Trekchick and I got a chance toe preview some 2015 gear before SIA and I thought I would share with yor what we can. Some of the gear has an embargo towards the end of the month so those particular items will have to wait. We will share what information that we are allowed to and hod back on items that we know have to wait. As get get permission to add, we will.
First, Dalbello will be releasing a pro model of the IL Moro that will be one of the popular boots in Sochi. This new IL Moro will be the KR2 lower with a modified IL Moro/KR2 Pro upper. Dalbello designed the original IL Moro as a park boot but some of their top athlete such as Tanner Hall we still skiing the KR2 Pro so Dalbello decided to create a new boot and this is the result of that project.
Rossignol/Look are coming out with the new Axial3 binding, this new binding for 2015 keeps the proven toe from previous generations but where the change has come is in the new heel. The new heel is designed around a new oversized heel linkage which increases the coupling strength all while DECREASING the weight significantly. It is also a metal pocket for the pole so releasing the binding will not deface the finish..@Rossi Smash should be very happy. There is also a new Pivot 12 at a $249 price point.
As you know, Scott's "The Ski" collection is near and dear to my heart and the series has some new colors and graphics for 2015 and the nine has been expanded to include the Back Majik series. The Black Majiks are an upper 70mm series that is aimed more towards the frontside skier. The are designed with Scott's proven 3D sidecut for an exciting turn shape. Scott is also reintroducing The Ski ski poles.
Dynsatar has brought their award winning Cham 5 point sidecut to the frontside of the mountain with the new Powertrack series. There will be an 79, 84 and 89 waisted versions of this new series that should be some of the more versatile ski in this category.
While we are on the subject, Dynastar's sister company Rossignol has expanded their air tip design down in the 7 series to the Sin 7 and over to the very good frontside Experience and Temptation collections.
Yes, there will be more to come, this was just a teaser. I have been out on a few other 2015 products that I am very excited about but have to wait to tell you about. Other news that I can tease you about..Atomic is going soft, Head is feeling joyful and feeling it's stripes. Volkl has carbon build up. Blizzard is continuing to flip it's core. Tecnica is moving at Mach1 speed. Nordica has an NRGy source. Lange is feeling bluer than ever. K2 has a potion for the ladies and a Remedy to cure it. Line is feeling Supernatural Salomon is going back the the LAB. These are just a few puns I will leave your with.
