We have asked people all over the world what their favorite Celtek product is and why. The majority has ruled it to be our Bitten By A Mitten, now with 14 different styles and 3 different Collaborations, there is bound to be one for you! Not to mention that they are one of our most comfortable mittens as well with a 15k StormDry insert, these puppies will keep you warm and dry all winter. Also this year the Bitten By A Mitten has two of our Pro team riders gloves! The Syles Bjorn and Biittner after Bjorn Leines and Aaron Biittner!
Girls, here at Celtek we know your hands get cold up on the mountain yet you still love the feeling of a glove. Mittens can be bulky or hard to grab things with. Which is exactly why the Hello Operator was made just for you! We know how important it is to keep your hands warm, so we created one of the warmest trigger fingers out there! And isn’t it just a pain to try and get your phone out or pick something up with mitten, not anymore! With our new styles, there is a Hello Operator for everyone! Not to mention the StormDry technology that we put in these Trigger fingers to keep your hands nice and dry. So what are you waiting for girls, get a pair now!

As Celtek has grown to be a worldwide brand providing warm hands and stylish gloves to all types of riders, there are those core shops and people who have been supporting us from the beginning and it wouldn’t be possible to be where we are without them. So in the Dealer Locator we will be able to highlight the core ride shops around the world that help support our brand. They are the people we turn to for advice on their local mountain and area. So this is our way of giving back to them by showing all of you where to shop! These guys are our friends and know whats up!

Hey guys the first episode of Bucket List is live!
Baldface is best described as a rider’s paradise, perched in the Selkirks, just outside of Nelson, BC. Home to the Craig Kelly memorial cross, or Craig’s Cross, and iconic runs such as ‘Scary Cherry,’ which hosted the Super Natural and Ultra Natural, it’s a haven to both pros and everyday riders alike, with some of the best cat-accessible terrain you could possibly want. Not to mention the world-class accommodations, including famed Caesars at the bar. This place is always on our bucket list and we’ll be surprised if it isn’t on yours by the end of this full segment.
Featuring Tyler Nicholson, Bjorn Leines, Ben Ferguson, Erik Leines, Jason Robinson, and Thomas Delfino.
About the Bucket List:
Everyone’s got a few things they’ve always meant to do—maybe getting a first descent, hitting your first real pow day, or taking a lap with Gigi Rüf. The problem is too many of us either never get around to it or never have the chance.
Headed by Bjorn Leines, Bucket List is a five-part series about leaving the excuses behind and checking those shred missions off the list, dropping only on TWSNOW.com.

So we know how often your hands get cold up on the mountain while riding, thats why we make our gloves so warm. But there are those days, or even some people out there, that you just can’t keep your hands warm period. You try to stick those glove warmers in but they are bulky, they only heats up one part of your hand, and they burn out quick. So what is the solution, how do you keep your hands warm all day so you don’t have to go sit in the lodge to gain feeling back in your hands over the fire? Over here at Celtek we thought of everything, that means Heated Gloves. Yes, we put a rechargeable battery in the gloves with heat coils. So at the end of the day you plug your battery into the wall and BOOM your gloves have battery power to keep your fingers warm all day.
So what do you have to do to score these? Its easy go on over to our Store and pre-order them now! Its that simple, and you will have warm hand all winter long! Oh yeah they come in girls styles and guys!
Screaming Hand Collaboration
In the action sports community there are things we grow up seeing over and over again. Whether it is an athlete, company, commentator, brand, logo, or anything else; these things have a greater impact than just being there. But where do they come from? What is their story?
The Screaming Hand is something, in the skate world, that everyone grows up seeing. It marks Santa Cruz on the map and establishes the Santa Cruz skate company and makes it easy to identify. While growing up and going to the skate parks, the older guys who rip at transition skating always seemed to have the screaming hand on the bottom of their board. But where does this iconic logo come from?
The “Screaming Hand”, designed by Jim Phillips Sr. in 1973, and this year Santa Cruz is celebrating their 30 year anniversary with the Screaming Hand. We had the privileged to collaborate with Santa Cruz and design a pair of gloves, launching this year, with the screaming hand! Now you Santa Cruz fans can keep your hands warm in style. We are so happy to team up with Santa Cruz and be able to mix the snow and skate culture in our next years line. Santa Cruz also will have a 30 year anniversary art show for the screaming hand so look out for it in a city near you!
