Buoyed by the exceptionally wintery conditions both at home and abroad, coupled with outstanding performances at world-class level for British skiers and snowboarders, there was a positive energy reverberating around Slide. The invitation by SIGB to meet in the show café for a post-show drink went down well with both visitors and exhibitors who welcomed the relaxed networking opportunity.

SLIDE AWARD WINNERS 2018
MODEL: S/LAB SHIFT HYBRID BINDING
The result of nearly a decade of in-depth r&d, the S/ Lab Shift MNC binding is the truly compromise-free solution to skiers looking to push the boundaries of the mountain and their skiing and is the only hybrid binding compatible with all norm boots on the market.
MODEL: MICRO PUFF HOODY
The Micro Puff delivers ultra lightweight, water-resistant, down-like warmth with PlumaFill synthetic insulation – a revolutionary featherlight down alternative. It offers the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any jacket we have ever created and the unprecedented combination of warmth, minimal weight and compressability (even when wet) offers the versatility of synthetic without compromising the benefits and feel of down.
