TSG is happy to welcome a new member to the team. As of now, snowboarder Silvia Mittermüller will now officially be riding with TSG helmet and protectors.
Silvia Mittermüller has been enthusiastic about the design, fit and protection performance of TSG’s safety products for two years. Now this partnership is being sealed, and TSG welcomes Silvia as the new official TSG Snowboard Team member.
Silvia Mittermüller has been snowboarding since 1997 and managed to make a name for herself in the international snowboarding circuit pretty fast. Born and bred in the Alps, Silva spent a lot of time in the USA where she was recognized and admired because of her versatile on-snow skills and unique snowboarding style.
Silvia’s schedule for the next season involves filming and contests and again, a lot of time in the States.
And the contest season kicked off super promising for her. Just last week Silvia finished 4th in the slopestyle competition of the New Zealand Open, and 12th in the pipe. The current BGO (Burton Global Tour) ranking features Silvia as 2nd place while she kicked off the TTR (Ticket To Ride) season with a solid 4th place.
TSG’s motto “Designed by Riders” has already become a live experience for Silvia. Following a relaxed wake surf session at Zürisee (lake Zurich), Silvia found herself designing and developing new ideas for next year’s products together with the TSG R&D team.
Silvia chose the Lotus women’s snowboard helmet, the Big Bear kneeguard and Backbone Trooper back protector to protect her on the mountain.
Welcome to the team, Silvia!
