G-Shock is proud to introduce the highly anticipated Winter G-Lide GLS8900LV-2 signature watch with brand ambassador and professional snowboarder Louie Vito. Winter Olympic Medallist, Winter X Games and U.S. Grand Prix Champion; his professional snowboard career echoes the elite performance and unwavering commitment of the G-Shock brand.

Adding to his long list of top finishes, Louie wrapped up the 2012/2013 contest season winning Europe’s premiere snowboarding event, the 2013 Winter X Games. While astonishing judges and fans alike with his snowboarding skills Louie has also created a name for himself off the hill.

For those that are still chasing an autograph, Louie’s “LV” signature is printed on the watch band and engraved on the case back. The deep indigo blue case and highlights suggests clear “bluebird” winter skies, balanced with a reverse LCD display for enhanced visibility in bright light conditions. This is a true performance timepiece that happens to make a fashion statement.

The perfect on-mountain watch, Louie Vito’s signature GLS8900LV-2 is both Shock and Water Resistant and equipped with Low-Temperature Resistance down to -20C/-4F. Prioritising rugged durability and technical performance, the Auto LED Super Illuminator allows you to activate the backlight with a flick-of-the –wrist, without removing your gloves to press the front-mount light button, while Dual 1/100th Second Stopwatches and Countdown Timer give you the tools to clock your runs down the mountain. 48-City World Time + UTC makes it easy to follow winter worldwide, and four Multi-function alarms means you won’t miss first lift and more importantly first tracks – however, if you need just a little more rest for those sub-zero, bullet-proof morning conditions, the Snooze Function is ideal.
