I think you mean 2010 gear.
Once you can do a double flip and afterbang I think ski companies give you a card that allows you to buy their gear 2 seasons before it comes out. And if you can do 4 million switchups on a rail and then pretzel 630 out of it you get a 5% discount. So for most of NS the 2010 gear has been out for a while now.
