Armada CRJacket – Product Testing
Basalt Bike & Ski hooked up Hunt with the new CR Jacket from Armada….BIG UPS!!!! The jacket gives 100% of the proceeds to the CR Foundation and is working on helping people with head injuries and the future of the sport of skiing. Hunt wrote us this text message when he got the new jacket, “I couldn’t be more proud to rock this jacket for CR. My fallen bredren is always been remember as a souljah and visionary for the sport. His heart was as big as the cliffs he dropped…miss him and hope to continue his name in the positive future.” You can tell it’s more than just a jacket to the people that knew CR and rode with him all over the world. He is also featured in “The Crash Reel” by Kevin Pearce. It touches on CR’s attempt to contact Kevin after his injury to talk…..CR’s second brain injury claimed his life before they could link up. “No one knows what we go through with our brain trauma better than those that share this situation. I would love to talk to Kevin about many things….,” an except from one of his letters to Kevin…
Make sure to check out Basalt Bike & Ski on facebook and their website. If you get by there this winter let them know the Gatsby sent you to get a nice deal on a tune. Get out there and slide on some snow already!!!!
Proceeds from the sale of the jacket will benefit the CR Johnson Healing Center in Truckee, CA. Under the guidance of the High Fives Foundation the Healing Center provides recuperative resources especially for Traumatic Brain Injuries and athletes that suffer life-altering injury not otherwise available to injured athletes.” -Kahlil Johnson, Lorraine Johnson, & Rusty Johnson
