Product Spotlight: New DC 2018 Snow Gear with Iikka Backstrom

The DC crew and Iikka Backstrom stopped by the office to talk about their latest projects, as well as to let us check out the latest and greatest snow gear pumping out from the historic brand. And here it is, an exclusive look at some of the products that you can get your hands on right now from the DC site!

When he is not creating insane video parts and enjoying his time skating around Encinitas during the off-season, Iikka teams up with Director of Snowboarding Hardgoods at DC Shoes, Dave Appell, to help create some of the product he rides. Focusing on the DC Space Echo, the latest board under his feet, Iikka said, “I wanted to make an all-around snowboard that could do everything basically. I was focusing on backcountry mostly, and it ended up winning the jib category for Good Wood… so that is pretty funny, but I think it still works great in the backcountry!”
