Gear of the Film: Timeless 2019

Tools used, abused, and reviewed by the pros.

From backcountry to lifestyle gear, we are giving you an inside glance of the gear of the film, "Timeless", from the athletes themselves.  

ALL-MOUNTAIN

1 / VÖLKL Revolt 121

SEGMENT: Wiegele’s

MSRP: $775

“The new Revolt 121 is the absolute best ski for the big cliff stomp. Featuring a multi-layer wood core, it’s strong enough to support big landings, and the specially shaped tip allows for all kinds of fun tricks. The Revolt makes all my airs look and feel better.”

JIM RYAN

 

2 / YES. Hybrid Snowboard

SEGMENT: Switzerland 

MSRP: $550

“The YES. Hybrid is an aggressive freeride powder board with the perfect blend of stiffness and flotation for exceptional performance in fresh snow. Nimble enough to shred natural terrain and powder, this board is a big mountain line charger.”

MORGAN HEBERT

 

3 / ELAN Ripstick 106

SEGMENT: Mustang Powder

MSRP: $900

“The Ripstick 106 can do everything. I ski tour in the backcountry, ski powder, and even play on groomers at the resort with them. They’re fun everywhere and, because of the innovative carbon fiber tube core and Amphibio tech, unlike any other ski on the market.”

GLEN PLAKE

 

4 / SPYDER Solitaire Kit

SEGMENT: Bella Coola 

MSRP: Jacket $750; Bib $600

“Spyder said ‘Let’s design your dream ski outfit,’ and this is it! It’s Gore-Tex Proshell, so it’s waterproof and still breathable, and the bibs were designed to look great without giving up athlete function.”

AMIE ENGERBRETSON

 

5 / POC Fovea Clarity

SEGMENT: Wiegele’s

MSRP: $220

“I love the color of the frames and the lens tints—see and be seen. These new goggles feature high quality lenses with unique mirror coatings engineered to optimize light in any weather condition. Quality lenses is the place to splurge.”

JIM RYAN

 

6 / SCOTT Ultimate Plus Mitten

SEGMENT: Bella Coola

MSRP: $90

“Nothing ruins your day quicker than cold hands. I love these mittens because they are super warm with Primaloft Gold insulation. A goat skin palm and Dryosphere membrane also keep hands dry and cozy.”

AMIE ENGERBRETSON

 

7 / POC Obex SPIN Helmet

SEGMENT: Wiegele’s

MSRP: $200

“This is my go to helmet because it’s the safest—it features innovative materials designed for weight savings and maximum crash protection. You gotta protect your brain—skiing is cool, but so is reading. The fact that it looks good is just gravy.”

JIM RYAN

 

BACKCOUNTRY

 

1 / BLIZZARD Zero G 105

SEGMENT: Chamonix

MSRP: $960

“These touring skis really don’t sacrifice any performance over any of my alpine skis, and they are super light. It’s the perfect ski to bring to Europe where you have big tours and big skiing. You need a ski that will get you there and perform, not one or the other.”

MARCUS CASTON

 

2 / K2 Mindbender 115 C Alliance

SEGMENT: Bella Coola

MSRP: $850

“This is the baddest women’s ski in the new Mindbender line. It’s the perfect balance of aggressive turn initiation, strong edge hold, and playfulness thanks to a light aspen core, Carbon Spectral Braid, and fun tail shape.”

AMIE ENGERBRETSON

 

3 / HELLY HANSEN Odin Mountain Shell Jacket + Bib Pant

SEGMENT: Chamonix

MSRP: Jacket $600; Bib $475

“I’m a simple guy, and I like simple things that get the job done. This bib and jacket are just that: windproof, waterproof, breathable shells with vents and pockets where you need them, and none where you don’t.”

MARCUS CASTON

 

4 / BCA Link Radio 2.0

SEGMENT: Jackson Hole

MSRP: $180

“Communication is important, especially when navigating in the backcountry. I really like the Link 2.0 Radio because it has good battery life, good range, and a loud, crystal clear speaker. It’s small, easy to carry, and above all, makes communicating in the field easy.”

FORREST JILLSON

 

5 / PETZL Ride Ice Axe

SEGMENT: Chamonix

MSRP: $120

“The Petzl Ice Axe is strong yet lightweight, which made touring and skiing with it practical. I felt safer knowing that it was always with me in case things got icy, challenging, or steep. And when we were in Chamonix, we experienced all of the above.”

ERIN MIELZYNSKI

 

6 / SCOTT Patrol E1 22L

SEGMENT: Bella Coola

MSRP: $1,100

“I always ski with an airbag in the backcountry. The Scott Patrol E1 pack uses a battery super capacitor technology, not a lithium battery or canister, so it’s a breeze to travel with. It charges fast and holds its charge for a long time.”

AMIE ENGERBRETSON

 

7 / BCA Tracker 3

SEGMENT: Switzerland

MSRP: $335

“The BCA tracker 3 is the standard for avalanche transceivers. It provides one of the best formats for ease of use, and I love how quick it is to flip to search mode. It’s one of the most user friendly and intuitive beacons on the market.”

MORGAN HEBERT

 

8 / BLACK DIAMOND QuickDraw Probe Tour

SEGMENT: Switzerland

MSRP: $70

“The BD QuickDraw Probe Tour is nice and lightweight, packs down easily, and has all the great features of a longer probe. While lightweight, the QuickDraw Tour is durable and provides a long range of probing.”

MORGAN HEBERT

 

9 / ORTOVOX Beast Shovel

SEGMENT: Switzerland

MSRP: $60

“This shovel has a solid sharp edge on the head that easily cuts through ice and bad layers. It’s comfortable to work with and chops through all types of snow like butter. You never want to have to use your shovel, but if you do, you’d want this one.”

MORGAN HEBERT

 

10 / HEAD Kore 1

SEGMENT: Austria

MSRP: $900

“These boots are stiff (130 flex) and damp enough to handle high speeds thanks to a shell of high performance plastic and Head’s Duo Flex technology. And the lightweight construction and 45 degree range of motion makes touring less tiring.”

BAKER BOYD

LIFESTYLE

1 / HELLY HANSEN Wool Knit Sweater

SEGMENT: Chamonix

MSRP: $150

“Every skier needs a practical and warm cabin sweater. This new sweater from HH makes for the perfect winter layer thanks to its Merino wool/nylon blend that’s cozy and moisture wicking. Bonus: It looks so nice that it can double as a dinner/town sweater.”

ERIN MIELZYNSKI

 

2 / SPYDER Transit GTX Infinium Down Parka

SEGMENT: Bella Coola

MSRP: $500

“This is a great lifestyle jacket. I love the long cut, soft feel of the fabric, and modern military cut. It’s crazy warm and cozy. Another plus: It folds into a compartment to become a super comfy down travel pillow. ”

AMIE ENGERBRETSON

 

3 / K2 Knit Beanie

SEGMENT: Bella Coola

MSRP: $20

“I love my beanies simple and durable. This K2 beanie is just that. I can wear it on the slopes and then keep it on for dinner to hide my hat hair. It goes with everything and I’m loving the fold up beanie style these days.”

AMIE ENGERBRETSON

 

4 / OAKLEY Latch Key Sunglasses

SEGMENT: Chamonix

MSRP: $166

“These sunglasses have incredible prizm/polarized lenses which block the reflection from the snow, have great visibility, and improve contrast. I also love the fact that they stand up to rough adventuring.”

ERIN MIELZYNSKI

 

5 / HELLY HANSEN Stockholm 2 Men’s Boot

SEGMENT: Chamonix

MSRP: $130

“The Stockholm 2 is the perfect moun- tain lifestyle boot. It’s light and feels like a sneaker, which makes it nice to step into after a long day in ski boots. It’s also water resistant and will keep your feet dry and warm.”
