What does your L1 set up look like this year (what jacket and pants and colorway)?

Axial Ultraviolet top to bottom.

100% YES! It creates a more relaxed fit and you do not step on your pants anymore.

I like to express my current self through my style. Keep on creating edits and just have fun.

Austen Sweetin, Torstein Horgmo and of course Arthur Longo! And also my friends - there are no better days than the ones spent with your homies.

Whats your favorite thing about L1 Premium Goods?

Involving the riders in the product development and being a company which truly is 100% behind the snowboard community. I am more than happy being a part of the L1 family.
