Xenon has strong designers, that don't afraid to be ahead of market. :thumb:
You can see, Cab gets idea few years after Xenon.

Also don't forget about design trends. Everyone is going to simplicity & typography last years, so no wonder big brands are following global trends.

Do not get your panties in a bunch over shit like this really who gives a rats ass about this, really you have too much time on your hands if this bothers you so much. Man the Zenon pimps are getting in a new category. I know some dirt about Zenon but dont need to broadcast it so change your diaper and go kite. :rollgrin:

Have you heard about Apple suing Samsung ?
They won a whole bunch of money just because the Samsung smartphone "looked like" the iPhone .

"everyone is going to simplicity & typography last years" that's been a global trend within graphic industry for a few years no I think.

Graphic trends stem from places like deviant art, companies specializing in developing fashion graphic styles, it is rare that you get original art works/graphic styles nowdays, it's gottabe cool to sell.

I like to take permanent markers to my board and add my own art! unfortunately it rubs off after a while.

Ozone have this cool new thing now that you can choose the color combo on your kite.
Let's see which brand will be the first to do the same with boards.

Xenon actually copied my Old LF element that i used black vinyl on to customize.. :roll:
That design language is old news in the snowboard industry anyways with most brands tapping into it.

Its not original, Xenon copied it from somewhere..

I dont think the cab and xenon board is that similar anyway..

Also, if you wanna see what colors are cool next year.. www.pantone.com

Xenon has strong designers blah blah blah, graphics people inadvertently copy each other I think, sure this guy who wrote this post is affiliated with Zenon or is a paid troll. When I wrote my other post I knew he would hide, whaddup troll speak, haha! :nono:

pretty sure xenon doesn't have any copyrights associated with a white board with a red rectangle on one edge.

Its pretty boring if you ask me but then again I never liked Xenon's graphics. I do however thing they look "better" on a surfboard but still they look kinda "meh" to me.
