Arva x Léo Slemett

"These words best describe my life philosophy. Born in the Chamonix mountains, I grew up surrounded by snow-capped peaks, and these became my playground and my passion. Having such intensive skiing practice from a very young age has taken me to the highest level in my sport, with the highlight a first world title on the Freeride World Tour and multiple expeditions. The mountains are therefore my daily training ground, but also my driving force. They can, however, suddenly turn into dangerous terrain, even for the most experienced skiers. Every time I go freeriding at a high level on skis, I always take my ARVA equipment.

As the first tester of ARVA’s avalanche safety equipment, this collaboration on the development of the new RIDE range therefore seemed like a no-brainer. And now… it's your turn to play it safer !"
