    Carbon fiber seat question...

    Shibby,or anyone with the carbon fiber seat,

    Can a person do a full "superman" without cracking it? Or would one need to use his feet on the back of the ski to relieve some weight.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Limited,

    I think that is "iffy" because depending on the weight and force that the seat takes, I think there is a chance that it might crack but also not that likely because the thing is pretty damn sturdy. I myself am not going to chance it considering the amount of $$$$ I put in that thing....

    LOL... I hear ya

    I'm no lightweight, either... I think when I go "superman" my center of gravity actually gets higher
