Years ago, when Co-Founder and extreme sport enthusiast Gordon Hay, was designing some of the first ALINE prototypes (using scrap plastic and bar napkins) he had one goal in mind: for extreme athletes to be able to “Go hard and land soft.” Athletes want to perform better to become the best at what they do, and after years of experience and product development, we are proud to have mastered a high-tech product that so many have found essential to their training and performance. It means so much to us when we hear our professional athletes gloating about how ALINE has helped them train harder, train longer, and achieve their professional goals…but what is more rewarding than a compliment…?

…That’s easy: the hardware.

ALINE would like to congratulate all of the X Games Tignes competitors, and give a special shout to those competing in perfect ALINEment. ALINEd athletes took 5 out of 8 Gold Medals and a total of 13 out of 24 podium spots overall! See below for the full list of ALINE X Games Royalty…
