After resigning with Scott Sports earlier this year (see article here) Tom Wallisch seems to be head over heels for Scott equipment right now. More head than heels as he’s signed for Scott Helmets.Jan Engberg, SCOTT EU team manager, expressed his enthusiasm with the signing, “Having Tom on board is huge for SCOTT. Working with athletes who are driving forces in their sports to help develop products is how SCOTT founded our company and has always been a part of who we are. We see Tom as a big part of what?s next for SCOTT Sports.”For the 2011/2012 season Tom will be wearing Scott Helmets. Here’s what he had to say, “The new SCOTT helmets are amazing. They?re incredibly light and offer some of the sickest looking designs I?ve ever seen. I trust SCOTT products and couldn?t be happier wearing SCOTT helmets.”MPORA Action Sports >>Related posts:Tom Wallisch resigns with Scott Sports After two film segments last year and a gold...TJ Schiller signs for Nordica After spending a good couple of years with CoreUpt,...Bene Mayr signs for Nordica Bene has been a big hitter in the ski...
Tom Wallisch has come a long way since winning Superunknown IV back in 2007. The “King of Afterbang” has just kept on innovating in the 12 years since that game-changing video. He sits down, for an extended interview, to talk about everything from how he got started to how skiing has changed throughout his career, with so much in between. The 31-year-old is now a veteran of Newschool skiing and he talks a lot of sense about some of the biggest issues in our sport.
Tom Wallisch is first return guest to The Powell Movement and there’s a reason for that…..He’s Tom Wallisch…..He sits on the board of directors for the US Ski and Snowboard Team, he’s all about giving back to the sport, he’s a living legend, and even as he’s gotten older, he’s kept his finger on the pulse of all ski media, while continuing to create his own. Wallisch always makes for an interesting conversation.
