway. It's cold and there is a wind chill factor from both the wind and skiing at any speed. Once I tried skiing with a helmet I never looked back, simply because I found a helmet to be the warmest, more comfortable skiing hat I ever owned.

Yeah, but you couldn't look like this guy.  (From another thread, can't embed it.)

Fully agree!  Also, as a tall guy, I really like the protection my helmet gives me from low hanging tree branches.

It doesn't bother me...    I am an easy going person normally but if you ask my kids, you might get a different response.

 

I missed the part on the site, "Not for SKIING" .   It looks like its more for the urban bike rider, or commuter.

I think they served the design purpose. But the application is limited. If I'm not prepared for hitting the dirt a few times in a day, then I would definitely go this route. But my skiing seems require me carry a dozen just in case so I'll probably still stick with my conventional one for now...
