Element Travels to Spitsbergen, Norway, to Skate the World’s Northernmost Mini-Ramp
Amidst the waters of the Arctic Ocean on the island of Spitsbergen lies the northernmost miniramp in the world. This is where Element ventured for its Wolfeboro Authentech campaign with team rider Karsten Kleppan. Encountering stunning scenery, freezing temperatures, wandering polar bears and never ending days, Kleppan sought out perhaps the most northern spots ever skated, captured beautifully by filmmaker Yves Marchon and photographer Brian Gaberman.
The campaign introduces us to Authentech – Element’s authentic technology designed to protect its wearer from the forces of nature. With Wolfeboro’s heritage in mind its qualities include a semi-permeable membrane to ensure maximum fabric breathability, a coating applied to the face of the fabric to maintain wind proofing and water repellency, a special lamination process to secure waterproofing so its wearer stays dry and an internal insulation lining system for assured warmth.
