Both brands are all about Riders to Riders attitude.
Shred was founded by F.I.S reject, Olympic Gold Medalist & World Cup GS Champ Ted Ligety and mega-brain engineer and skier Carlo Salmini. Ligety as a little debate going on with F.I.S. setting up a new standard for GS racing skis.
Slytech is top-notch protective gear. Body armour and helmets with the latest materials and tech stuff.
The kind folks in the factory were kind enough to send me a nice goodie bag for starters.
BTW. These products are represented in Finland by Sail Clean oy & Snyffe.
I have recently started a new era in telemark skiing with a fresh partner: Black Diamond Equipment.
The decision to change trusted partner was not an easy one. I have been skiing with K2 since 1998. That is 13 years. Since 2001 I have been lucky to work with K2 Europe in their team.
But. Me and blood brother Skipe Oivo got offered a possibility to continue working actively in on domestic and international level. We continue our backcountry-hog -lifestyle and new partner offers us great variety of top quality tools.
More updates on what´s coming later..
