YYOYOYO PEOPLE
I talked shit about these ramps.
I had not ridden these ramps.
I rode these ramps today.
I will no longer talk shit about these ramps.

Long story short, $30 with free shipping is an amazing price. Super solid, and the tile is inexplicably awesome.
I'd go for a nice wood base but seriously, these are really nice.
Buy them people.

Yeah ikr... Trying something IRL and changing your opinion is just so fishy, isn't it?

It's mainly just because the amount of negativity he had that instantly turned into overwhelming support and ridiculous love for the ramps. I dunno. Stood out as funky to me. Sorry for having an opinion.

I get you. It's just that we all got to try these today and feel like we need to correct what we said.

Nothing fishy bro.

Ahhh, my bad guys. I didn't know there was a meetup where they were at. It was funny seeing a bunch of people saying not so positive things to extremely supportive all at the same time.

Eh, 

Like I said, this is why getting some of your products out to people before starting your company is so important. If they were sent out to some people first, or launched at this NSFW event or w/e it's called,  then there would have been the positivity from the start. 

Companies spend hundreds, thousands, hundreds of thousands, and millions on product launches depending on the size of the company/product. 

Spend a few bucks sending some out to people, or go to an event for the official launch and all of a sudden you have serious support. 

Great to hear they are good guys and well done braeden for sponsoring the event and sticking with his company idea.

You're absolutely correct, R&D is incredibly important.

The thing is, if i remember these benches right (no picture right now?), they are pretty poor craftmanship.. The stone and epoxy being good doesn't really make it a good product, anyone could by the same stone and the same epoxy and make ramps just like these.

I think if that was true, people wouldn't be saying how amazing they are right now.
Maybe there is something we're missing happy

They met the dude at a meetup, he is a nice guy so they say nice things about his benches.. Nothing fancy about that. And the benches might grind nice, and be a nice ride, but i still think they should be improved.

There is always room for improvement, with any product. I just think that people as educated in the FB world as Ollie and Taylor would know the difference between a usable obstacle and a great obstacle. I do understand where you are coming from. He should get his products out to more people so that they can review the products and let people know. I believe that these are very good, due to the opinions from the people in this thread. But I just can't buy one until the price lowers, UNLESS I have proven to me that they are 100% worth it. That may be proven to me by a few reviews or maybe try someone's.

It's definitely a great obstacle, but some improvements could be made. For example, it's way too heavy. Shipping would kill. And yeah, he definitely needs to PROVE that it is worth what he is charging, which, for a bench, might be hard to do without using in person.

Can we see some more pics of some obstacles?

From what people say, they grind nice, but I also remember they weren't the best of quality. I guess pics would help out.

They weren't as pretty as they could be. The two that I used had epoxy all over the under side. But other than that the quality was nice. His dad is a tile guy, so the glues are top of the line and the tiles are apparently very expensive.

One thing to note, is that if you have painted trucks, after about 10 minutes you will not have painted trucks. That does not mean that these are not smooth, they are. They're just... abrasive.

Posting this large on purpose. I cropped this from an irrelevant image, but it shows nice detail of the tile's texture and bevel. The texture is smooth but prevalent, and the bevel is very nice, definitely professionally cut.

Here you can see it being used as a wall ride on the compiny park, which was a very fun park (if anybody was wondering).

Glad to see Braeden getting the recognition he deserves:) I know he puts a lot of time and effort into these.
