RIDES RECEIVES OLYMPIC NOD
HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL Tierney Rides, LLC, is the official supplier
of the T-Board, a two-wheeled street board that delivers the true carve
and ride dynamics of snowboarding on paved surfaces, to the US Snowboard
Members of the US Snowboard Team have tested the T-Board and found
it to be a great cross-training tool, Said Peter Foley, Head Coach
US Snowboard Team. The body movements used in T-boarding are very
similar to snowboarding.
Most importantly T-boarding provides the same carving sensation as snowboarding.
Weve worked very hard to develop a technology that allows
you to carve in and out of turns using the same techniques
used in snowboarding and skiing, said Kurt Tierney, CEO Tierney
Rides. In addition to the national press weve earned, its
really an honor to have top athletes acknowledge that our product meets
the strict training standards for Olympian snowboarders.
The T-Board will be featured in Junes Maxim & Stuff Magazine
and Julys Wired Magazine. It was also previously showcased nationally
on Good Morning America, ESPN Summer X-Games and CNN Headline News. "We've
tried everything on the market, and this is the first streetboard that
delivers a ride that duplicates the lower leg movement of a snowboard.
It's a extremely effective way to practice technique and keep a snowboarders
muscles conditioned year round," said Scott Palmer, Program Director,
Stratton Mountain Snowboarding School.
The T-Board is the brainchild of Kurt Tierney and his brother Tyler. The
first prototype was constructed from pieces of hardware in their moms
garage in the spring of 1999.
Tierney Rides, headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL., is committed to
creating the most innovative ride technology on the market, with performance
and feel above everything. Tierney will continually push to perfect the
T-Board ride and soon release the exciting Cross Training downhill street
