Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Alternative to UVO System from Völkl

 Poster: A snowHead

Hey there,

I hope this message is considered as appropriate by the admins. If not, I apologize.

We always wondered with a friend how effective were the different vibration damping systems that some brands provide. For example, one of the most known ones is UVO from Völkl. We graduated from Uni last year and we seem to have developed a more effective product than them. At least, that is what our measurements say. We are thinking of moving forward with the idea, and try to create a start-up. We would like to ask you to fill a small survey to better understand your perspective. Takes just 3-4 minutes.

Thanks a lot for any help!!!

@Racso_21, you might want to put a bit of text between your URL tags, so that we have an actual link to click on wink

(And yes, of course I can just copy & paste the link text, but it will dissuade many lazy people who might otherwise click through)

@Racso_21, done. Not the worst online survey I've seen in but you could do with more options, e.g. I might buy skis with your new technology, but it wouldn't be the sole (or major) factor for me. The questions are quite leading, so there's a risk you'll get the answers you want rather than a realistic idea of people's views.

Also, be careful about asking for a respondent's name - this is potentially identifiable information (in GDPR terms) and you have no privacy statement or anything else that indicates how you'll handle this.

Hey,

thanks for the tips, and specially to the kind souls that filled the survey so far. It was the first time that I was posting in the forum so I did not manage to properly set the URL link. Here the updated version (Survey here).

Regarding whether the survey is leading people into the direction we want, let's recognize that we are not experts on this. Both my friend and I are regular skiers, and we were always quite skeptical with all these damping systems on skis. We do agree with most of the respondents, it is just about marketing but the effectiveness of all the solutions in the market is quite poor! Actually, my friend worked last year on a damping technology for aerospace application and we wondered how this would compare to the UVO. We rented some UVO skis and did some lab measurements (just for fun). It turned out that the thing he had been working on could bring more damping into the ski than what it is considered on of the best products in the market (and also for the same weight). It is of course a new technology that we don't fully understand, so we do think we can still improve quite a lot. In terms of potential "manufacturing costs", it is also quite competitive.

It all started as a joke, but now we were wondering if we should try "commercializing" this and how. We just launched the survey to get some idea of what skiers in general think.

Thanks!

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

look at Renoun skis - a US startup with a priority non Newtonian damper (something like Silly Putty or D3O AIUI)
