Check out the date...1979

"...For years I thought someone would come up with a solution to overcome the inherent dangers of the hard extruded gates and flag panels,  but no one could".

"I enjoy the challenge:


Improve every negative issue inherent of the old hard-ware."

"This is a completely new solution to skiing gates." 


"...There is a big difference between contact at speed, by something solid that could weigh up to 2.8 lbs,  or a soft air column with advanced materials that weigh a fraction of the present hard-ware.

My idea and technology have caught up to improve the sport".

iGates will replace flag panels forever.

 Move freely...safer-lighter-better.
