Outdoor Retailer: 2020 Ski Gear Preview

Posted April 3, 2019 @ 10:13am | by George Michaelsen

First off, this blog should have been posted 2 months ago -- that's on me (April 2019).  But yea, the Pow skiing in BC was good and the folks that came through the store kept me pretty busy. 

Ski manufacturers are bringing the noise for 2019-2020, absolute EFFing fire constructions with graphics that'll make you want to ditch the skis you bought in January -- It's ok to replace your skis every year.  It's like popping tags on a fresh pair of socks everyday, Tom Brady steeze.  

Pre-Order 2020 Skis now or shop left over 2019 skis here.

The freshest looking skis next year are built by Elan and Atomic, but they're Black Crows -- Mind Blown.

You've had your mind blown, but have you had your mind bent? Mindbender 116 C joined me for a lot of pow days in 19/20.

Keeping it Bent, the Bent Chetler 120 (left) and 100 (right)

Atomic Bent Chetler Skis 2020

Atomic also is bringing back an old favorite, rear entry. So Savory..Atomic Rear Entry Boots

These skis below are bit too much for the boots above.  The Mantra 102 is all the way on the left and The Volkl Kendo 88 (3rd from left), is in fact the best ski Volkl has ever built.

2020 Volkl Freeride Collection

Nordica introduces two new Enforcer models, the 104 Free and 88.  The Enforcer 88 is the chargiest of the bunch while the Enforcer 104 is nice and playful.

Rustler's continue to ruffle feathers.
