Stomping new tricks on the jumps, jibs and other features you’ll encounter this season is going to be tough. However, looking good while doing it all is easy. Simply refer to the 10 great gear options for park laps galore, below.
1. Bumper Walnuts Helmet — Shred
Tom Wallisch’s signature helmet is tough, designed for multi-impacts. Shred’s Infinite RAA (Rotational Acceleration Absorption) protects against rotational impacts; unlike the market standard which allows for relative movement along two pathways, Infinite RAA protects against impacts from any direction.
2. Simplify Walnuts Goggle — Shred
Tom Wallisch’s pro model goggle boasts a simple lens-swap system; a hydrophobic treatment on its vent foam that keeps moisture from fogging the lens; and super-smooth triple-layer face foam, so comfortable it’s dubbed “whipped cream.”
3. Backpro One Lite Harlaut — Slytech
This Henrik Harlaut pro model features Slytech One, a foam that hardens upon impact, and an adjustable Velcro belt to ensure comfort and safety go hand in hand. Protect your spines, folks.
4. Throttle Glove — Armada
On warmer winter days, turn to the Throttle. Built-in stretch provides a snug yet comfortable fit; beautiful leather keeps your style points maxed out; and grips in the palm and fingers yield optimal grabbing.
5. Soundsport Wireless Headphones — Bose
Whether you’re skiing or exercising, count on this headphone to deliver prime sound and stay secure. The tips’ shape creates a smooth seal in your ear and flexible wings provide additional support. Its Bluetooth-enabled and also sweat and weather resistant.
6. Jester 16 ID — Marker
Built with lightweight yet incredibly strong magnesium, this bad boy serves up incredible power sans bulk. Sole I.D. tech allows both traditional and alpine touring (ISO 9523) boot sole compatibility and the horizontal spring in the toe absorbs impacts when you send it to the Moon.
7. Tom Walisch LTD Ski Boots — Full Tilt
Tom Wallisch’s pro model boot returns for its seventh season—its second as an exclusive limited edition boot from Full Tilt. The three-piece boot features a moderate, customizable flex; heat moldable Intuition liners; a roomy toe box; rubber soles and a 99-mm last. It’s built to withstand Wallisch-esque terrain park assaults.
8. Fatigue 2L Jacket — Saga
The Fatigue 2L Jacket boasts nylon stretch fabric for essential mobility; a 15K/10K rating for ample breathability and waterproofing; it’s 100-percent seam sealed to help to further curtail moisture invasions. The tailored fit and leather trim are just two examples of additional, thoughtful design elements.
9. Fatigue 2L Pant — Saga
Like its counterpart, this pant is constructed of nylon stretch fabric allowing for ease of movement and a good lookin’ tailored fit. Reinforced kick panels, articulated knees and inner-leg vents are a few of the key touching points. Beyond that, construction features match those of the jacket.
10. Tom Wallisch Pro — Line Skis
We tout this Line offering as an amazing park-centric ski for any ability. A maple wood core yields stiffness for sending ‘er big and carbon inserts provide plentiful pop. Thick edges and Line’s Capwall construction (a cap build up top with sidewalls over the edge) translate to durability.
