Idris Skis Wins Award at ISPO

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.
