The Arctic Kraken is the first-ever helmet with a flexible interior. An inner shell features the so-called FlexTech innovation, which symbolizes an entirely new approach in the field of hard shell helmet construction; this design was strong enough to convince the jury of the Ispo Boardsports Award, making TSG the proud winner in the accessories category.
We are super happy we could convince the jury with our product. We have put a lot of thought, time and effort in the development of the Arctic Kraken since comfort and above all, excellent fit and hold, are essential features to ensure a regular use of the helmet. Practically, the wearer can’t make any mistakes with the Arctic Kraken, he or she does not even have to make adjustments. The helmet automatically adjusts to the wearer’s head. Just put it on and enjoy its outstanding comfort. We consider this prize an honorable reward for our ongoing investments in helmet design and protection issues, and we are more than inspired to surprise our customers and the industry with even more TSG innovations in the future.

TSG rider Iouri Podladtchikov got 2nd at the O’Neill Evolution Halfpipe finals in a spectacular day of snowboarding action.
It was a close fought final in the 6Star TTR Men’s competition with the top three on the podium – an all Swiss affair of Christian Haller, Iouri Podladtchikov and Jan Scherrer – exchanging the lead after each heat.
It was Christian however who took the final victory and the $15,000 prize money after his third heat run with a score of 87.45 for a run of a Backside 540 Melon, Frontside 1080 Tail, Cab 1080 Nose and Frontside 900 Mute.
Last year’s winner Iouri Podladtchikov had been leading after his second run of a Cab 720, Frontside Crippler, Backside Double McTwist 1260 and a Frontside 1080 Tail.
“I was thinking that I could have made it two wins in two years after landing my trick. But it feels great to have Christian in front of me. Of course it hurts a bit. But it’s Christian. If it was someone else I would probably be more pissed right now.”
