Henry Jackson sat down with Salomon Snowboards‘ Global Brand Manager David Pitschi, to get the word on the street for latest news coming out from the Salomon Snowboards factory, which has supplied the legends for more than a minute now.
With Daniel Franck and Michelle Tagart as their original R&D riders, Salomon got off to a flying start with their tech sandwiched snowboards and simple graphics. With a big European presence, riders like David Benedeck were snapped up by the emerging brand.
These days Salomon have a tight team stretching across the 7 continents (well 5) and have a smorgasbord of different riders. Rail technicians like Jed Anderson, LNP, Bode Merrill and Chris Grenier all lead the charge with a Salomon strapped to their feet. Riders like Brage Richenburg, Jamie Nicholls and Jenny Jones are the spearhead of the competition side of all things Salomon.
David runs us through the Trigger binding, Chris Grenier’s pro model binding for the 2015 2016 season. Coming in lightweight on both weight and wallet, it’s a jib orientated binding if you’re looking for a mid-flex strap that’ll keep you locked in.
