Quiksilver and Roxy: Helmet buckles for the most fun on the slopes

Skiers and snowboarders know the problem: When putting on and taking off equipment, gloves must normally be removed to reach all the straps, helmet buckles or even the ties. This makes handling inconvenient – particularly at cold temperatures. Quiksilver, the manufacturer of high-quality clothing, winter sports equipment, footwear and accessories, and Quiksilver’s young women’s fashion label Roxy offer snowboard helmets that help ensure comfort and safety for the boarding scene and remove the need for inconvenient putting-on and taking-off of gloves. This means that Quiksilver Axis and the Roxy Muse feature a luxury chin strap with a Fidlock buckle. The helmet buckles with the SNAP helmet buckle are easy to operate even with gloves on, are self-closing, and prevent the skin being pinched in the process.

Quick release buckle for camera backpack

Easy access to camera equipment is essential for taking snapshots – safe camera use is important for protecting expensive equipment. MindShift Gear has therefore created the Rotation 180° backpacks for camera equipment. We have already introduced a backpack for camera equipment by MindShift Gear with quick-release buckle based on the SLIDER 25 plastic shield. Now let’s take a closer look at the innovative Rotation 180° technology with the product video from MindShift Gear: Every backpack for camera equipment from the Rotation 180° range enables the fast and safe rotation of the camera in the hip bag from the back to the stomach. The quick release buckle is unclipped with one hand and the bag instantly rotated out of the lower section to the front of the body. Unclipping the quick release buckle and taking a photograph can be done in seconds. See for yourself how the MindShift Gear backpack for camera equipment with Rotation 180° technology and Fidlock quick release buckle helps photographers to safely transport their equipment and take snaphshots.
