By Liftopia Despite the name of this influential snowboarding technology, no magnets are actually used in the making of magne-traction edges. Which is sort of a bummer because then we might be a little bit closer to those hover boards in Back to the Future.
Magne-traction is simply a wavvy edged snowboard instead of the classically straight, traditional snowboard edge. It was developed a little over a decade ago by Lib Tech and pioneers Steven Cobb and Mike Olson.
