Airblaster Previews 21/22 Winter Collection

January 6, 2021

High Performance Meets Progressive Style For Outerwear, Mid-layers Ninja Suits and Accessories

Portland, OR – Rider-owned and operated snowboarding apparel brand, Airblaster, announces the launch of its Winter 20/21 Collection which includes the new limited premium performance Sasquatch line, as well as Landform, an expanded collection of midlayers and versatile lifestyle pieces, and a continuation of Erik Leon’s mold-breaking signature line, offering Pro Model apparel at an entry price point with sustainability and accessibility at the forefront.

New for 2021, Airblaster goes above and beyond Beast Performance, with the Sasquatch line —  a hand-numbered and limited capsule collection that offers supreme breathability and unbeatable waterproof performance for snowboarders who want technical apparel with authentic snowboard function and style. The Sasquatch Line includes the one-piece Sasquatch Suit ($649.95), the 3 Layer Sasquatch Shell ($499.95), Sasquatch Bibs ($419.95), Sasquatch Trenchover (pullover) Jacket ($399.95) and The Sasquatch Elastic Boss Pant ($299.95). Each item is offered in two colorways and limited to 100 pieces per colorway backed by the Swiss precision of SchoellerⓇ’s proprietary performance technology.

Airblaster’s Landform Series offers style-forward no-BS layering solutions from 5K fabric suitable for the outerwear line to cozy fleece pants and tops, wild style hoodies, sweaters and tees. The Sherpa Half Zip Fleece offers show-stopping prints in Turquoise Terry (pterodactyl) and rust daisy.  The Breakwinder Packable Pullover packs into a kangaroo pocket and offers 5K protection from the rain or spring slush.

Who else offers a Pro Model Jacket for $150 and Pant for $129? No one. But Erik Leon’s desire to help make snowboarding more accessible is challenging the status quo. With more than 50% recycled content the Leon Revert Jacket and Pant make the case that snowboarding and sustainability are for everyone.

A few other notable new products for 21/22 include the new Youth Trenchover Jacket, Youth Boss Pant, and Youth Commodity beanie, as well as the upcoming collaboration with Salmon Arms, The Terry Mitts for grown up human hands in small/medium or medium/large.

And, of course, the famous (or infamous) one-piece baselayer that started it all– the Ninja SuitⓇ, will continue to be available to adventurers of all persuasions, with new prints both mild and wild, in merino tencel blend, classic poly, or performance pro. Sizes start for the littlest ninjas in the family and fit up to adult XXL.

Schoeller’s C_Change laminate uses proprietary Nanosphere technology to bead up and repel water even in the damp climate of the Pacific Northwest where riders battle atmospheric rivers and condition forecasts that call for 33 degrees and snowing. The laminate expands when the membrane heats up, maximizing breathability and comfort whether a rider is on the ascent or slashing pow and heading down.

Sasquatch Series

Style: Sasquatch 3L Jacket

MSRP: US 499.95 CAN 649.95

Style Description: The pores of Schoeller’s thermodynamic C_Change laminate expand when the membrane heats up, maximizing breathability.  Add the function of two extra-large chest ventilation pockets (great for skins) and you have what may be the most breathable waterproof shell on the market.  Schoeller’s proprietary Nanosphere technology beads up water and repels stains, keeping you dry and your jacket looking crisp for years to come.  Extremely limited and hand numbered.
