Ever since they spawned from the all-conquering sports company Nike, Nike 6.0 have been making great progress in the snowboarding world. Their pro team is full of top riders such as Halldor Helgason, Mikkel Bang and Peetu Piiroinen to name but a few, and this motley crew of shredders can only be seen as a testament to the company’s demands for high quality. With some cool new products lined up, the 2011/2012 season is looking like a good one for the guys at Nike 6.0.
The Nike 6.0 women’s Bellevue jacket is a key style in the 2011/2012 product range. It comes with a super stylish Nordic printed gilet on top and weighs in at 10k for both waterproofness and breathability keeping you warm and dry too. It also has a snow skirt to keep you comfortable when shredding the pow and comes in a fluro pink too for the more flamboyant ladies.
The 2011/2012 men’s Proost jacket is very similar to the popular 2010/2011 model but has a different work-wear style colour scheme. With a warm goose-down filled insulated inner this jacket is perfect for those cold winter days and the 10k and waterproofness and breathability make sure that when you are warm, you stay warm.
Nike 6.0 also have a new boot out for the coming season. The Vapen, which means ‘weapon’, is a classic Nike styled boot with aesthetics that back to the Jordan Air. Thanks to the relaxed structure it has a nice flex and is great for jibbing or for someone just after a comfortable boot. It also rocks NASA space technology (as all good boots should) which apparently helps moderate the temperature of the boot, making sure your feet are warm and that the cold air stays out.
With all these great products on show the preview clip above is definitely worth a look.
