The XT 130 Freetour ski boot: an award winning boot!

The XT 130 Freetour ski boot: an award winning boot!

UK wintersports trade show Slide 2016, which has been taking place at The International Centre in Telford, have announced the winners of the Slide Awards 2016.

The Slide Awards recognise the hottest products for the 2016/17 winter season and acknowledge innovation in snowsports across three categories: Hardware, Software and Accessories. The awards are voted for by SIGB retail members, press and industry opinion leaders.

Slide 2016, which is showcasing next winter’s snowsports products for the first time, is organised by the Snowsport Industries of Great Britain (SIGB) and plays a key role in the retailer’s buying process as well as giving the snowsports trade first views of products from more than 220 brands.

The Lange XT 130 Freetour ski boot was recognised as the stand out product in the Hardware category. The boot is lighter than an alpine boot, but despite having the same performance as a downhill boot, it has a range of ‘Freetour’ features including an ultra grip sole and pin binding inserts.

Scott Dobson from Lange said: “From Lange’s point of view this is a great accolade. We are happy that the judges have acknowledged the effort we have put in to develop ski boots over the last seven years. Lange is a premium boot brand and we feel that in the XT 130 Freetour we have a premium product that occupies the space between freeride and touring, a growing area of the market”.

First season win for Rebensburg in GS, Brignone 3rd

First season win for Rebensburg in GS, Brignone 3rd

Two Lange racers were on the podium in Flachau. Viktoria Rebensburg has realized two strong runs and signs her 2nd podium this winter while Federica Brignone finished again in the Top 3 after two races without podiums.

Viktoria Rebensburg: “It's a pretty good feeling. I mean this is always for sure the best feeling, being up on the podium. Yeah, and I think today everything was putting well together. For sure, it was not so easy in the second run with the conditions, but yeah, in the end it worked out. For sure, my feeling wasn’t also the best and I was not sure if it was fast or not, but yeah, when I came down here I saw nine tenths, so everything was working kind of good, so I’m pretty happy and really satisfied and proud.”

Federica Brignone: “I’m pretty happy for today because it was a tough race. During the second run, the weather changed and I was a little bit stressed at the beginning. I said 'Yeah, I can see nothing.' I had to change my goggles and just try to push harder. I don’t really care about the weather when I’m racing. I just try to push and ski fast, but I felt awful. I felt like I was making mistakes all the way and yeah, I was just telling me ‘Push, push’ and ‘not turn’ or ‘go faster’ ‘cause I felt really really slow. Then I heard about - I don’t know if you were the speaker at the moment, or I don’t know - I heard like “Ah, mistakes,” and I said, “Yeah, I’m doing mistakes. I have to go” But, yeah, I just tried to push harder and when I saw the green light I was really like Wow!”

Loeseth, the best is yet to come

Loeseth, the best is yet to come

In Santa Caterina, Nina Loeseth has signed her first career victory during the 5th slalom of the season. At 26 years old, the Lange racer from Norway has realized a strong beginning this season with a 3rd place in Are’s slalom and the 2nd place in Courchevel’s Giant Slalom.

She finished in a combined time of 1:57.65 ahead of Sarka Strachova and Veronika Velez Zuzulova, both respectively 1.12 and 1.37 seconds off the pace. Frida Hansdotter keeps the reb bib of leader of the discipline.

This is the 4th career podium for Nina Loeseth : “It feels great. Probably the best feeling I’ve ever had on the hill. Yeah, it’s really something special especially when you’re on the podium there and you hear your national anthem. I was tearing up quite a bit. It’s very emotional and it’s a good day. I think I already knew that I was in a good place technically and mentally, so I just want to find out how hard I can push now. It’s my challenge that I am always in control, so it’s going to be some fun next races to figure out where’s my limit because I felt I push it quite good on the flats here today and so I was quite happy with the number when I came down and saw actually how much I won with, that it was a good second run, too, not like just a lucky run" (fisalpine.com)
