US Olympic snowboarders to sport NASA spacesuit-inspired uniforms in 2018

When the U.S. Olympic snowboard team takes to the snow in PyeongChang, South Korea, in February, they will be sporting uniforms appropriate for the "giant leaps" they are expected to perform.

Burton Snowboards on Thursday (Nov. 2) revealed one-of-a-kind, NASA astronaut spacesuit-inspired uniforms for the halfpipe, slopestyle and big air snowboarding competitions at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Though a number of the products are presently out of stock, Burton is now offering what it is calling its Gold Elite collection: clothing and accessories modeled after the U.S. Olympic snowboard team's astronaut-inspired wear.

Snowboarder Red Gerard won the gold medal in slopestyle on Sunday (Feb. 11).
