Head Skis has officially inked a new deal with up-and-comer Evan McEachran. The 17-year-old out of Ontario, Canada has exploded onto the freeskiing scene after taking the top spot at the AFP World Championships, last season.
“To me, the Head team represents a progressive movement in our sport,” says McEachran. “The athletes that Head supports are top-notch. Whether it be in freeskiing, racing, or big mountain, I can confidently say I look up to the rest of the Head Wintersports team.”
Heading into the 2015 Winter X Games, McEachran is looking to break into a podium position on his new equipment.
“Evan is a leader of the next generation of slopestyle skiers,” said Jake Largess, Global Freeskiing Team Manager at HEAD Wintersports. “To complement his natural talent and endless bag of tricks, Evan is an amazing person with a true love for skiing. We are excited to see what he is capable of over the next couple of years.”
Congratulations to Head and McEachran on the partnership. I speak for everyone at FREESKIER when I say that we are looking forward to watching the future of freeskiing unfold.
While competing at the Winter X Games, McEachran will be equipped with Head Caddy skis, Head Raptor Overkill boots and Tyrolia AAAttack 16 bindings. McEachran will be competing at X alongside Head Wintersports athletes Alex Schlopy, Simon Dumont, Jesper Tjäder, Aaron Blunck, PK Hunder and Keri Herman.
