They will all be pretty good for riding and skateboarding, as well as being my everyday foot. My favourite looking foot is the Renegade, it's so simple too. My prosthetist has something like the Venture lined up for me, with an adjustable ankle and an adjustable foot. He's going to set the ankle tension and then show me how to adjust the tension on the foot to see what works for me. The Renegade and the Venture should be available on the NHS, there's every chance that I could take them for a test drive in the future. The Rush is pretty new to the USA market, so we won't be seeing that for a while over here.

Speaking of the future, I could well be a cyborg one day.

These legs are quite tough, perhaps we should all get converted.

Wow! In some ways, Leg 2.0 will be an upgrade...

I'm a bit worried that my leg will damage the shonky council ramps if I slam on my skateboard.

Cool, pad up to protect the ramp rather than the skater...

Fit the Pathfinder with a Kashima coated RP23 and it would look amazing!

Or a Cane Creek double barrelled thing?

Markieboy, did you watch the Grand Designs from a few weeks ago, with the triple amputee? Interesting stuff.

Cane Creek is certainly more bling and techie but may be a bit heavy

I'm not usually a weight weenie, but the pathfinder is far too heavy 785-817g without the footshell gubbins. The other feet are around 500g.

I finally got the info for my foot from my prosthetist, It's an Endolite DR2. Not a bad spec for my first foot, it's quite sturdy and user adjustable. You don't usually get something like this for your first foot, but the prosthetist knows that I'm going to cycle and skateboard, so he specced this. It works with the Multiflex ankle, so that I will get adjustable movement in the ankle and user adjustable stiffness in the foot.
