4FRNT is doing a great thing with their skis and existance and Salomon has done many many great things for the sport of skiing. If all of this talk is true about CR's sponsorship, I agree it is a bit unfortunate and I'm sure we'll all learn the details soon enough, but for such an ignorant and generalized statement to be made on your behalf, "fuck corporations", it shows you don't know that much. I hope you grow your own food, make your own skis, sew your own clothing and hike for your turns on a mountain near your home that you walk to, otherwise you are a hypocrite.
What I want to know is why you think rider owned companies are actualy better to their riders then big companies. Also why should they keep a rider who does nothing for them. sure he was hurt, but I have not ever really seen him promote saloman very much. so why should they continue to pour money at him. or are you all a bunch of commies. Also you guys don't know who droped who weather it was Salomon or CR who did the droping
And if you would like information on which boots you should buy ask these people:
its not like they straight up dropped him after he got injured. they stuck with him through most of the recovery, then once he got his stuff back together they decided it wasnt worth it to keep him if he could hardly do anything for the company. they did not abandon him. wait for more explanantions. people here always jump to fucking conclusions
