The Crazy Canucks’ Collection
The stories behind their gear
In competitions that are often decided by hundredths of a second, every detail counts. In World Cup downhill, those details go beyond technical skills, physical conditioning and mental preparation. They include the line you skied through each section of the course and the aerodynamics of your tuck, helmet and downhill suit. Did you choose the right skis, wax and tuning that day? Is everything functioning perfectly? If it isn’t you’ll fail. Because you can only win in World Cup downhill when you and all your gear are totally up to the task. It’s that simple. Or should we say, complex.
