Verbier, Switzerland (January 27, 2015) —
Faction Skis’ new design and distribution division, Full Stack Supply Co, will re-launch Roxy Skis in Denver at SIA from Jan 29th to Feb 1st. The tight but comprehensive new Roxy range delivers both performance and visual impact for freestyle as seen on the X-Games podium with Dara Howell, backcountry Alpine freeride as ridden by Lena Stoffel, for women simply enjoying the pistes and of course those junior girls learning to shred.
Faction’s award-winning product development expertise and Roxy’s strength in women’s sports has generated a strong positive response from retailers. The Full Stack sales force has also seen major expansion adding experienced sales leadership in nineteen key markets in North America and Europe.
“We’ve been investing in the core capabilities to create and distribute quality products for years, and it’s been great to see the fruits of those efforts in Faction’s ski and apparel market visibility and sales growth,” co-founder Alex Hoye explained. “Now teaming up with Quiksilver to deliver the new Roxy line offers a unique opportunity to put our artisan touch on an established and much-loved brand. Under the leadership of the seasoned ski industry vet and former extreme champ Rex Wehrman in North America we’re feeling a real surge this season.”
