     The deal with Kazu is this:
    Adidas is trying to get into the snow game, making a big push. They gave Kazu a giant pile of money that Burton couldn't give. He wasn't cut, he left. Yes he's trying other brands out for Boards and Bindings.  

    Alex Andrews is no longer on the Burton Team but is now working for Burton.

    gerry said: it's a signal, as stated by Johan in the capita thread, and seem by the signal logo on the nose (look close).

     
    He rode a Signal for the Every Third Thursday deal. I've "heard" that he's been digging the Stairmaster Extreme and Union Team bindings. Again, only hearsay. I think I also got wind that he was riding a NAS. Can not confirm any of the above, only going from what I saw while at CAMPiTA. What ever he was riding, he was definitely DEFENDING AWESOME.

    What am I missing here, though? Doesn't Nico ride for Nike, (Probably due to a giant pile of money as well.) but still ride burton boards and bindings?

    I guess it doesn't matter. No one really knows what went down but He and B.
    Bottom line is, he doesn't ride for Burton anymore.

     The difference between Burton making the exception for that Nike deal with Nico is he is on a whole other level than Kazu.

    Burton did it for Brushie when he was on Cappel before leaving the B to go with Ride, I believe.

    I was expecting them to land this season TBH. Even as late/early/whatever release.

    Anyway if they manage to make a boot as good as nike i see win all over (for the consumer). They know footwear and i think salomon boots got better after they had adidas involved.

    Are they going in with the brand name this time? If I'm not mistaken this won't be the first time in snowboarding for Adidas. In 1997 Adidas bought the Salomon Group, and owned it until 2005, so they were paying Daniel Frank and Mike Michalchuk. For instance.

     Ok ok fine, I'll stay.

    By the way, Isn't this Adidas' second time around in the snowboard game? I remember the owner at Sanction saying that Adidas made boots one year but they were horrible, and that they were going for a second try in the near future.

    Yes, Adidas owned Salomon for a bit, I don't think they were really running things, just providing monies, maybe some shoe tech trickled into the boots, but Salomon boots were never Adidas boots.

    And yes, they made a run of Adidas forums as boots one year as a limited thing. I think this time they're going for hightech/performance, hence signing Blauvelt as their forerunner.

    Alex is a "Brand Ambassador" like Dave Downing. Still riding, has a couple shots in Think Thank and Video Grass.

    If adidas made a superstar type boot with a shell toe, or one like the team mundial - similar to Nike's DK from 2012 - then I'd be all over them.

    Sadly we don't have any paparazzi type shots -at least i couldn't find any- of what was on Blauvelts feet last season.
