Spyder Partners with U.S Ski & Snowboard to Launch an Exclusive Store on Amazon.com
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Spyder, one of the world’s most recognizable ski brands, and U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the most decorated Winter Olympic organization, today announced the launch of an exclusive store on Amazon.com offering the Spyder and U.S. Ski Team’s co-branded gear to consumers.
Spyder x U.S. Ski Team apparel and accessories are designed and constructed with the help of U.S. Ski Team athletes to deliver top results as they train to compete against the best in the world. Spyder partners with Gore-Tex, the undisputed leader in fabric technology, to deliver waterproof, windproof and breathable technology across this collection. Versatility is also infused throughout the assortment with details such as jackets with removable helmet compatible hoods and goggle pockets, ski pants with removable suspenders and hand warmer pockets. Drawing its color inspiration from European runways, the collection has a distinct color palette of olive and army green paired with pops of yellow, that give audiences more choice and the opportunity to stand out on and off the mountain.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sales of co-branded Spyder x U.S. Ski Team products supports the U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s efforts to provide resources to athletes who are inspired to be the best in the world.
“For 30 years Spyder has proudly developed and supplied product to the U.S. Ski Team,” said Nick Adcock, CEO of Spyder. “Teaming up with Amazon has allowed us to highlight these amazing athletes to a much broader audience than ever before and raise funds to support their future success with the sale of these licensed products.”
“We are delighted to be working with Spyder and Amazon,” said Dan Barnett, U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Ski fans now have a unique opportunity to access the great looks that they see on their favorite athletes wherever they are, whenever they want!”
The Spyder x U.S. Ski Team store on Amazon.com at amazon.com/usskiteam offers a capsule collection of t-shirts, hoodies, and hats featuring the Spyder and U.S. Ski Team logos. In addition, the store offers the full Fall 2019 Spyder x U.S. Ski Team “Speed Freaks” collection for pre-order, including sweaters, jackets, snowsuits, speed suits, ski pants, and accessories for men and women.
