Report from SIA 2012

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I arrived a day late due to obligations at ESA. To my dismay, they started the show without me. Even with our late arrival, we were quick to catch up. I had quite a few obligations to keep with my Start Haus duties but I was able to fit in a few photo shoots and will be photoing as the show goes on the rest of the weekend. 

 

A few notables as I post pics....

 

Blizzard...Very well the most complete line of both skis and boots, other manufacturers need to take notice.

 

Goode...A complete reinvention of their line, I am looking forward to seeing if they can stand up to the hype

 

Kastle..a great line just got bigger but am concerned with too much overlap. 

 

Volkl...It seems they are trying to make a better Blizzard

 

Fischer...Amazing custom shell boot on the way..more to come here

 

Pics...

Wow.  I actually like the new graphic on the Blizzard Answer/One/Crush.  Finally they did something right.

post #3 of 18

I am really digging the new Nordica and Fischer graphics.  You would think Volkl would ditch that gawdawful black color scheme on the Gotamas after two renditions- nope.   Any shots of the little guys?  Icelantic, Moment, etc?

Dang if those black and white graphics didn't immediate conjure up memories of the old Volkl Zebra from the late 60's/early 70's. 

Any one got an image of those, for old times sake? I could not find one

Phil, thanks so much for putting this stuff up.. Looks like Volkl has taken a cue from Ski Logik?   Really sweet Nordi TS's and Blizz is in overdrive for sure.  

 

 

Still looking for my next favorite ski... 

 

 

 

Also, check out Phil and Trek on the Kastle FB pics!  (a keen eye of Greg Merz for the spot!)

I planned to have more pics to post up but I ended up running late at the show and my camera got locked up at a booth. Soooo. pics tomorrow. 

 

I will say that we just got back from the Legend of ahhh's preview. Complete review coming soon. Dead tired here. 

post #11 of 18

Can you tell me anything about those Tecnica boots pictured?

post #12 of 18

I have a lot of pics and will post when I get some time. I decided to go to the show at the last minute and ended up taking the train to Denver. Arrived back home at 5:30 am Saturday

and headed off to ski the next couple days. Now I am trying to get caught up and also get some sleep.

post #13 of 18

Blizzard...Very well the most complete line of both skis and boots, other manufacturers need to take notice.

 

Volkl...It seems they are trying to make a better Blizzard

 

 

Phil, these are the best 2 statements Ive read for a long time!!!

 A few of my pics -- I'll try not to overlap with Phil P.

Fischer Skis US, can you provide any information on the successors to this years Progressor line?  I'd be very interested in hearing about the changes to the 2012's and how they compare to the 9+ and 10+.  Thanks!!
