Snowboarder Anne-Flore Marxer and freeskier Caja Schöpf are stoked to present their signature TSG Pro Design snowboard and ski helmets. As of winter 2012, the Lotus snowboard and ski helmet will be available with the designs of Marxer and Schöpf, respectively.
“I wanted to do something simple but nice and friendly,” says Marxer. ” I love the effect of the semi-transparent look and the effect it has on the bright blue/green.”

Zurich, Switzerland, January 26th, 2012 — Anne-Flore Marxer won the Extreme de Verbier and the total score of the Freeride World Tour 2011. This season, Anne-Flore will put particular focus on filming video segments where she will get the chance to throw in her increased freeride experience to take big mountain riding to the next level. Like last year, the Pro rider uses TSG protection equipment for safety on the hill. And soon enough, she will be riding with her own signature Pro Model Design helmet which she created during the summer months.
Anne-Flore particularly liked the semi-transparent look of TSG's clear helmet models, and combined it with vibrant turquoise. Unobtrusive logo positioning and a clean design make this pro model a real gem.
German freeskier Caja Schöpf is already nominated for the new Olympic discipline of slopestyle at the Olympic Games 2014 in Sotschi. But this is still a while to go, and meanwhile Caja will continue riding contests, shooting video segments and working as a coach at freeski camps.
Together with designer Eli Michiel of elmi Design, Caja created her first TSG Pro Design helmet. Caja's signature Lotus helmet comes with a matte pastel green colorway and a huge illustration from elmi on the side. There are more illustrative elements on the back of the helmet as well as on the straps and within the TSG front logo.
An extremely durable hard-shell helmet, the Lotus only weights 479 grams. Featuring a low fit and cozy, soft neck section it protects the upper cervical vertebras as well as the temples. The helmet's anatomical shape has been precisely adapted to the natural curves of the head and hugs it like a second safety skin, including a slim low profile and perfect fit.
