Anybody ever make one? Was thinking about getting fancy and making some that are on a axel with bearings so they will move with the bike when u pull up so it doesn't break the skis. I can't find anywhere that sells them for 20in bikes only found complete bikes for about 1500 bucks lol

easy to make one, just make it so the ski isnt able to pivot fully thats all but you do need it to pivot just a little bit.

This. If it can pivot too much it'll just be flopping around in the air. Also, don't forget the skis have some built in flex that you can pop off of.

They only sell them direct on their website. Just hit the store tab.

They are expensive, but very strong, it's all chromoly construction. I've messed around with one and it was a ton of fun. The drifter team can do some pretty cool stuff with them too.

theyre expensive but purpose of the video is look at the rear rocker plate and how it pivots and take inspiration from that to build yours
