Other notable entries in that classification included an entry from France: Salomon Ghost freerider alpine ski-boot collar, which is one of the first commercial uses worldwide of DuPont Hytrel RS (renewable-sourced) thermoplastic elastomer and from Canada: Bombardier Recreational Products Jet Ski-Ergo Pack.
