Sandbox Winter 2019 Sneak Preview

by Adam Levitt |

Winter 2018 is in full swing, but for the past few weeks we've been showcasing our 2019 line of helmets, goggles, and softgoods at retailer trade shows around the world. We've been developing this product for the last 12 months and we're excited we finally get to share it with you. Here's a sneak peek of a few awesome things we have in store for 2019.

We were extremely excited to launch the Kingpin goggle this winter and we're stoked to bring it back for 2019 with 3 new colour ways and the existing Black with Polarized Shift lens. New strap designs and lens colours keep the Kingpin line looking tight for Winter 2019. All Kingpin models except the Black with Polarized Shift include a bonus lens.

If you're looking for a larger, higher volume goggle, The Boss is your best option. The Boss offers superior vision and comfort with a low profile frame and oversized spherical lens. Like the Kingpin, The Boss Black with Polarized shift lens returns from Winter 2018 and the all new Boss Jungle with Gold Ion lens debuts for Winter 2019. The Boss Jungle also includes a bonus Rose lens.

One lesson we learned from you, the customer, is you're crazy about our print designs on our helmets. This year we debuted the Classic 2.0 Spaced Out and it's become one of our best sellers. We've added some new print designs for 2019, which look even better in person then pictured below. We've also paired a few models of helmets with matching goggle models. The Classic 2.0 Rose Camo matches the Kingpin Rose Camo and the Classic 2.0 Jungle matches the Boss Jungle.

 New editions to the 2018-19 Classic 2.0 Snow line (from left to right): Rose Camo, Jungle Camo, Black Team

Continuing the theme from our Classic 2.0 line, our Legend line of helmets gets a few new prints for 2019. We've carried over the Spaced Out print to the Legend because of the huge success of the Classic 2.0 Spaced Out. For something a little more subtle, the Legend Black Roses will be a great option.

While they're not new for 2019, we obviously need to mention our premium line of Apex helmets. Available in the Legend and Classic 2.0 shapes, our Apex line features the BOA fit system, a removable plush/washable comfort liner and plush Audio Ready ear covers, neck cozy and chin strap and a deep metallic matte finish. The Apex line also features our metallic-under-matte paint finish which gives each helmet a really cool rich pearlescent look. Both models have a vented low profile hard-core EPS liner and removable goggle clip. Check out the Apex models below.

Jamie Nicholls Wearing Sandbox Helmets & Eyewear

by Adam Levitt |

Sandbox is honoured to announce Jamie Nicholls, the Bradford, UK born snowboarder, is now riding both Sandbox helmets and eyewear.

In a country with no mountain snow resorts, Jamie started his days snowboarding at Halifax Dry Slope. Growing up in his parents farm house, this Yorkshire lad loved all the homely comforts of British country life; the great outdoors, English tea and of course spending every minute he could on the dry slope five minutes from his house.

In 2014, Jamie represented Team GB at the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia. Making it to the finals, Jamie finished 6th, missing out on a podium finish by 1 point. In 2016, Jamie became the first British male to win a Snowboard World Cup at the Snow Jam in the Czech Republic.

Currently training for the 2018 Pyeonchang Winter Olympics in South Korea, Jamie continues to travel the world competing and training on his ‘stand up sledge’.

"I'm super happy to be with Sandbox not only for helmets but also for eyewear now. They're an amazing brand and happy to be fully on board going forwards into the Winter Olympics this season. And I can’t wait to get out into the backcountry with the man himself, Kevin Sansalone. Good times ahead!”

“We’re hyped to have Jamie also riding Sandbox eyewear now. He’s been rockin’ the helmets for a long time and knows the brand well and trusts us to protect his head and give him the best vision possible while riding and competing. We wish Jamie all the best at the 2018 Olympics and when all of that is done hopefully he can come out to Whistler and enjoy some free-riding with the Sandbox crew." — Kevin Sansalone / Founder.
