Pro Kits: Joss Christensen’s Gear
| Misc. Clothing:
||Shogo Face Mask
Triple threat Joss Christensen has steadily been making waves throughout the competition scene. One of three guys who compete in all three disciplines regularly, Joss is busy jetting around the world, stacking AFP points as he hunts down Gus Kenworthy for an overall title this year.
For the Park City-native it all starts with the sticks, and for that, Joss skis Fischer's Guru because it's "amazing for for both pipe and slope. It's super light and agile." Coupled with the skis are the Fischer X17 bindings and the Soma X-110 boot which he likes as it "allows for more natural movement and power when jumping." Joss is new to Fischer's program as of last fall, but he's been making good use of the gear.
Also new this year to Joss is Oakley's contribution in the outerwear and goggle department. The Splice goggle has "less pressure around you nose which makes the goggle fit amazing." The Goods Jacket and Flare Pant keep him warm, dry and "have a really good fit: baggy but well-fitted around the knees so you don't look like MC Hammer."
Joss has been protecting his dome with the Giro Shiv helmet, which Rockstar has so nicely painted for him. "It's one of the lightest helmets I've ever used," Joss says of the piece. Joss also rocks a Shogo face mask because "they have made the perfect fitting mask that is made of basketball shorts mesh." His beats pump through some Skullcandy Full Metal Jackets "that have really good sound quality" and his feet are kept comfy by some Bula Basic ski socks. "I have these in so many colors, they are the perfect thickness for me to ski with."
