→ EXCLUDED - SAS: new the freestyle Nightingale
A beautiful morning of December, David Bouvier of Nightingale arrived at the lab Skipass with a case at secret code and a small chain around the wrist. Inside, in preview, images of the new range Freestyle from now on called SAS, for Seven artistic sins (seven fished artistic)
and a proposal: to be partner of the French launching which takes place with Tignes Monday January 7, hour at which we simultaneously put on line this article.
The new visual universe freestyle of Nightingale went to seek its inspiration on the side of the skateboard. The seven models of the range become a capital sin illustrated by an artist of the universe of the skate.
Nightingale was satisfied to add a logo (nevertheless). The brushes and the pencils are held by great names of the board with casters: Andy Howell, Steve Caballero, Will Barred, Caia Koopman, Andrew Pommier, Mr. Jago and Squindo.7 skis, 7 sins, 7 artists: the equation is profitable
(greediness) is the flagship of the fleet, one cambers reversed (at the ends) with a line of dimension dug located under the foot (which shows 18 m of ray!), to give some hangs on track "Over this small length, around the shoe, you have a true ski, which removes the exclusive character to him gross powders majority of camber reversed market
", specifies David, freestyler first hour in load of the development and marketing of the range twin tips. 115 mm with the shoe, bispatulé, it is the large knife to be ridged. S6
(idleness) is the equivalent of Steeze
of this winter, a large conceited person twin tip for the backcountry. 110 mm with the shoe to send trick the lazy one. S5
(avarice) takes again the lines of dimensions of the Brigade,
to be most general-purpose of the backcountry with 98 mm with the shoe. S4
(anger) is the model which proposes the inserts. It is more the freestyle of this range freestyle
, pure a park, the equivalent of Gtho
with 84 mm with the shoe. S3
(lust), is a powder ski accessible to the juniors who has enough energy to resell to become a ski of jib for adult. Add to that a positioning aggressive price (read: not expensive), a great flexibility in the evolution (to be compared with the Public Enemy
de K2) and 90 mm with the shoe, three qualities which intends it for the greatest number. S2
(the desire) takes again the characteristics of S3 with a more alpine behavior (80 mm), just as S1
(pride), with 76 mm with the shoe.
Each artist affixed on these skis his urban universe, removed from rim, coloured, oneiric proposing an interpretation of the capital sins rich of details which all are not visible with the first glance. The weight of the images, the shock of the cultures. Sas resumes the work started by the Respect program
</EM> which was going to seek talents in urban art to bring back them on snow
(remember JR and its two-tone Scotch tape). "Seven Artistic Sins is much more than one range of skis. It is a complete program and of long duration, which includes skis transformed into works skiables, exposures (in particular with the Grenoble-native gallery Space Junk), an Internet site, catalogues of exposures
", explain David" Bouviax ", " it is besides what the artists like. Our collaboration proceeds on the long term
". Thus during seven seasons, the seven artists will intervene out of the seven models of range SAS.
It is quite beautiful painting but in the skis, what has there again? One does not change a team which gains: constructions remain appreciably the same ones (with always the WRS to reduce the weight), except for the composition of the core which evolved/moved a little. The great innovation is however Freesystem, of the inserts to be able to easily change the positioning of its fixings and to thus choose its stanza, freestyle or regular
. The idea, applied by certain manufacturers (like K2) to their models télémark and by the manufacturers of snowboard since millenia, is one of the alarming spectres of the world freestyle. Available on only one model for the moment (S4), the principle will be wide in the future.
"JE project SAS like an advisability to grow rich the spirit"
,</EM>concluded David "Bouviax" Herdsman "Itis like when you see listenings young person an artist of hip hop, you seized not all. Into growing old, you discover that it samplé a piece of Motown and you will excavate at Motown. I would like that concept SAS gives desire to the young people for going to push the door of the art galleries. These skis are only samples which must give desire for going further.
