Slide Awards 2008

The Slide awards recognised the hottest, most talked about products at the recent Slide trade show – the ones that got the buyers excited and prompted ‘I want one of those!’ exclamations from customers.

The awards recognised the ‘Best in Show’ in 3 categories: Hardware, Software and Accessories. And the winners were…

Hardware Category – Salomon Custom Shell
Customised boot fit has previously focused on the liner of your boot, but now Salomon has designed a boot with a custom shell. In a simple 20-minute process, boots will give such a precise fit, there’ll be absolutely no compromise on comfort. Boots are designed for your feet by your feet. Genius!

Software Category – DB Leisure (Thaw LTD) Bamboo base Layer
Thaw is a brand that designs thermal base layers to keep you snug during outdoor pursuits. Thaw are launching a new line of bamboo thermal underwear to move towards more eco-friendly material that still ticks all the technical criteria. These clever pants wick moisture away from your skin, keep you comfortable in all temperatures and are naturally antibacterial – fabulous!

Accessories Category – Noble Custom Ortovox S1 Avalanche Transceiver
Being outside in powder is what we enjoy – but there is also a very real threat of danger when venturing off-piste. A handy protection tool is a the Ortovox S1 which reflects the actual situation in the avalanche field, allows exact, efficient pinpoint search with indication of depth of a buried person and offers signal isolation and marking of found persons. Literally, a lifesaver.
