Canada Snowboard – Calgary, AB (February 12, 2019) – Canada Snowboard and Freestyle Canada are proud to announce AEXOS™as the Presenting Partner of the Halfpipe Rodeo FIS Freeski & Snowboard World Cup. The event will take place at Winsport Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, AB, from February 13-16th, 2019.

AEXOS™has developed HALO™, protective compression equipment designed to reduce whiplash, a well documented component of concussion. The core technology behind HALO™is a highly engineered collar that stiffens during a whiplash event, improving neck stability while reducing risk of injury. The collar is built into a compression shirt that provides postural support and works with the natural movements of an athlete, without affecting range of motion or mobility.

“We are thrilled to partner with Canada Snowboard and Freestyle Canada and support the Halfpipe Rodeo FIS Freeski & Snowboard World Cup,” said Charles Corrigan, CEO of AEXOS. “This partnership reinforces our commitment to making high intensity sports safer so that athletes of all ages can feel protected while pushing their limits. Every athlete deserves increased protection from whiplash injury.”

Canada Snowboard athletes will have access to HALO™through the Canada Snowboard Shred Hookups program. Two-time Halfpipe Snowboard Olympian Derek Livingston is already a strong believer in HALO™, and will be wearing it at the World Cup event in Calgary.

“HALO is an amazing piece of equipment. Not only does it help reduce whiplash, but it gives increased support and awareness of your upper body and neck,” said Derek Livingston, Canada Snowboard Team Member. “The best part is that you barely notice it’s there!”

                                                                                                                                               
The Halfpipe Rodeo FIS Freeski & Snowboard World Cup presented by AEXOS™ will take place at Winsport Canada Olympic Park in Calgary from February 13-16th, 2019. World Cup event attendees and competing athletes can visit the heated AEXOS™ Lounge, located at the Day Lodge back deck at Winsport Canada Olympic Park, during the three-day event and learn more about the benefits of this new, innovative product.
