In the process, they improved upon the performance of every other closure system on the market—from laces to buckles, and ratchets to hook and loop systems.The result? Get a perfect fit with the simple turn of a knob, free of the stretch, weight, and hassles of old-fashioned closures.

What distinguishes the Ride Shakedown and contributes to its success is first and foremost its competition format, a laid-back and festive environment where the constraints on the athletes are minimal.
At the center of the action, the public benefits from an accessible and entertainment-packed show. At the Ride Shakedown, the athletes participate in a slopestyle competition, which involves mastering two distinct disciplines: the Big Air and a rail with different features which is only unveiled on the first day of the competition, a long-awaited day for the athletes and spectators.
