For a long time, Arnaud Ballu has been passionate without limit for skiing, snowboarding, skwaling, ski touring, windsurfing, kitesurfing, mountain biking, motorcycling, paragliding, climbing ...
Then he combined engineering of industrial research centers with development of sports equipment for major outdoor brands.
In the end, the mountain was too beautiful to move away from it and the stories we share there are often the ones that stand out.
His insatiable curiosity for the unknown and for improvement pushed him to seek the same feeling of freedom on snow as that experienced on water. Seeking the same control you get with a handlebars facing downhill. Looking for a simple and light tool with sensations of speed and trajectory combined.
SKIBRID's specifications naturally arose... it remained to find the thread to pull it patiently, because it is sometimes difficult to move against the current of codes and trends.
And then the willingness is gathered, perseverance began to bear fruit. A team was formed and then reinforced. All teammates driven by a common passion, stronger than uncertainty and doubt: the possible start of a new mountain practice, simple, fun and convivial.
SKIBRID is therefore first and foremost a team, a story, and beautiful memories in perspective that will have been shared together, in the mountains.
