ISPO is an outdoor industry trade show (and is the biggest single trade event for the outdoor sports industry) held in Europe in Munich each January.
Each year they award a selected number of products with their ISPO Awards. And Idris Skis has won in 2013 at ISPO for their ski called the Lynx.
I would love to think my photos and a little video I put together (under much duress from my underpowered MacBook) had something to do with this — they were used on the ISPO application process — but of course it is the skis who won the award due to the hard work and innovative ideas from Tom at Idris Skis.
I just love seeing Idris listed there in the off-piste category along side of industry giants – Vökl, Black Diamond and Rossignol ! And here are the details (along with a couple of my photos of course !!)
Their latest ski – the Lynx – has won for Eco Awareness and Off Piste Innovation – it is made with a wood and flax core, and bio-resin – the most eco-friendly ski available on the market today.
I skied on it just last week-end and was well impressed with the Lynx’s balance and nimble turning off-piste and even ability to carve while on piste, and plan to get a pair myself for next season !
More of my shots for Idris can be found on the Manufacturing Process page of their website.
