Tested by the world's toughest freestyle ski teams.
“IT'S PERFECT, NOW
MAKE IT BETTER.”
This is the directive given by our very own
tough mother, Chairman Gert Boyle. It’s the
reason we test our products against every
type of no good, day-ruining condition the
skies of the mighty Pacific Northwest can
deliver. Sure, it makes life hell for us, but it
means great gear for you. So when Gert
bestows her famous stamp of approval,
you’re duly equipped to stay outside long
after the featherweights have gone.
TESTED TOUGH BY THE WORLD'S BEST FREESTYLE SKI TEAMS

ELITE DOESN'T JUST HAPPEN
Competing at the highest level against the world’s top athletes isn’t just something that happens once every four years. For elite skiers, it’s an all-day, everyday pursuit of excellence that involves routinely pushing the limits of physical and mental endurance. That’s why we’re proud to sponsor the world’s toughest freestyle ski teams as they put themselves—and our gear—to the test.

WHEN THE TOUGH GET GOING
For world-class skiers, training doesn’t stop when the snow melts. From epic lifts at the gym and endless runs on the trail to gravity-defying jumps and knee-rattling landings on the mountain, these athletes are relentlessly pursuing their dreams when nobody else is watching.

THE BEST GUINEA PIGS ON EARTH
The path to the podium isn’t a straight line. For every bluebird day there’s a blizzard, for every epic air there’s a crash, and for every perfect run there are a whole lot of practice ones. We channel all that joy and pain into making our gear even better with technology like waterproof-breathable OutDry™ Extreme to help the world’s best skiers adapt to the harshest conditions on earth. And when their moment to shine comes, they’ll be ready.
