Melon Goggles

Product of The Week: Melon Goggles

By | Products, Snow Xchange | No Comments

Here at X-Ten we’re always on the look out for great new products to have in store that will really benefit you; our customers, and our riders. We work closely with our brands to find the perfect product for the right purpose, and it’s really important to us that we get it right, so we were stoked when we discovered Melon, and saw great potential in them for this season.

Melon Optics started with a group of friends shredding up the Indonesian surf dreaming up sunglass designs. But that wasn’t enough, and so soon enough they were producing goggles as well.

Melon has some impressive specs; fleece lined triple density foam, super flexible frame, and dual layered hardened anti scratch coated Ziess lens with 100% UV 400 protection.

All fantastic features, but the defining difference of Melon is that they’re fully customisable! You choose your colour and style of frame, strap and lenses. They’ve got a very comprehensive range of lenses to suit your needs and preferences; Made for both blue bird and white out, Melon have constructed a perfect line of goggles you’re going to want, especially now that you know they can always match the rest of your gear with their on trend colours.

Most of our team are already riding in them, and totally loving them! So, come in store and mix and match today!

Or maybe you’ve already got a pair of our Melons? What do you think? Let us know!

Roxa Ski Boots

ROXA Chameleon – The Kids Boot That Grows!

By | Products, Snow Xchange | No Comments

At X-Ten Collective we do things a little differently, which means that the products we sell in our store are often a little different from what you might see in other snow sport stores around New Zealand. We stand by all the products we sell, and want you to have faith in them too. For ski boots we look no further than Roxa, who are an Italian company who design and produce quality ski boots. They’ve been tested and proven to withstand a dynamic and competitive use, on and international level, but also with our team and customers over the last four seasons that we’ve been stocking them.

In 1980 four brothers decided to start assembling ski boots on behalf of the main ski bands in their area at the time such as Scarpa, Nordica etc. As their success of working in a small workroom in Asolo, Italy, increased so did the demand for ski-boots which in turn led to an agreement in 2000 to design and produce ski-boots for sporting company, Kneissl. For the next three years this agreement remained in place until the brothers decided to develop a new series of moulds for ski boots, and so they started a new collection with their own ROXA brand.

Today, Roxa is one of the leading in the ski boot sector and this has all been made possible thanks to long experience, passion for work, continuous ambition towards improvement and the precious collaboration with the world champion Marc Cirardell. Since 2003 Roxa has become the image of perfection, high performance and reliability or more simply the symbol of made in Italy.

As a collective, we know and trust Roxa as a reliable ski boot brand. Within the four season we have been collaborating with them, their reputation has never faulted and their quality/ service has never seised to amaze us. Not one warrant claim has been made within the time we have been working together which further proves to us and our customers they are reliable and live up to their high standard they have set for themselves. To give you an idea of the extent our faith reaches in the company Roxa, We have put our entire ski team, who compete at a national level, in high performance Roxa boots. To us they are the best boot we can provide as a company and have the best performance for money ratio on the market.

Roxa Chameleon

Got kids who just won’t stop growing out out their ski gear? Then you’re going to love Roxa!

Enter the Roxa Chameleon. What do the cutest lizards known to man kind have to do with my childs’ ever growing feet you ask? Well, this junior boot can change sizes as fast a chameleon changes its’ colours and is designed for the growth and comfort of your child. It will re-adjust in a click of the fingers to match the growth of your little one. Both the length and buckles adjust to the growth in the foot and lower leg keeping the support a regular boot would possess whilst always remaining a snug and comfortable fit. When cramming a foot in a boot too small becomes too much of a struggle, just remove the two screws and simply slide the toe box forward giving the wearer another two and a half full sizes of space just like that! So hopefully, if timed right, throughout the young skiing years of your child, you will only have to buy two pairs of boot. The first pair has a size range between 18-21.5 and the second pair between 22-25.5. Its’ easy entry makes it perfect to slip in and out with no fuss and the fluffy warm inner even more cozy for a nice enjoyable day up the mountain.

The Chameleon come it two sizes;

Chameleon 2: sizes 18-21.5 = $229.99

Chameleon 3: sizes 22-25.5 = $249.99

As well as these we also stock a fantastic range of Roxa boots for adults. So pop into Snow Xchange today to suss out some boots for you or your kids for this killer season!
