In what could justifiably be viewed as a surprise move, household name Bobby Brown has made the move to new ski manufacturer Crosson Skis. The new brand, launched by the Washington based tuning outfit of the same name, aims to "create the most technically advanced skis ever made".

"Departing from the status quo, Crosson stands behind only the highest quality products and strives to bring innovation to the ski industry. By implementing cutting edge machinery and aerospace grade materials, Crosson has enabled world class skiers to push their limits even further. Four years of research and development with meticulous attention to detail has led us to a ski that is truly uncompromised. We push the boundaries of what is possible and will continue to challenge what it means to be the best." - Jordan Spriggs, Crosson Skis

In case you happen to have been living under several large rocks, Bobby dominated the competition scene for several years, winning 8 X Games medals in Slopestyle and Big Air, and has more recently been raising the bar for big all-mountain jump lines. At Crosson, he joins one of our favorite skiers, Banks Gilberti, with the aim of producing what promises to be an epic season of content. Backed up by his brother Petey's unbelievable follow cam skills, we look forward to seeing what they come up with.

Crosson currently offer three ski models. The Rouge (Park), Imperium (All-mountain), and Marauder (Pow).
