Nashua, N.H. (25 March 2015) – At SHRED OPTICS we are psyched to welcome Marco Feichtner to the family, who has been a long time rider of another Anomaly Action Sports brand, SLYTECH PROTECTION. For years, Marco has been putting out heavy parts with Pirates for years, and we are psyched to have him representing all Anomaly Action Sports brands, SHRED OPTICS and SLYTECH PROTECTION joining a team stacked with talent, which includes Victor de Le Rue, Romain de Marchi, JP Solberg, Benji Ritchie, Kent Callister, Stephan Mauer, Lucas Baume, and Nicholas Wolken.
Snowboard Business Development Manager, Alvaro Vogel said, “What can really be said about Marco that his riding doesn’t? He’s just a super talented snowboarder. Marco is probably one of the hardest workers in the snowboard scene. He has over ten full parts under his belt – no fillers, no lifestyle shots, only bangers! Marco is a true backcountry snowboarder and we are more than happy to welcome him to the team!”
On joining the SHRED OPTICS family, Marco shared, “I joined the family because I have been riding for SLYTECH for many years, and I know firsthand how focused everyone at the company is on progression and supporting riders. But the most important thing is the goggles; they are just amazing! The quality of both SHRED OPTICS and SLYTECH PROTECTION products is unreal. SLYTECH has already saved me many times. I have tested the SHRED goggles in every weather condition, and there is no situation where they aren’t perfect.”
CMO/CFO, Federico Merle shared, “Adding Marco to the SHRED OPTICS team is amazing as it affirms the direction of the brands and the impact we have on our athletes. Marco has been one of our favorite riders to watch throughout his years as a SLYTECH athlete, and now having him, as part of the SHRED OPTICS family as we continue our assault on the commonplace through our seamless integration of style and performance, will be great watching him drop heavy part after part.”
Co-founder and lead product engineer, Carlo Salmini, let on, “Our product progression and design is truly driven by our athletes’ input and their interaction with our design team. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Marco on SLYTECH for a few years already, so I am super excited to be able to also work with him on Shred’s product technology and style. It is going to be a fun ride, welcome on board Marco!”
