G-SHOCK and professional snowboarder Athlete Louie Vito collaborate for G-LIDE Watch
Casio is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its G-SHOCK watch brand by releasing a new collaborative model developed with brand ambassador and professional snowboarder Louie Vito. Winter Olympic Medalist, Winter X Games and U.S. Grand Prix Champion; Louie’s professional snowboard career echoes the elite performance and unwavering commitment of the G-SHOCK brand. The deep indigo blue case and highlights suggest clear bluebird winter skies, balanced with a reverse LCD display for enhanced visibility in bright light conditions. This is a true performance timepiece that also happens to make a serious fashion statement.
The perfect on-mountain watch, Louie Vito’s signature GLS8900LV-2 is shock- and water-resistant and equipped with low-temperature resistance down to -20°C/-4°F. Prioritizing rugged durability and technical performance, the Auto LED Super Illuminator allows the user to activate the backlight with a flick-of-the-wrist, without removing gloves to press the front-mount light button, while the dual 1/100 second stopwatches and countdown timer deliver the tools to clock runs down the mountain.
The 48-city World Time feature makes it easy to follow winter worldwide, and four multi-function alarms means the user will never miss first lift—and more importantly first tracks—however, those who need just a little more rest for those sub-zero, bullet-proof morning conditions will find the snooze function ideal.
