    Dear DOWN Family,
    We're excited to share that DOWN is back and stronger than ever! With new manufacturing facilities, a
    fresh team, and the launch of our highly anticipated 24-25 collection, we're ready to redefine freeride
    and freestyle skiing excellence.

    About Us - DOWN Skis:
    At DOWN, skiing isn't just a sport; it's a way of life. Founded in 2009 in the USA during the indie ski
    movement's peak, DOWN has always been driven by a passion for skiing and a commitment to
    delivering unparalleled quality and value to our community. Now, with our new manufacturing hub
    nestled in the heart of Salzburg, Austria, we're poised to continue this legacy of excellence.

    Factory Direct:
    DOWN was pioneering the consumer-to-direct business model since inception, and we continue to
    lead in this area today. We're proud to offer factory-direct sales, cutting out middlemen to deliver
    premium-quality skis at competitive prices. This direct approach enables us to maintain control over
    every aspect of production, ensuring the highest standards of craftsmanship and performance.

    Our Mission and Core Values:
    At DOWN, our mission is simple: to create original, high-quality skis and deliver them directly from the
    factory to you. Our core values - original design, pure high-quality products, passion for skiing,
    diversity, and positive life - guide everything we do.

    Our Philosophy:
    DOWN is more than just a ski company; we're a community of freeride skiers dedicated to pushing the
    boundaries of what's possible in skiing. With a focus on innovation, quality, and value, we're committed
    to driving positive change in the industry.

    History of DOWN Skis:

    From our humble beginnings in 2005 to our renaissance in 2024, DOWN has always been driven by a
    passion for skiing and a commitment to excellence. Today, we're proud to continue this legacy with our
    latest collection, embodying the spirit of adventure and innovation that defines DOWN.

    The DOWN 24-25 Collection:
    Prepare to elevate your skiing experience with our latest collection, featuring:

    COUNTDOWN - Backcountry Freeride Skis: These skis combine a full carbon construction,
    offering lightweight yet ultra-stable performance, with our "duraproof" technology, featuring
    thicker edges, thicker bases, and Titanal binding inserts. New for 24-25: upgraded to
    premium 50K carbon from SGL Sigratex® and enhanced with even thicker edges and bases
    for unparalleled durability.

    THROWDOWN - Freestyle Skis: Built for durability and playfulness, featuring
    SYMMETRICAL FREESTYLE ROCKER with a short running length, camber underfoot, and
    symmetrical tip/tail rocker. New for 24-25: non-die-cut, silkscreen printed bases for added
    durability, full-length carbon stringer for increased pop and longevity, a unique feature at this
    price point.

    SHOWDOWN
    - All-Mountain Freeride Skis: SHOWDOWN skis offer an exceptional weight-
    to-performance ratio for all-mountain skiing, featuring a full-length metal construction with two
    sheets of Titanal layers and a light poplar core for a stable, lively ride. The longer radii (R20-
    R25) provide unmatched stability in harsh conditions, while the advanced multi-radius rocker
    ensures they remain easy and lively to ski. New for 24-25: completely new models with
    straighter radii counter the market trend, featuring a playful, poppy layup.

    LOWDOWN - Freetouring Skis: Deliver exceptional downhill performance in a touring-
    friendly package, thanks to a lightweight full-length Paulownia woodcore, SGL Sigratex® 50K
    carbon, and Titanal underfoot reinforcements. New for 24-25: these are completely new
    models, offering enhanced downhill skiing qualities despite the lightweight touring design.
    Special Offer:
    To celebrate our return, we're offering a special bundle of any DOWN skis model with FREE Tyrolia
    Attack² 14 bindings, valued at 235 euros, and free international shipping to your door. The special
    bundle offer is limited, so don't miss your chance to experience unparalleled performance and style
    with the DOWN 24-25 collection at an unmatched price.

    Fully Stocked and Ready to Ship:
    We are fully stocked and ready to ship, ensuring rapid order turnaround to get you on the slopes
    without delay. Plus, enjoy a no-questions-asked 14-day return guarantee.

    On a Final Note:
    At DOWN, we're not just building skis; we're building a culture. Join us as we continue to push the
    boundaries of skiing and redefine what it means to be a part of the DOWN family.

    Warm regards,
    Irip (aka Brian) & the entire DOWN Team

    Cool to see them back!

    The dialed up materials are sweet & the base superlogo looks dope!
    The colors are great too! (but I hope that diamond pattern goes extinct yesterday)

    My buddy purchased the company / assets and desired to re-boot the brand. In the past, Down was only avail in the NA due to great heroics on this board / hard work from true mags. Our aim is to make them more accessible and also receptive to R&D updates / technologies. I have the distribution background and some exposure to the pitfalls in the US market. I will likely be the hub / warehouse and will play a role in running camps / demo's for the 2 brand : DOWN and Original Plus.

    *Full disclosure, I'd love to see em build for HL as they have Sigi, 3 complete presses and a full Austrian factory.
