Green Skis: Rossignol Attraxion Echo

Boots and ski equipment made in environmentally-friendly ways are easier to find than ever before. Like a new women's ski from Rossignol, the Attraxion Echo, which is made from as many sustainable, low-impact materials as possible. All that, and it's as smooth a ride as any you'll find.

Black, or gray…black, or gray?  Not too long ago that was pretty much the only choice shoppers had when perusing the ski glove wall. But more and more vibrant colors are returning to ski gear, and that palate is moving onto the hands, too. Swedish glove crafter Hestra is leading the charge, working with pro skiers to cater to a younger, bolder market.

Hot Hands

Hestra brings the rainbow to next season’s glove line. We’ve got a preview.

From the second Dynafit added Eric Hjorleifson to their pro team, the skiing community has anxiously awaited some new developments in boot technology. By using the tech developed in their widely successful TLT5 boots and marrying it with the ideas from Hoji’s Frankenboot, Dynafit has created the Vulcan. Intended for the aggressive freeride touring/mountaineering crowd, the Vulcan is one of the stiffest touring boots I’ve ever tried on (though I didn’t get to ski it). However, what impressed me the most—even more than its light weight (1590 grams)—is the range of motion in walk mode. When you pull out the removable tongue (much like the TLT5), this boot has near unmatched stride length (both fore and aft), especially amongst other aggressive, downhill-oriented boots. I personally am pumped for the arrival of this boot next season. It will do a big part to change the perception of what is possible in boot tech, especially in the tourability of aggressive AT boots.

Dynafit's New Gear

Between Bavarian pow turns and steins of weißbier, one editor got the scoop on some exciting new developments at Dynafit during a trip to that brand's homeland—including a new Eric Hjorliefson collaboration boot called the Vulcan.
