Gilson Snow Selected for Transformer Skis and Snowboards

Transformers fans celebrate series’ 35th anniversary while hitting the slopes.

Gilson Snow revealed its new, exclusive TRANSFORMERS x Gilson 35th Anniversary Collaboration during the TRANSFORMERS panel on July 18 at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, CA. Hasbro chose Gilson Snow, Winfield, PA, to produce Transformers-themed skis and snowboards.

The artwork for these limited supply models is straight from the G1 TRANSFORMERS vaults. Production was limited edition; only 35 each of the skis and snowboards will ever be made. Each unit is certified with its own unique authenticated production number, which is assigned to the owners’ name at the point of purchase.

Each snowboard and pair of skis are crafted from poplar hardwood and aerospace composites with Gilson’s award-winning design. Gilson applies aeronautical engineering concepts to create products that have a three-dimensional base that offer a “Soft Edge” for a buttery or “surfy” feel not offered in traditional products. The proprietary design accelerates the learning curve for beginners and stores more energy for the “pop” that is sought by experienced users.

Gilson Snow is a portfolio company of the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Northeastern Pennsylvania. To inquire about the availability of the TRANSFORMERS skis or snowboards, please contact Gilson Snow directly at or call them at 570.798.9102.
