Nashua, NH (September 10, 2014) - SLYTECH PROTECTION is bred from innovation and rooted in progression. As riders continuously push the contemporary boundaries of possibility, the inherent risks grow greater with each new step toward the future of riding. It’s important to us to supplement the progression of skiing through rider safety, and keeping the revolutionary athletes on snow day after day. We are really excited to announce the addition of our new team member, Tom Wallisch, and we look forward to the future of product and ski progression together.

“I’m excited to have access to the highest quality protective gear,” said Wallisch. “Whether I’m shredding some gnarly lines in the backcountry or sliding a crazy handrail having solid protection to take a hit and keep on shredding is pretty great. What separates SLYTECH from other brands is simply the gear itself. The company is all about making no compromises when it comes to athlete comfort and safety.”

Slytech Protection Co-founder, Ted Ligety upon adding Wallisch to Slytech Protection on top of Shred Optics shared, “Watching Tom ski is like watching a video game. He goes huge with amazing style. I’m psyched to welcome Tom into the Slytech family to help protect him on the rare occurrences that he doesn’t stick it to his feet and to help him push the limits of skiing.”
