The Whip Snowboard by Cheetah Ultra Sports is the most original snowboard design we've seen in a long time. The Whip Snowboard comes out after four years of research and development from the Cheetah Ultra Sports team and is promised to fit better, feel lighter, go faster, cruise smoother, turn quicker, edge harder, carve sharper, jump higher, and land softer. Cheetah says that is does all that without any heel or toe drag, and that it makes riding so easy, most experienced riders will actually have to relax their riding style to get greater performance out of the board. The board is also easily lockable. The Whip F-117 is their first and the only model for the 08-09 season and production will be very limited (Only a few hundred boards will be produced this season) because each board is carefully hand crafted. So will this new snowboard design revolutionize the industry, or will it go down as a hyped up wannabe? Only time will tell. Cheetah Ultra Sports are currently accepting preorders and shipping will start in January 2009. You can pre-order the Whip Snowboard for a price of $1899.
