With over 69 million skiers across Europe, Apex recognizes the opportunity for growth well beyond their current reach.

Unlike anything on the market, Apex offers seven unique models that combine the warmth, comfort and walkability of a snowboard boot in a high performance open chassis design that is revolutionizing the skiing experience. Through technology-driven innovation, Apex has proven that an optimal, comfortable fit is the key to better performance and improved control on the mountain.

Hoping to reach supporters that are also skiing enthusiasts who believe in the products they back, founder and president, Denny Hanson, is offering investors their choice of a pair of Apex ski boots with a custom fitting as a thank you for their interest in growing the snowsports brand.
