That's what it all comes down to - marketing!!!

Doesn't matter how good the product is. Classic example being VHS and Betamax

Betamax was way ahead of VHS and was even better than SVHS but VHS is what took over.

They are VERY expensive. Over prozed actually. Not all that complicated.

Cool stuff. The husky in most of the product pictures is a nice touch

Pod seats

Just purchased a Ribcraft Mitigator with the pod seat and it is a great addition to an already great ride. I agree that they would be easy to reproduce and would be interested in acquiring more.

Before we purchased the mitigator I asked for a quote from Ullman and they replied with EUR 2850 for the seat plus EUR 145 for the pod and they have a couple of styles. If interested email me and I can forward the qoute and a brochure.

i thought the advantage of a pod/jockey seat is that you use the built in suspension in ur legs?? so whats the point of suspension in a seat that is designed more for standing. Maybe a floating floor like whiteshark (i believe) would be more appropriate.

I can understand if it was mounted to a bucket or wrap around style bum perch

When riding in the Ullman seat in rough conditions I distribute my weight between my legs and the seat and it makes for a very confortable ride. Much more so than the no suspension jockey seats. It is also very confortable to sit in when there are no waves to jump. In our limited experience with the seat I highly recommend it.

Yes but after a while your legs will turn to jelly if they are doing all the work!!!

As to a floating floor the Zodiac CZ7 has one - they claim it is the most advanced deck out there - of course wearing trainers with a shock absorbing sole will have a similar effect!!!
