Legendary snowboarder Wolle Nyvelt has had a well-respected voice in the development of our products
As a Salomon Snowboard team athlete for the last two decades, legendary snowboard talent Wolle Nyvelt has long had a well-respected voice in the development of the brand’s products. He’s worked closely with the brand’s engineers to help create some of Salomon’s most well received boards, and it’s no secret that rider-driven engineering is crucial for their success. Now, as Salomon celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the highly-acclaimed Sick Stick with the launch of the Hillside Project, the partnership with Wolle has come full-circle.
Over the last 20+ years Wolle has evolved to become a highly regarded shaper of boards, using learnings and resources from his years with Salomon to create his own AESMO line of binding-less snowboards. So, to create the new Hillside Project boards for the 2017 season, Salomon turned to Wolle for his acquired knowledge of shapes, construction and skill. In fact, new Salomon prototypes are currently being produced out of Wolle’s small factory in Austria and are held up to the highest standard of quality and creativity.
