Defy Reality. Own the Planet.
We’re stoked that you’ve been enjoying our SSXIconic Terrain blogs - so we're are back again to give you our thoughts on three more pieces of Iconic Terrain that you can expect to deal with in the new SSX: Platform Jumps, Pillows and Natural Half-Pipes.
What happens when you take the fissures, break them up even more, put a super windy path around them but keep the whole ‘chasm to oblivion’ bit? We have platform jumps! Of course, where there’s a greater chance of disaster, there’s a greater chance of glory. That suits the SSX rider just fine, thanks. Expect a trick happy, express rollercoaster to the global high score table. Of course, this sort of challenge isn’t for everyone – that’s why you’ll only find them on the more challenging regions of the world. Veterans can expect even more extreme short-cuts within these platforms, but the real experts will be the ones treating this dangerous environment as their own supersized personal trick park….
The trouble with jumps and kickers is that you’re always looking for your next one. Not with Pillows. We guarantee you jump after jump after jump after jump after jump after jump after jump. The skill of this comes in stringing together all these generous opportunities into the ultimate score. Don’t be surprised though when you catch sight of a real veteran sailing overhead, superman posed, while the novice throws down a couple of 720’s in a row. It may look like a beginners’ environment, but it’s where the experts come to show off.
Fabricated half-pipes are the domain of the cultural snowboard expression. In real life you’ll find huge lengths of perfectly carved snow surrounded by eager observers hoping to see the next new trick or a glimpse of an upcoming celebrity. Now imagine that, but ten times the size, up in the middle of some unexplored mountain range, filmed by chopper! That’s where we really see the evolution in tricks and style! Be careful though, who knows how stable that terrain really is or where it will take you…
