Ahhhhh very good grasshoppers! Comfortable allow you to ride better and ride longer... :ninja:

Get rid of the forward lean and try some low-backs now and you will be amazed :soapbox:

Completely different mechanics. Highbacks and forward lean improve high speed, dynamic riding. This is proven by biomechanics and physics. It's not a debate :).

Field tested by 1000's of the worlds best riders. Do I really have to make a list of the best riders in the world who use highbacks and forward lean???
How about you show me a big name shredder (not some urban jibber) who rides low backs with no lean.....good luck with that buddy :thumpsup:
