I read on instagram that Tomo has ended his 10 year relationship with XTR . I have always been interested in their tech with blanks and wondered why it hadn’t caught on in Australia. In the videos I’ve watched on XTR blanks , they don’t absorb water and come across as really strong . Are their blanks simply not flexible enough or too hard to work with ? They seem to have a large following in the US . I’ve asked the question before if anyone in Australia was doing similar blanks ? But got no replies. Has anyone ridden one of these blanks here in Australia and care to comment ? Apparently the machine that is used to make these blanks is 200 ft long .

Thanks for that udo , do you think that being closed cell foam that would make them less flexible and maybe the reason it hasn’t taken off here ? And possibly harder to work with ?
