MEET THE MADJACKS
Are your feet still hurting? It’s probably not your fault. Be COMFORTABLE without compromising performance. The MadJacks is a patented device that morphs your snowboard boot onto a ski binding. Oh, and did we mention it was invented by ROCKET SCIENTISTS?
Because we are rocket scientists at our day job, we understand and study the physics behind skiing. We recognize that SKI GEOMETRY has changed immensely in the last 40 years, while ski boot technology has not changed since Disco was alive and orange shag carpet was in vogue. MODERN SKIS do not require a severe forward flex, they do require firm medial support to drive the ski. The MADJACKS was designed in the modern area, with a moderate and comfortable flex that allows you to drive the ski with SUPERB RESPONSE. And because they wrap around a snowboard boot, your days of boot bang are gone and you can walk like a human being to the lodge. Welcome to the new era of skiing – SKIING PAIN FREE
Real World Testimonials
MadJacks are AWESOME!
“ Honestly, they totally changed my attitude about skiing. I always went along just waiting till my toes got uncomfortable, cold and numb and I was just plain tired. These bindings made a huge difference — plus, I just felt cool having something no one else had.”
— BLAIR SACHS HANEWALL, SKIER, SEATTLE, WA
Thank you MadJacks!
“I patrol with a snowboard but I want to use my skis as well. Unfortunately after wearing snowboard boots for 20 years I can’t stand the thought of putting on the ski boots for up to 10 hours a day. Thank you MadJacks!”— ROD SCHMIDT, SKI PATROL, MT CREEK, NJ
“As a store owner, I am excited to offer the MadJacks to the youth market as an alternative to traditional ski boots. As a parent, it is a ‘no brainer’, one pair of boots now to ski, ride and sled!”
— JOSH HARING, CO-OWNER OF THE MOUNTAIN AIR, ADVANCED SKIER, SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA
I love to ski
“I love to ski, but the fit of a traditional ski boot does not work for me. The MadJacks allowed me to hit the slopes again and be comfortable.”
— STEPHANIE HOWINGTON, BEGINNER SKIER, HOUSTON, TX.
