What’s new at Aussieskier?


We see our fair share of new and exciting gear. It’s one of the perks of our job, being able to play with the latest and greatest, innovative, and downright cool gear. Because of this, we see it as one of our responsibilities to make sure that you have access to the best and most innovative gear that’s out in the wild.

There are a few brands which we thought would be great to partner up with. Some you may have heard of and seem obvious, whilst others are smaller companies making fantastic products.

ATK Bindings are an Italian manufacturer of lightweight, low tech bindings. They have redefined what we thought was possible in the world of touring bindings, creating lightweight and strong pin-style bindings. One look at these beauties and you’ll see a high level of precision and innovation which only the best manufacturing could create. Their Haute Route 2.0 binding weighs a measly 165 grams, whilst the burliest offering, the Freeraider 14.0 comes in at 395 grams.

As the backcountry market continues to expand, we continue to expand the range available to our customers. It made sense to bring in one of the biggest names in the outdoor industry, Black Diamond, to add their line of technical backcountry hardware to our range. We’ll be carrying their touring packs, avalungs, beacons, shovels, probes, and telescopic touring ski poles.

Coal Headwear has been around for 16 years finding their way onto peoples heads. Fashionable, functional, comfy and warm, Coal uses the best materials and don’t skimp out on manufacturing costs so you can be sure your accessories will last the test of time.

Not exactly new to Aussieskier, we quietly had the new Fritschi Tecton binding available last Winter. However, we love the binding so much we thought it appropriate to give it a proper introduction. Innovative, lightweight performance is the name of the game with Fritschi. Their tech bindings are the only tech bindings currently on the market which offer an added degree of safety and ski ability through lateral elasticity at the toe. Not sure what that means? Get in touch with us and ask why it may be an influencing factor in your next touring binding choice.

Head Skis are well known for creating strong piste skis for advanced skiers. Our customers have been asking for us to carry the Supershape series, well, we’ve listened and you’ll find them in our shop this year. The extremely popular Kore 93, described as the success story of innovation and design, is an extremely lightweight and high-performance ski will also be available but won’t last long!

Komperdell make ski poles. And given they’ve been doing it since 1922, they’re really good at it too. Their poles have won countless Winter Olympics and World Cup medals, climbed the highest peaks in the world, and are continually updated with new technologies to make them lighter, stronger and more comfortable for use. We’ll have a range of telescopic and regular ski poles to have you speeding down, or up, the hill in style.

Planks are a rider-owned clothing company drawing inspiration from decades of having fun in the mountains. Passionate skiers, their outerwear represents technical fabrics in stylish cuts and colourways. With an eco-friendly approach and sustainability at the front of their designs, we think Planks offer fashionable and technical outerwear that won’t break the bank. Their motto ‘drop cliffs not bombs’ is pretty awesome too.

Creators of the first plastic ski boots, Lange Ski Boots have been innovators in the ski industry for over 50 years. The new Dual Core construction utilized in their ski boots allows for fantastic performance across all types of terrain. We’ll be carrying a variety of styles and widths, including the RX series and the XT touring series.

Look Bindings feature a long and rich history dating back to the 1950s, and are credited to developing some the first modern alpine bindings. The legendary Pivot Binding is a burly binding that absorbs more shock and prevents unwanted pre-release better than any other binding on the market.

Mammut stands for years of experience in harsh mountain environments, where reliable gear that performs as expected is a necessity. For this Winter we’ll be carrying a range of their avalanche safety equipment. With over 45 years of experience developing avalanche transceivers, the Barryvox and Barryvox S represent the pinnacle of technology currently available.

Rossignol is one of the biggest brands in the ski industry and has been manufacturing great products for decades. Whether it’s on the race circuit or in big mountain competitions, their skis and ski boots are a regular sighting. We’ll be adding limited numbers of the sought after Soul 7 HD and Sky 7 HD series to our ski range. We’ve also had many requests to carry the Experience lineup of skis for Men and Women too, so you’ll see those on our ski wall and website when Winter rolls around.

Vigilante crosses the threshold of form and function to create stylish pieces appropriate for use on and off the ski hill. Whether your lounging around the lodge or in need of some serious warmth on the coldest of days, Vigilante’s range of products will have your back. We’re particularly excited to introduce 3/4 length thermal compression pants that are perfect for warmth and muscle recovery.
