Brian Bartlett "Backcountry Skiing with the BTK"

Hi guys

  I thought I'd share a video of my sponsor, a fantastic guy whom I'm sure you will have heard me mention before, his name Brian Bartlett.

I can't speak highly enough of Brian, not just because he has given my what some would say is a free leg, No it's more than that. Brian has a real passion for everything he does and it's not all about making money, he is friendly, supportive and a really caring guy. He likes to meet people on a one to one basis and see just how they get along with his design. Brian is constantly trying to push the boundaries, come up with new ideas and try to help make it so there are no limits to what you can do as an above knee amputee.

I feel very lucky and proud to be able to class Brian as not only my sponsor, but also a good m8 too. Yeah we may live thousand of miles apart, however Brian still has a huge influence on how I'm able to live my life and in the things I want to achieve. The Bartlett Tendon or BTK has allowed me to do far more than I ever thought and I'm sure there is more to come.

In our last email converstaion Brian mentioned he had posted another new video of himself skiing in Back country and so I thought I would share it with you.


  1. Yeah I agree with you Glenn. The amout of influence Brian has on your riding and the sheer confidence the knee has given you in riding is nothing short of incredible. I don't feel quite so guilty asking you to do ever increasingly difficult stuff for our shoots.
    Brian, keep up the fantastic work that I know comes from your heart !!!
