Strafe founders, John and Pete Gaston are serious business in the department of mountain endurance challenges – personally conquering prestigious ski mountaineering races and expanding the line to include specialized pieces for this pursuit.
Strafe outerwear as worn by Mac Bohannon of the US Ski Team.
This outerwear stopped me in my tracks – the clean design and construction of 3-layer hardshell technical fabric, bright red/ blue color combo with white contrast zips, new school fit, and a brand name I had never heard of – it was a powerful introduction to Strafe.
Strafe is a new outerwear company based in Aspen, Colorado – to be precise, Aspen Highlands – which let’s be honest, it doesn’t get much better for a home base. Twin brothers, John and Pete Gaston founded the company in 2009 to fill a need for technical outerwear specific in function, fit and styling for the backcountry freeskier. Perhaps no other piece embodies this objective better than Strafe’s signature Sickbird one-piece suit. With this authenticity and Highland Bowl as testing ground, I’m sold!
Back to Mac. He is a super-talented (and super-friendly) freestyle aerialist who lives in Lake Placid, New York and trains full-time at the Olympic Training Center. Aerial competition demands more sleek outerwear but Mac loves Strafe for freeskiing. Watch him in action at macbohonnon.com.
