Lately, we’ve been talking a lot about the new gear we saw at the OR / SIA tradeshow, and the gear we’ve been testing on snow.
We recorded a conversation at OR / SIA where we went over some of the most notable products and trends.
Then we published our extremely prestigious and scientific Blister OR /SIA Awards, which you should definitely check out.
Then we posted a GEAR:30 episode, “Testing Pow Skis in Alaska & Japan + Shop Talk,” where we talk about fat skis, price-point products, and the complicated world of ski boot norms + binding certifications + real-world bench test results.
And yesterday, we published our initial list of the products we’re about to start testing in Telluride (it’s a pretty big list, and you should definitely check it out).
But now we’d like to hear from you.
Given what you’ve seen so far, what 18/19 gear are you’re most intrigued by? Most skeptical of? Any “take my money right now!!!” products? Which category is the most interesting — outerwear, boots, bindings, skis, or boards? Frontside carvers? Fat touring skis? “50/50” products? Are you more curious about the new inbounds gear or the new backcountry gear?
