Adidas ID2 Demo night with Dom Harington

Posted on Monday 10th January, 2011 Times Viewed: 3835
It was the first Park and Ride freestyle session at Hemel Snow Centre last night, and as a double whammy for the start of the new year, it was the Adidas ID2 goggle demo night. Not only was there a massive park set-up, but the Adidas crew were there in force to give us the lowdown on their latest ID2 goggles.

Alongside an Adidas testing area was a jam competition on the big kicker with prizes handed out like candy for best tricks, best slam, and to any riders and skiers who threw down something slick.

On top of the sick riding, massive beats and awesome comp, British halfpipe rider Dom Harington was in the mix to judge the comp, give out the prizes, and mingle on the slopes for the night. Dom's been riding for Adidas eyewear for about 7 years, so we caught up with him to find out more about his ID2s and what he's up to this season.

Kaz - Dom, give us a run-down on what's been going down at Hemel.
Dom - We had a demo night for the new ID2 goggle. It was so people can see the goggle in the flesh, try the fit and check out the lenses. We also thought it would be fun to have a little jam session comp and give out some prizes. The comp wasn't supposed to be very serious but we had a wicked half hour jam session and it was cool to see so many good skiers and riders hitting the jumps.

Kaz – Have you enjoyed yourself?
Dom - Yeah I had fun! I never tried MCing a comp before but then my microphone broke so kind of got me out of it a bit! But I enjoyed watching everyone push themselves on the jump. I was looking to give prizes out to the skiers or snowboarders who stood out from the crowd, either because of their style or the variety of tricks they were pulling.

Kaz – You're rocking the ID2s. Why do you like them?
Dom – Mainly because they are some of the most technically advanced lenses you can get and I ride a lot of different conditions so its good to have the best lenses! I also like the feel and the fit of the goggle.

Kaz - How's the season gone for you so far?
Dom - Awesome, I was in Breckenridge before Christmas doing a couple of pipe contests but also got loads of powder days. Then I got some snow in Yorkshire over christmas, tried hitting a street rail in leeds yesterday - didn't go very well, but was cool to be snowboarding in my home town.

Kaz - What have you got in store for the rest of the season?
Dom - I'm about to go on a filming trip to the mountains in Morocco which should be interesting! Apparently there is some snow high up in the Atlas mountains. After that I will be heading back to Breckenridge for the rest of the season.

Kaz - Any tricks you want to conquer?
Dom - Mmm yeah in the pipe I've been starting to get back to back 10s so really want to get them better and more consistent. I also want to try a double cork 10 off a jump but just waiting for the right jump and mood cos I'm pretty scared of the idea of them!
