IMG 8277 Agenda LB | 686 x Scion Racing   “Numeric”  Closer Look
We got a chance to take a up close sneak peek look at the 686 x Scion “Numeric” Snowboarding concept car. This ride comes equipped with New Balance tires, a Bern protective carbon fiber helmet/roof, Dragon’s APX frameless goggle as a windshield, and GoPro POV side-mirrors, just to name a few of the special features. This joint is a beast and we wouldn’t mind whipping it around at all. Hit the jump for some more looks.

686 continues their progressive streak with the release today of images of their ill new concept car with Scion. The Numeric is a car completely dedicated in concept to the snowboarding lifestyle and while it’s impossible to read the description of brand-specific modifications without getting inspired, the one major challenge we see for this vehicle is actually getting it to the mountain (the clearance looks a little low). Regardless, its a dope idea. See and read more on Highsnobiety.
