evo is Live at the SIA Snow Show 2012 in Denver, CO
The evo crew is headed down to Denver to take a look at all the 2013 skis, snowboards, accessories, outerwear and everything in between. We will show you the good, that bad, the bizarre.
Here is a sneak peak of a few things you will see:
-You want to know about the new 2013 Burton Nug (evo in-store only)? What do the 2013 Atomic Bent Chetler’s look like? Have you heard about about Oakley Canopy Goggles? Armada Outerwear now has Gore-Tex! Plus a ton more!
What do you want to see?
-We have been hard at work meeting with our buyers to pick out cool new products and updates to all your favorite gear. But we want to know what you want to see…just post up on our Facebook wall and ask!
Where do you see all the new 2013 gear?
What is the SIA Snowshow?
-For over 50 years, the SIA Snow Show has been bringing the entire snow sports market together in one place. All your favorite vendors from Burton to Armada will be there showcasing the latest trends, innovations, product lines and styles, the SIA Snow Show represents the only global event where 800+ brands are presented in an authentic environment both on and off the snow; all powered by the passion and culture of snow sports…not to mention the great dinners and after parties!
The 2013 ABS Airbag System
The checklist of essential avalanche emergency equipment has added a crucial item.
- Partner? Check.
- Avalanche transceiver? Check.
- Probe? Check.
- Shovel? Check.
- ABS Airbag? Check and double check.
- Backcounty Safety Class? Check.
With more and more folks heading out into the backcountry, avalanche safety and awareness have become a prominent part of skiing for many skiers and snowboarders. Avoiding and preventing avalanches are your greatest weapons against avalanche burial, but in the unfortunate case of an avalanche, there has been no innovation that has been proven to prevent more burials than the ABS Airbag System.
2013 anon M1 Goggle
The crew over at anon invited evo to their Seattle showroom to take a look at the new anon M1 Goggle. I enjoyed playing with magnets when I was a kid…anon has brought back that joy with the M1 Goggle. They have perfected the art of quick change goggle lens technology with Magna-Tech; the M1 Goggle is our pick for 2013.
As you can see from the video, the lens can be swapped out in just a couple seconds with a simple pull, switch and snap of the lens. And yes, the lens can be swapped while wearing them! I bet you can even change them mid-air in case of a foggy lens and you need to spot your landing. On or off your face, the M1 Goggle lens is fast and easy to change.
Exclusively from anon, they call them the “pinnacle of performance with an effortless perspective.” Personally, we think they are awesome for any mountain where the weather conditions can change minute to minute, especially here up in the PNW. Plus, rumor has it that each M1 will come with two lenses as well, to cover you from grey bird to blue bird!
evo and the Service Board
The Service Board empowers youth to overcome obstacles and build strong community through snowboarding, public service, and a curriculum of social justice. We support tSB with product donations, a portion of our gallery sales, and the proceeds of our 10th anniversary party.
tSB believes that fun, discovery, and adventure are valuable and productive teaching tools, and we couldn’t agree more.
Many of us at evo were fortunate enough to benefit from such experiences and we want to help ensure that today’s youth have similar opportunities.Your donation can provide anything from a scholarship for one youth to go on a snowboarding trip to a home-cooked meal or a trip to the mountains on a Grey Line bus.
ATOMIC TRACKER 16 & SALOMON GUARDIAN 16 AT BINDINGS AT evo
It was only a matter of time before we saw another alpine ski company release a new backcountry touring binding. The sister companies, Atomic and Salomon have teamed up efforts to release the Atomic Tracker 16 and Salomon Guardian 16 (coming soon), respectively. evo got a chance to check out the Tracker along with the rest of the 2013 Atomic line earlier this week and we think Atomic and Salomon really nailed it on the head with this one. The engineers and athletes wanted to create an Alpine Touring binding that sat low to the ski, could handle being mounted on a wide ski and was not only easy to switch between ski and tour but was also very secure. Their athletes and engineers agree they hit a home run with this one.
