Congratulations​ ​forward​ ​looking​ ​back-country​ ​shredder! I​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​thank​ ​you​ ​for​ ​believing​ ​in​ ​my​ ​Skeats™​ ​skin​ ​cleats​ ​enough​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​purchase​ ​so​ ​early​ ​on!!​ ​ ​The cleats​ ​work​ ​great​ ​as​ ​they​ ​are​ ​right​ ​now.​ ​ ​ ​And​ ​we​ ​are​ ​always​ ​tweaking​ ​the​ ​design,​ s​ o​​ ​any​ ​ideas​ ​or​ ​constructive criticism​ ​would​ ​be​ ​greatly​ ​appreciated. The​ ​first​ ​two​ ​minor​ ​changes​ ​I'm​ ​considering​ ​have​ ​to​ ​do​ ​with​ ​the​ ​velcro​ ​pieces​ ​and​ ​the​ ​way​ ​that​ ​you​ ​fold​ ​each side​ ​of​ ​the​ ​skin​ ​cleats​ ​on​ ​top​ ​of​ ​the​ ​other​ ​after​ ​you​ ​have​ ​affixed​ ​them​ ​to​ ​your​ ​boards. 1.​ ​ ​We​ ​are​ ​considering​ ​sewing​ ​the​ ​velcro​ ​onto​ ​the​ ​strap.​ ​ ​While​ ​the​ ​Skeats™​ ​skin​ ​cleats​ ​function​ ​just​ ​fine without​ ​the​ ​velcro,​ ​I​ ​thought​ ​it​ ​might​ ​neaten​​ ​things​ ​up​ ​and​ ​prevent​ ​any​ ​excess​ ​strap​ ​from​ ​flapping​ ​around​ ​in​ ​an annoying​ ​manner.​ ​Right​ ​now​ ​the​ ​velcro​ ​is​ ​just​ ​glued​ ​on. 2.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​also​​ ​considering​ ​attaching​ ​a​ ​small​ ​elastic​ ​band​ ​to​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​straps​.​ ​This​​ ​would​ ​enable​ ​the​ ​user to​ ​slip​ ​the​ ​ends​ ​through​ ​each​ ​other​ ​when​ ​buckled to​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​excess​ ​in​ ​place.​ ​ ​See​ ​pic​ ​below. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​The​ ​third​ ​and​ ​fourth​ ​changes​ ​are​ ​to​ ​the​ ​physical plate. 3.​ ​Third​ ​change​ ​is​ ​regarding​ ​the​ ​shape​ ​and alignment​ ​of​ ​the​ ​spikes.​ ​ ​We​ ​are​ ​working​ ​on​ ​fin shaped​ ​triangular​ ​spikes​ ​that​ ​would​ ​assist​ ​with glide​ ​and​ ​traction.​ ​ ​The​ ​new​ ​spikes​ ​will​ ​be​ ​off​ ​set and​ ​not​ ​lined​ ​in​ ​parallel​ ​on​ ​the bottom​ ​of​ ​ ​the​ ​plate. 4.​ ​ ​We​ ​are​ ​working​ ​on​ ​getting​ ​an​ ​85mm​ ​and​ ​a 60mm​ ​plate​ ​out​ ​there​ ​ASAP​ ​for​ ​those​ ​of​ ​you​ ​with skinnier​ ​skis. Please,​ ​as​ ​you​ ​use​ ​the​ ​Skeats™​ ​skin​ ​cleats​ ​this winter​,​ ​help​ ​me​ ​to​ ​make​ ​them​ ​better.​​ ​All​ ​of​ ​you who​ ​purchase​​ ​a​ ​pair​ ​before​ ​December​ ​1st​ ​2017 are​ ​eligible​ ​for​ ​a​ ​free​ ​upgrade​ ​as​ ​soon​ ​as​ ​I have​ ​any​ ​improved​ ​models​ ​available.

I​ ​only​ ​ask​ ​that​ ​you​ ​send​ ​me​ ​a​ ​suggested​ ​improvement, and/or​ ​send​ ​me​ ​a​ ​link​ ​to​ ​any​ ​social​ ​media​ ​that​ ​shows​ ​you using​ ​the​ ​Skeats™.​ ​ ​And​ ​you​ ​must​ ​promise​ ​to​ ​give​ ​your older​ ​model​ ​to​ ​a​ ​friend​ ​to​ ​use​ ​in​ ​the​ ​back-country:)!!
