When Ruroc first entered the snow helmet scene people made a lot of references to Storm Troopers or Power Rangers or well anything really that didn’t make too much sense. Yes, it’s true we love mocking Ruroc because it’s the most impractical snow helmet/face mask combo on the planet. But it seems that now they have a potential rival.
With the latest Star Wars movie now out on DVD and everyone trying to cash in, one entrepreneur from California has devised a new facemask that will make you about as cool as Kylo Ren at a human resources employee satisfaction symposium.
Why does this exist? Because someone thought they were a genius. Or because they’re an engineer with too much time on their hands and clearly don’t understand that having the wind in your face is a great part of snowboarding. Or the final theory, they’re really just such a huge Kylo Ren fan and like to take cosplay to the mountains.
With 42 days left in their Kickstarter and only $121 raised out of their asking of $20,000 it’s pretty safe to assume this bad idea won’t get funded. Why not? Well because no one wants to look like they have a pack shovel slapped to their face.
Sorry SnugMug you just won’t be part of the future of snowboarding. But you know what will? A lot of other great ideas.
