....and for Tools4Boards to Optimize Your Slide!
Thank you! It's very helpful as we are interested in keeping marketing costs down to keep product prices down while trying to turn on skiers and riders.
This is the third season for SlideWright.com
. I started it after doing everything but getting and setting up a proper set of vises, tools and stand for working on personal and then my family's array of alpine, tele, xc/nordic/touring, skate & AT skis (for over thirty years). After considerable research, the best options came out of Tools4Boards
due to their excellent value, quality and versatility. For instance, the Cinch
'vise' (reviewed at WildSnow Backcountry Blog
) and included Lasso clamp quickly and easily secures every flavor of ski (and snowboards) we own due to the ability of the lasso to wrap around bindings and brakes for side edge and base work, and is independent of side wall shape, side cut and width.
Slidewright.com evolved out of combining a passion for sliding on snow, taking care of gear, 'hitting the wax' and other factors, along with getting to know Rick Weissenborn, former Canadian downhiller, inventor, manufacturer & owner of Tools4Boards. Talented, creative, passionate, driven and a stand up guy (who also likes beer
) I've also met with one of his industrial designers and the Maplus production manager out of Italy and the future looks very bright. Maplus
is definitely a player at the elite level as can be seen by their partners shown in the catalog and below, and they have expanded across the big pond to offer their recreational to elite waxes, fine tools, helmets, goggles, roller skis and other gear to North Americans with T4B as the distributor.
Slidewright.com is a online sales outlet for Tools4Boards, Maplus and other products and is a facilitator for Dealer Sales for Colorado, Utah, Arizona & New Mexico. Dealers
