      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

So that's what they're called. I saw these being used by some street performers (the Orange Men?) in Toronto a couple years ago. They are incredible - one can go really fast on them. Where do I buy a pair?

 

BTW, is that at Burning Man or so knock off?

if i'm not mistaken i read a while back that kangaroos have elastic tendons in their legs that allow them to capture energy from the downstride and release it again when hopping. this would seem to be a similar principle, or like a hybrid car capturing energy from deceleration to charge it's batteries.
