Pro Setups: Chloe Kim
TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll 16 Women’s Rookie of The Year Nomination
At the age of 15, Chloe Kim has already catapulted to the the top the Superpipe game, snagging first at X Games 15 and earning bragging rights for becoming the youngest competitor to ever win X Games Gold. Kim’s fierce, yet poised riding, is seen on and off-hill. Kim tells us her style is influenced by everyone she rides with. "I'm a huge fan of fashion, so I love getting new jackets, pants and switching them up all the time," she says.
Of the gear she rides the hardest and replaces most often, Kim admits she goes through a lot of Burton boards. "I always bring a few to every contest, just in case." Kim rarely has a problem making the podium though, and we're stoked to see her continue to rise through the ranks.
