New year new team rider, Dragon welcomes Kevin Backstrom to their Global Team.
Kevin’s unparalleled style always stands out, and his recent X Games Real Snow part proved he has the imagination to change the game and skew your view of what’s possible on the slopes. Resort riding, backcountry bossing, Kevin is the real deal and they’re pumped to have him looking ahead in Dragon.
He’s been a fan from an early age, having first noticed Dragon in his early days when playing Amped 2, and now we’re both looking forward to a fruitful partnership for years to come.
Kevin will mostly be seen in the classic goggle the D1, and our premium offering, the PXV2 whilst he sets about filming (and editing) the next Beyond Medals instalment and dropping jaws across the globe.
There's one word to describe Kevin Backstrom's snowboarding: Stylish. A real snowboarder's snowboarder, Kevin can be found trotting the globe, from Air + Style big air events to filming his web series with fellow Monster Energy athlete Tor Lundstrom, BYND x MDLS, the young Swede has parlayed his style of shredding into a cult following. A core snowboarder through and through, Kevin keeps it real by doing what he wants and snowboarding how he wants, evidenced in the aforementioned video series.
