The Vie has a clean dynamic design; the lines flow with the contours of the hand to feel purposeful and ergonomic. To keep the sport natural and dynamic, the input is made via a unique, single hand control interface. It is made from waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric with injection moulded EVA housing.
