Promodels[edit]

Morrison has had a number different 'promodel' products with his sponsors K2 Skis, Full Tilt Ski Boots and Oakley . Morrison's two promodel skis with K2 Skis are the Obsethed and new for the 2012/2013 season the SideSeth. The Obsethed has undergone much change since the original Obsethed, the last model of the Obsethed was released for the 2011/2012 season. The Obsethed was then replaced by the SideSeth, which featured a more directional rocker profile and being in K2's Adventure category was marketed more at the backcountry skier than the Obsethed. However the SideSeth has experienced much success with inbounds skiers also. Morrison's promodel with Full Tilt boots is the Seth Morrison Pro Boot, it features the second stiffest flex tongue available from Full Tilt (8 Flex), and a number of distinctive aesthetic features chosen by Seth. The boot is marketed at all mountain and freeride/big mountain skiers, and thus it is important to note it was the first boot from Full Tilt to feature the rubber sole as stock for the 2012/2013 season. Seth Morrison's has also had a number of promodel outerwear suits from Oakley.
