Rocking some of Bomber Ski’s newest race skis along with a pair of Full Tilt boots and a futuristic helmet made by OSBE, it appears that Miller either has no intentions of fulfilling his contractual obligations with HEAD Sports Group or he has the utmost confidence about winning the proceedings in his ongoing lawsuit with the aforementioned. (For more information regarding the lawsuit please visit Bode Miller in Litigation with Former Sponsor…)

“Perhaps even more intriguing than the Bomber Skis is his use of Full Tilt boots – a brand typically reserved for freestyle athletes though based on the three-piece design of the Raichle Flexon (the very boot Bill Johnson claimed downhill gold in at the 1984 Olympics) – and an OSBE helmet, which is not currently listed as part of the U.S. Ski Team supplier pool. It’s a setup unlike anything fans generally see on the international racing stage.”

Those gates still hurt.

At any rate, it will be interesting to see what Miller can accomplish using such equipment if the court should rule in his favor.
