DUXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS – January 30, 2018
Bern Unlimited (www.bernunlimited.com), the innovator in four-season action sport head protection, sends huge congratulations to Bern Team Athlete & Ambassador Henrik Harlaut for his pair of gold medal performances last weekend at X Games Aspen 2018.
The Swedish superstar began his weekend with a victory in X Games Ski Big Air, notching his fifth career gold medal in the category. Not content with just one trip to the podium, Harlaut followed up with a groundbreaking gold medal in X Games Ski Slopestyle – his first gold medal in the category.
“Henrik is an inspiration and a true pro. We couldn’t be more stoked to see him crush it last weekend in Aspen,” said Tim Leedom, CEO of Bern.
Known as an innovative jumper with an irrepressible personality, Harlaut has the most X Games Ski Big Air gold in history and the most X Games gold of any male skier in a single discipline.
Harlaut has worked with Bern since 2013, and his lid of choice is the Macon– an iconic performance helmet with roots as a world class skate lid and the core clean lines of all-season versatility. The Bern Macon has a thin ABS shell lined with EPS Foam to create remarkable lightweight protection, and BOA technology for a dialed fit.
Specializing in head protection for non-motorized action sports, Bern is recognized worldwide for their signature shape, style, fit and feel. Since their launch in 2004, Bern has been a leading force in the technical evolution of protective gear for skiers, snowboarders, bikers, skaters and wakeboarders.
Bern innovations include the use of Carbon Fiber, In-mold EPS, ZipMold+, Thinshell EPS, Hard Hat and H20 technologies. Bern is also the first head protection brand to engineer and develop unique designs for men and women.
Bern’s legendary “Signature Shape” is a distinctive look carried by every model in their head protection line, regardless of each specific model’s vent and visor placement. The brand’s “Signature Fit & Feel” is equally unique, delivering a cradling of the head that provides the optimum balance between protection, profile, and fit.
