Travis Rice Joins Team Contour

Travis Rice, backcountry powderhound and winner of just about every prestigious boarding accolade including 2 XGames gold medals, is now part of the Contour Team!

After searching for the best, most low profile point-of-view camera, Rice chose to represent Contour, “Out of pure necessity.” He added, “Seeking out the best image in the category and a sleek profile just makes more sense. With a new arsenal of attachments, getting one-of-a-kind footage is only limited by your creativity. I am proud to be a part of the future of Contour!”

– The Art of Flight

As the most slender camera on the market, the Contour cams are perfect for snowboarding and skiing among other action sports. The Water resistant design lets you ditch the need for a housing and helps reduce extra bulk when riding. This makes the camera more aerodynamic that when mounted to your helmet and ensures truly one of a kind POV footage.

The GPS camera also adds a new layer to your filming experience by tracking location, altitude, and speed. This feature is especially awesome for charting your performance down the side of a mountain.

We’re all excited to see what type of amazing footage Travis Rice will capture and will keep you posted on the new and noteworthy clips as they arrive. For those of you wanting to see some of Rice’s downhill mastery, make sure to check out the Art of Flight (preview above).
