B$Z: DMOS Collective Launches The Ultimate Terrain-Building Snow Shovel: Kicker Tool

October 21, 2015

DMOS Collective, manufacturers of portable terrain jump tools, announces the Kicker Tool™, the ultimate terrain-building tool for skiers and snowboarders looking to get creative, go big and have fun. Tested by pro athletes such as Travis Rice and Tim Durtschi, DMOS was born to satisfy the need for pro-quality, purpose-built and durable tools to build better jumps.

The Kicker Tool™ is a lightweight and completely packable shovel designed with backcountry booters and urban jibs in mind. Built to last with aircraft quality aluminum alloy and featuring a shovelhead that efficiently moves, packs and rakes large amounts of snow, the Kicker Tool™ makes building and sculpting the perfect jump easy. Featuring 56 inches of leverage for quick powerful shoveling and a serrated edge to level unwanted bumps and break up crud allowing users to create a flawless takeoff. At a mere 3.3 pounds, it doesn’t weigh much more than a full water bottle and converts into a packable unit that fits into any ski or snowboard backpack.  

“The tools needed to build snow-based jumps have not kept up with the modern progression of snowboarding and freeskiing,” said Susan Pieper, founder of DMOS. “DMOS is all about giving people the tools they need for the sports they love.”

Please help support DMOS through their Kickstarter campaign. Your support will help fund production and continue research and development to make even more tools tailored to the needs of skiers and snowboarders everywhere.
