Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2019 – Part 2 – Kate’s World
We have so much coverage from this year’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show, that we are breaking it into two parts. Kate Agathon and photographer Will Snyder met with tons of companies, met lots of amazing athletes and even attended political meetings. Pretty awesome stuff! Below is the skiing gear they covered.
For 19/20 HEAD expands the KORE line to a woman-specific freeride ski. Available in 99W and 93W, the incredibly lightweight ski is constructed with graphene-KOROYD- carbon sandwich cap construction, KARUBA lightweight wood core, and is perfect for the woman who wants a higher performing ski to do both touring and in bounds.
Meier Skis introduces the Prospector, its first backcountry ski. Manufactured in Colorado, offered in two widths (96 and 106). Designed to be lighter on backcountry uphill treks, the Prospector is backcountry and touring hybrid that has superior lightweight strength.
Named Best of Show by Freeskier, Icelantic Skis introduces the Riveter 85 and 95. Lightweight and powerful, this versatile all-mountain ski is designed to be the only ski you will ever need in your quiver.
MSR Lightning Ascent ultralight, all-terrain snowshoes undergo a dramatic transformation in Winter 19/20. Paragon bindings replace the strappy PosiLock bindings to keep your foot securely in place and ensure quick removal.
Making its first Outdoor Retailer appearance in years, Skullcandy showcased the Icon headphone, a no-slip, low profile headband featuring large, glove-friendly customizable buttons that play/pause music, or take a call with one tap. The Icon has Bluetooth/wireless technology, a microphone, tap tech call, and track control, and 10 hours of battery life.
Inspired by the past, Kodiak boots introduce the Fundy, a men’s urban outdoor boot gives you style with outdoor recreation function including waterproof and sealed seams, washed canvas quarter and suede upper, 200gm of Thinsulate insulation, and removable leather memory foam intake.
