At the ISPO tradeshow in Munich, Germany, earlier this month, Boa Technology’s partner brands Atomic, Deeluxe and Smith all came away with awards for innovative new products that employ the Boa Closure System. Here’s the scoop on the winners from each of these category-leading brands:
Atomic Race Skate Nordic Ski Boot
Gold award winner, Cross Country Ski category
The new Atomic Race Skate is the world’s first skating race boot to feature the ultra-effective Boa Closure system. This smart system combines a thin, highly durable, stainless-steel lace cable with a mechanical reel on the exterior of the boot, which ensures a perfect fit with one quick turn of the Boa dial. The Race Skate is equipped with the carbon-reinforced SNS Pilot Racing outsole, so that all power is transferred forward. The outsole makes the boot exceptionally stiff – thereby ensuring precise ski control and explosive acceleration.
Deeluxe Spark Summit Snowboard Boot
ISPO award winner: Snowboarding
With a leather shell and lining, the Deeluxe Summit Snowboard boot offers premium performance and decadent luxury for backcountry boarding. Paired with the Boa Closure System, the C3 lacing provides the perfect fit and for a responsive ride and all-day dependability. The Spark Summit has a leather lining and Sympatex membrane to regulate moisture and maximize comfort.
Smith Optics Vantage
ISPO Award Winner: Ski Helmets
Updated Fall for 2013, the interior of the Vantage features Boa’s new FS360 fit system, which wraps around your head’s circumference to provide the highest level of resolution, delivering 1 millimeter of incremental adjustment with each click of the Boa dial. The Vantage is a hybrid shell helmet with Aerocore technology that maximizes full coverage protection and increases airflow. Combine this with the Smith-pioneered AirEvac technology for goggle integration, and the Vantage delivers the perfect blend of technology and style.
