Next February, the multi-medalist French skier Kévin Rolland will take part in the Olympic half pipe in Beijing. IZIPIZI is proud to work with this athlete, who is among the best of his generation, as he prepares and presents Snow x Kévin Rolland, his Pro Model goggle, available from 6th December.
A few months before the 24th Winter Olympics, the French freestyle ski prodigy, bronze medalist at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and 9 times medalist at the mythical X-Games, leaves nothing to chance in his preparation, especially not his equipment. Kevin Rolland has been a member of the IZIPIZI pro-riders team since January 2021 and has worked closely with the brand’s creative teams to design a high-performance ski mask that is perfectly adapted to his practice.
The SNOW x Kévin Rolland pro model has the same technical characteristics as the mask developed by IZIPIZI in 2018. The thermoformed foam hugs the contours of the face and guarantees optimal comfort for long outings on the pistes. Anti-slip strips are integrated into the adjustable headband to ensure a perfect fit, even in the most extreme situations that Kevin has so often faced.
Lastly, the polyurethane structure guarantees excellent resistance in case of a fall, and the anti-fog double screen prevents condensation from forming. For the design, Kevin opted for black and white - sober and refined colours.
«In competition, I have to be confident in my equipment, even more when it comes to vision, because that’s what allows me to get my bearings in the air during my runs. Thanks to its sleek style, this SNOW goggle co-designed with IZIPIZI gives me the comfort and look I need to ride with confidence, while keeping the Smile,» says the freestyler.
«After working with our pro snowboarder Pauline Ado to the Tokyo Olympics this summer, we are very proud to be able to continue this adventure with Kevin Rolland at the Winter Olympics in his admirable freestyle skiing discipline. It is even more exciting to be able to do so with a Pro Model goggle co-created with Kevin - who is a very demanding athlete both in terms of technique and style. It
has been a real pleasure to collaborate with Kevin, who is first and foremost a great person with strong values that are in line with those of IZIPIZI and its Pro-Team”, says Quentin Couturier, co-founder of the brand.
The SNOW x Kevin Rolland mask can be worn over corrective eyewear and fits all helmets found on the market, making it perfect for all snowboarders, from beginners to the most experienced riders!
