Dynafit Ski Mountaineering Gear- Well before I became the New Zealand importer/distributor of Dynafit I was 100% pumped on the Dynafit binding/boot system and their light weight touring skis. Add the full range of clothes, packs, poles, skins and accessories and its no wonder why Dynafit is the number 1 brand in ski touring/ski mountaineering and the Dynafit line of bindings is the choice of racers, recreational and extreme ski tourers in the world. http://www.dynafit.co.nz/ iclimb.co.nz is an online shop run by Glenn (the master mind behind mountainz.co.nz). This is where I go for hardware like my Simond Ocelot Hyperlight axe , 820MXC axe and Caiman alloy crampons. As well these light weight ice axes and crampons from Simond, Glenn stocks a range of axes, crampons, 'biners and accessories from Simond and a range of Mont Bell products, including shell wear, tents and sleeping bags. Great products at amazing wholesale prices! http://www.iclimb.co.nz/ Julbo Eye Wear is a French company started by an optometrist over 100yrs ago that has a great range of sun glasses and goggles. Its hard to pick a favorite of the range, but it would have to be the Race sunnies. For a full review of the Race check out the 2008/09 summer issue of The Climber magazine. For stockists contact Snoworld - 03 366 1122 Suunto watches are the standard by what all others are measured. Trail running or ski touring my Suunto is with me, logging my vertical, telling me my heart rate and I can even see what time it is! brandex.co.nz
I am pretty excited to announce a new sponsor- Fuel Me, NZ's Endurance Sport Specialists.
Andrew and the team at Fuel Me have over 8 years in the sport's nutrition industry and carry only the highest quality sports nutrition and training gear. Their top selling brands include Skins, 2XU, Cliff,Leppin and Cytomax, as well as my personal favorite, Gu.
"If it's not going to work 100% for you, we're not going to sell it to you" attitude, teamed up with a 30 day correct fit Guarantee and the best prices around, you really can't go wrong with Fuel Me.
I have ran two wins in the Crater Rim and Flagpole races with the 2XU Race Socks on, been fueled by Gu's on my bigger Molesworth training runs, as well as the sub 13hr Symphony on Skis this past winter and recovered amazingly well post race with the help of my Skin compression tights and Cytomax Whey Protein mix.
