SIA: Day Three

SIA: Day Three

What do you get when you combine one sleep deprived editor, half a dozen Red Bulls and a camera? Our third update from the Snowsports Industries of America tradeshow.

SIA Day 3 – Super Gallery

Because we have so many photos and it takes forever to go through our photo galleries, we’re banging out a Super Gallery so you can easily jump through all the photos. If you still want to save any of the images, we’ve got them to the right inside our traditional photo galleries as well.

K2 Skis

The K2 obSethed returns for 09-10 a little wider in the waist with the same tip and tail as years past. Also, the ski is now available in two colorways.

Check out the new graphics on the K2 Extreme. That is extreme.

Fischer Skis

Fischer has created a new shovel system for the Watea line that is designed to channel snow under the ski similar to how the bow of a boat works. The Watea line has won numerous Editors Picks from Freeskier and we can’t wait to get these under our feet at the 2009 Freeskier Magazine Ski Test next month.

The Watea 101 and 94.

The Addict has a new tip and tail that is slightly dug out to reduce swing weight, the Villian and Addict pro remain unchanged for 2009-2010.


Giro is coming into the 2009-2010 with some new ideas and new goggles. This is their new MagClip, the helmet has two magnets positioned under the plastic and a metal clasp that you attach to your goggle strap to keep them from falling off of your helmet and also eliminates the need for a plastic clip to keep the strap in place.

The Giro Revolver helmet now has a convenient bottle opener, for things like root beer.

Giro has created a completely new goggle. In years past, Giro has been focusing on the technical aspects of their design and the optical quality. Now, Giro is focusing on looks.

Giro and Skullcandy collabo helmets with integrated sound. Hook up to your phone, iPod or any other audio device that you may have sitting around.


As always, Skullcandy has more colorways than you can shake a stick at. Chances are you can find a pair of headphones to match whatever jacket / hoodie / tall tee you’ll be wearing next year.

Some poor Skullcandy intern had to hand paint each and every one of these delicious M&M’s. Hey, it isn’t the worst thing an intern has ever had to do.


Electric was touting their new bags this season at SIA.

A new colorway for the Electric EG1. Snazzy.

Electric EG2.


Orage’s campaign is all about respecting the revolutionaries.

Hey Teej.



Dakine has brand new signature bags from their athletes. Here we’ve got Mark Abma’s.

Pollard’s signature gloves.

If the Pollard glove isn’t your style Dakine has plenty of other gloves to offer…

Same with the backpacks…

Don’t forget, Dakine makes more than gloves and packs. They’ve got baselayers, hoodies, shovels and much much more.


POC has some great offerings for next season, along with one of the most coveted lids in the business, the Tanner Hall pro model.

You might as well pick up the matching t-shirt to go along with it.

Jon Olsson also has a pro model with POC, this is one of their new helmets made out of two stages of material. It is designed to be the ultimate in safety and take an absolute beating when involved in a serious impact. Better the helmet than your head, right?

They’re available in solid colors or two tone patterns that look really sweet.

Don’t forget to pair up the helmet with one of the many POC goggles available.

Here’s Digi in the Jon Olsson pro model race suit. Look for Jon to rock this in next year’s X Games.
