Burton Snowboards and Lucasfilm have come together this winter to bring Star Wars™ snowboard gear to groms everywhere. Just in time for the holidays, Burton is offering a super limited run of two new youth snowboarding products inspired by Star Wars, including a RED youth helmet called the ‘Avid Grom R2-D2’ and a limited edition series of Chopper Star Wars™ snowboards for kids.
The Force is definitely with the new Avid Grom R2-D2 helmet, which is designed after everyone’s favorite droid sidekick, and features a lightweight in-molded polycarbonate shell. Little groms can impersonate the classic Star Wars character both on and off the mountain since the helmet can be worn on snow, for skateboarding or on bike rides.
Available now is the series of limited-edition, youth-sized Chopper snowboards that showcase eight different iconic images from the original Star Wars trilogy, including Yoda, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and the original movie poster. The Chopper Star Wars™ youth snowboards come in small sizes that range from 80 cm to 130 cm long.
