Welcome Back(e)!

October 19th, 2009

Although the Austrian sports equipment brand HEAD has never been anywhere else: HEAD is Back(e)! The traditional ski manufacturer from Vorarlberg has signed Freeskier Anders Backe to continue in its freestyle team for another three years. Freestyle specialist Anders Backe will use the skis, boots and bindings designed and developed by HEAD to realise his goal of becoming one of the top 3 riders in the world. The relationship has grown from strength to strength since the start. Both sides are equally content with their new venture: “They deliver top equipment and full support to their riders. The biggest advantage with HEAD skis is that they know exactly what they are doing and you get quality all the way“, says Anders, who has ridden at the X-Games, so he knows about the need for good equipment!

HEAD is equally pleased to continue with the 23-year-old, he has the potential to make it to the very top where he can sit alongside the other legendary members of the HEAD team. Anders is used to big jumps as a former ski jumper and this is his focus within freeskiing, Big Airs and Slopestyle. Born in Vikersund, Norway, he works as part-time coach for the freestyle runner-ups and truly is an idol to the younger generation; not only those in Scandinavia. With several film appearances to his name he has already showed his skills on rails and kickers to the world. With complete certainty that he is always Backe(d) by his equipment and by HEAD.
