Three-time X Games gold medalist Bobby Brown joins Crosson Skis

Colorado-based pro skier Bobby Brown is one of the most popular freeskiers in history. Brown, 27, is known for his incredible talent in the disciplines of slopestyle and big air, as well as his ability to translate those skills into handmade jumps in the backcountry. Today, Washington-based Crosson Skis announced the signing of the decorated freeskier to its athlete team, where he joins good friend and fellow pro Banks Gilberti.

Brown has mostly kept out of the spotlight for the past few seasons, and this signing is an interesting one because of the identity of Crosson. The boutique, four-year-old manufacturer develops skis made completely out of carbon fiber in order to really shed weight from the final product, while relying on the material’s stiff nature for stability. This isn’t the first time a high-profile professional skier has partnered with a high-end ski brand selling skis to a specialized clientele. Bode Miller has been making a splash with Bomber Skis, of late. Whether it’s a trend amongst athletes remain to be seen, but the entire industry is likely to be abuzz as Brown steps back into the skiing spotlight.

About Crosson:

Founded in 2014, Crosson’s stated goal is “to create the most technically advanced skis ever made.” With experience utilizing aerospace manufacturing techniques and materials, the Washington-based manufacturer has developed “space-age” skis made from carbon-fiber. Crosson sells three ski variations: powder, all-mountain and park. One lucky winner will take home the powder-specific Marauder via an upcoming FREESKIER giveaway, stay tuned for more details, but you don’t want to miss this one.

For now, keep an eye on some big happenings in the world of Bobby Brown and Crosson Skis, this winter.
