Paris, France – April 2018 – What greater reward for a brand than the success of an ambassador? An ambassador of immense talent who has been with us for over 12 years – his victories could not be more special. We at Bollé are thrilled to announce that Pierre Vaultier has won its sixth Snowboard Cross Globe, thus ending on a high note a season studded with breathtaking performances and victories, including a Gold Medal in Korea. With two consecutive Olympic gold medals, a World Championship title, and now a sixth World Cup title under his belt, Pierre Vaultier has the highest ranking ever achieved in snowboard cross history, making him a true legend in his discipline. We are more than proud to count him as a genuine member of our brand family.
Pierre Vaultier achieved a fantastic season, making it six time to the World Cup podium. Holding his well-deserved Globe and Gold medal, he says: “I really had to fight hard to win this sixth globe. The challenge was big, and it makes the victory even more pleasant”. The fearless snowboarder has won an impressive number of competitions so far, winning all the trophies for the past two seasons, with two back-to-back World Cup globes, the World Championships title and the Winter Olympics title. On his collaboration with our brand, the Serre-Chevalier champion says: “Bollé is my oldest partner. When we started our collaboration in 2006, I was no one in my sport and Bollé believed in me”.
During the competition in Korea, the athlete wore NEVADA goggles and the INSTINCT helmet, two of our latest innovations.
Launched this winter, the INSTINCT helmet offers greater protection and increased performance thanks to a dual shell and Bollé's AVID Progressive EPS technology, which gives a lighter helmet (390 g) with superior performance for the full range of impacts. It also features our award-winning B0A® System for 360° adjustment.
Blending high performance with sleek design, Pierre Vaultier’s favorite goggle NEVADA is the perfect balance of technology and style. This cylindrical frameless style, which goes on sale next winter in a choice of 13 trendy shades, gives its wearer a stylish look and an amazingly wide field of view. In addition, our Flow Tech® venting system and anti-fog coating eliminate fog allowing you to enjoy the view even during the most intense action.
