San Diego, CA – Footbalance, an innovator in custom footbed technology, is introducing the new Race Heat footbed for snowsports. The Race Heat footbed is compatible with the Therm-IC heating system, the leader in heated ski boot technology, keeping feet warm in cold environments. This footbed is ideal for skiers and snowboarders as well as any cold weather athlete. The Footbalance Race Heat will be launched to retailers at the Snowsports Industries of America Tradeshow in January, where Footbalance will be pre-booking orders for the Fall 2012 season.

“What’s better than a warm and comfortable ski boot? One that also offers proper alignment and improved performance to snowsports enthusiasts,” says Footbalance North America’s President and Managing Director Matt Kaplan. “Footbalance now offers customizable HEATED comfort for specialty ski shops, in an easy to mold retail environment.”
