After the 24-year-old won his first World Cup, at the beginning of last season, he kept winning contests and at the end of the winter was awarded the crystal ball for the SBX World Cup title. This was the highlight of what has been an extremely successful career for Omar, which began when he was only twelve years old, participating in his first snowboard contest. "From that moment I knew that I wanted to become a snowboard pro one day", says the Völkl rider, who also won the World Junior Championships in 2009. "This season has definitely been the most important for me as besides participating at the Olympic Games and winning the World Cup title I also became Italian Champion", he explains. And the board that is always on his side in competitions is the Coal Race.
In the World Cup, Omar Visintin totally trusts the Coal Race: "I owe my results to this super fast board! It's very easy to ride and very stable despite its light weight. On the flat the board glides, it carves when it’s turned and shows great response in the technical parts of the slope." The new Coal Race is equipped with special vibration absorbers specifically designed for racers, which guarantees stability and perfect control. The Pin-Tail Shape, with extra wide nose and extra big radius makes speed junkies’ heart miss a beat. "I can recommend this board to anyone", says Omar; "no matter if you are into racing or just a passionate rider the Coal Race is the perfect choice for anyone who loves speed and pushes their limits."
