NIXON FUELS PROGRESSION AT BILLABONG AIR & STYLE 2013
Nixon is proud to continue its association with the legendary Billabong Air & Style contest, set to unfold in the Austrian Alps on February 1-2, 2013.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Air & Style, and Nixon will be on hand in Innsbruck to make sure the winner of this career-defining, maximum-rated Snowboard World Tour contest walks away from the Bergisel stadium with something extra-special.
A field of world-class riders, including the likes of reigning champion Peetu Piiroinen, will battle it out under floodlights on Saturday, February 2 in a bid to earn the lion's share of the ranking points and prize-money on offer. And with the added incentive of bagging a custom-made Nixon Magnacon SS watch worth a cool US$ 10,000, each of the riders will be going all out to ensure they walk away with this unique timepiece.
The terms 'unique' and 'limited edition' are bandied about a lot these days, but in the case of this specially hand-crafted Nixon Magnacon SS watch, those descriptions are fully merited. One of one, this 6-hand, Swiss Made chronograph features a unique design including a highly polished black casing, sapphire markers and laser-etched rear casing commemorating the Air & Style's 20th anniversary.
Franck Corbery, Marketing Manager at Nixon Europe, said: "The Air & Style has shaped freestyle snowboarding, and is well and truly part of its history. Very few contests stand the test of time, let alone get to celebrate a 20th anniversary. This watch is a fitting way for Nixon to honor that achievement as well as the riding that continues to drive the evolution of the sport."
