at SIA I was talking to one of the Atomic reps and he was saying how a lot of the guys like Jossi Wells are super tough on their skis and that sometimes it only takes a few weeks for them to break them. I have no idea if that is true....but i wouldn't surprise me.
well.............first of all, stickering your gear only takes a few minutes.....its not like huge project that takes a day or something. Secondly and more importantly, stickers serve the purpose of advertising! A lot of pros will but stickers on their skis to show off their sponsors, its just a way of supporting your sponsors and getting the word out about their sick products!
You specifically mentioned seeing Skulcandy and Jiberish stickers on pros' topsheets. I wonder why? perhaps its because Jiberish is a clothing company that doesnt make any outerwear, so a lot of the time it is worn under a skiers outerwear and can't be seen easily. Skullcandy is the same deal....its not a super noticeable item.
i think they get like 2 pairs for free then after one of them breaks they get another one
so basically when ever they break they get a new one
i ski pow and big mt all year and go through about 3 pairs a year. not sure about park skiers.
the thing is i dont really like giving up a used pair for new ones because every pair skiis different and takes a little getting used to, so i get my use out of them but i dont aviod sharks like i used too
may i ask, why the fuck does it matter?
go out there, and have the drive to figure out on your own.....from your own expirience
I heard the same thing in one of his video blogs from last year I think.
