Momentum has partnered with the Stevie Smith Legacy Fund to help honor the passing of an amazing Canadian athlete. Going by the nickname 'Chainsaw' Stevie hailed from Vancouver Island, where he sharpened his mountain biking skills on the rainforest trails of Mt. Prevost. A force on the Canadian downhill racing scene for years, he became an international household name in 2013 after pocketing World Cup wins at Leogang, Hafjell, and Mont-Sainte-Anne, Que. Those efforts culminated in the World Cup Overall Title the same year—downhill racing’s ultimate achievement. Stevie tragically passed away at the age of 26 from a massive brain injury resulting from a motorcycle accident in his hometown of Nanaimo B.C. Proceeds from the sales of this watch will go to the Stevie Smith Legacy Fund which sets out to help the next generation of young rippers reach the podium. Each watch will feature the engraving "Never Forgotten" on the case back.
The ‘Groove’ rubber strap is a regular length strap for everyday wear. It is made of natural rubber, so it is strong, flexible and completely waterproof. Natural rubber can have a “rubbery” smell, so we mix a light Vanilla scent into the rubber mixture to keep it smelling good. Made to withstand the elements, natural rubber offers unmatched durability and comfort for the active wearer and is perfect for any adventure.
