Elan has ushered in a new era of carving on the slopes with the Primetime. The ski combines a youthful design philosophy with modern technology - and old-fashioned fun on the slopes with a new playfulness. This guarantees an exciting skiing experience. The ski construction of the Primetime has been specially adapted to the skier and his power transmission. Thanks to the Power Match Technology, one achieves a natural control over the edges and an intuitive feeling during the turn. Thus, the Elan Primetime combines power and precision while being incredibly light. Result: an effortless, playful carving experience.


KASK Omega Ski Helmet

KASK launches the Omega, a ski helmet that inspires all giant slalom, downhill and super-G athletes and combines performance with safety. It all started with the idea of developing a racing helmet for high-speed disciplines. The Omega is the result of meticulous development work and outstanding craftsmanship. KASK's expertise from cycling and the insights of World Cup riders resulted in a lightweight helmet that offers an aerodynamic fit and individual feel. The Omega is thus the epitome of excellence and performance - and rightly so.

No more sitting in the snow after the lift, no more fumbling with straps and ratchets: Thanks to the pioneers at Nidecker, snowboard freaks can now hit the slopes as quickly as skiers. That's because the Swiss company has developed Supermatic, an innovative step-in binding that combines the precision of a classic two-strap binding with the convenience of quick entry - without the need for a special boot. The automatic speed entry system is based on a specially developed technology: the Drop-In Tech Highback. This makes the Supermatic a real game changer. Nidecker promises: once you've tried the binding, you won't want to go back to conventional bindings.


Fischer ONE & TWO

Something for the little action fans: the Fischer ONE & TWO. With the innovative children's ski boot, standing on skis is so comfortable that two- to eight-year-olds are quickly enthusiastic about the sport. It was important for Fischer to focus specifically on the needs of the youngest skiers. And those are uncomplicated use and low weight. The boot consists of two parts: the hard ski boot shell with a Velcro fastener instead of the usual ratchets, and a soft PVC gaiter with an easy-to-grip zipper. This makes the warm boot easy to put on and take off by kids and parents alike. And so that they can be worn extra long, the inner shoe and toe box can be adjusted. So the ONE & TWO can grow with the next generation of piste hunters.

Greater running economy is closely linked to lower shoe weight. With this knowledge in mind, the Merrell team spent countless hours on trails testing. The goal was a shoe that weighs just 200 grams in a size 9 (US). The result is the Merrell MTL Skyfire 2, which is once again significantly lighter than its predecessor. The trail running shoe impresses with its perfect combination of durability and functionality, making it ideal for unpredictable terrain. Perfect for anyone looking for the next adrenaline rush while running.

With its growing Re-Source collection, the brand has committed to making more than half of the product weight from environmentally friendly materials.
