Reveals, New Launches and Gear


The Kicker Tool by DMOS Collective

For backcountry skiers and snowboarders looking to build their own jumps, here’s what DMOS Collective calls the perfect tool. The Kicker Tool is a robust shovel/rake hybrid that’s built with “2.5mm aircraft-quality aluminum.” Designed to both move and sculpt snow, it has a 56.5-inch shaft that’ll hopefully prevent you from destroying your back while shoveling. The whole tool is easily disassembled (it has a telescoping shaft) and can fit in a backpack. Still not sold? Professional Snowboarder Travis Rice brings it with him when he seeks some winter inspiration.
