T-Bar Films X Pit Viper: Drifting May 06, 2014 09:19

 "There's no 'wax on wax off' with drifting. You learn by doing it. The first drifters invented drifting out here in the mountains by feeling it. So feel it." - Han (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift)

The Pit Viper Venom is Strong - TGR

 

Chuck Mumford

Hailing from Alta/Snowbird, Chuck Mumford skis naked and travels in his van. Last spring on a ski touring trip in the Tetons, Chuck broke his pricey, top-of-the-line sunglasses and his search for the indestructible began.

He found what he was looking for in these military grade, adjustable, protective glasses made right here in the U.S.A. Oh, and in case you were wondering, they also happen to be bullet proof. Chuck bought thousands of these glasses, hand paints each pair and transforms them into his own brand of shades that demands respect and authority: Pit Viper.

“Pit Viper is an organic movement,” Chuck said. “The stars aligned the day Pit Viper was born. The glasses met my hands and the alliance was formed.”

In its young life, existing only since the spring of 2012, Pit Viper has caught on fast with a rogue following around the ski industry with its powerful, retro look.

“Pit Viper tickles an era that everyone in snow sports can relate too,” said Chuck. “Pointy tipped skis and snowboards were the jam, and everyone was having a really radical time. It’s very important to keep the fun alive and Pit Viper is dedicated to doing its part.”

Whether he and his team are mobbing the streets of Aspen or getting new product on the website, Pit Viper has arrived. As Chuck puts it, “Pit Viper is hatched but it is still juvenile. This means the venom is very strong.”

Want to get rad with a pair? Check out the different designs and purchase online at pitvipersunglasses.com. If you and your buddies want to custom order, you can do so with a purchase of 10 or more. Look out for Chuck, his van and his Pit Vipers this winter.

Thank you GrindTV Style Blog for this:

When Oakley ceased production on its Oakley Razor Blade, extreme men and women everywhere shed a radical tear of sadness. They roamed the Earth looking for a sunglasses alternative, but were left utterly uninspired. Until now. Meet the bolder, cheaper, and more bulletproof version of the iconic Razor Blade: the Pit ViperPit Viper sunglasses are the perfect fit for action sports enthusiasts, coming in more than 15 different colorways ranging from the all-white Storm Trooper, to the glow-in-the dark Firefly. Pit Viper's lenses are military grade to protect your eyes. Drop them, step on them, slam them in the car door--heck, shoot them with a 15-caliber steel pellet, and these things will still be ready for the after party. If you do manage to break them, the team at Pit Viper will be so impressed that they'll ship you another pair for free, as long as you film or reenact the destruction. To all the snowboarders, skiers, surfers, and skaters who live life to the fullest and have fun doing it, pick up a pair of Pit Vipers. You won't regret it. MSRP $40.00 --Kade Krichko

It's Hard to Look Better Than This Guy October 09, 2012 09:56


Ladies, this guy obviously knows what you are looking for. Just try to give him a little rest tonight because he has been ripping Snowbird so hard that it may be hard for him to be hard.
