Stay warm while making turns or mountain mayhem with artistically designed CELTEK performance snowboarding gloves, mittens, beanies, and facemasks, on sale now.
Did you know? Spyder once almost got KA-POW’d by Spider Man. In an article celebrating Australian skier and Spyder athlete Steven Lee’s 1985 Alpine World Cup win, Sports Illustrated referred to the athlete as “Spider Man.” It’s a dream for a brand to be featured in such a high-profile magazine but for Spyder, the honor soon turned into a nightmare. Marvel Comics sent the company a legal warning of trademark infringement. Before Marvel finally dropped action, Spyder founder David Jacobs believed his business, still relatively young, was doomed. Like a real Peter Parker, Lee went on to briefly take a new identity, working with Jackie Chan as a lead stunt skier and snowmobiler in the 1996 film, First Strike.
