Sportube About Us
Meet Sportube


Having worked in the retail ski industry for so long, Sportube's founder, Paul Hields, saw first hand how many ski and snowboards got damaged when traveling and thus Sportube was born.


Launching in 1996 with the Series 1 and the Series 2 hard cases with wheels, it proved successful and then came the highly requested Series 3 snowboard case in 1998. Since, Sportube has expanded into soft luggage to compliment their tried and tested hard cases. Sportube is now your 1 stop shop for all your travel needs to protect your gear!

Since launch, Sportube has expanded past the ski industry into spear and dive, fishing, hunting, sailing, fencing, water ski and so much more as our cases and bags are quite versatile and can be used many ways.

Headquarters is located high in the Rockies, in Avon, Colorado. Our hard cases are manufactured in Sturgis, Michigan and we have a remote office in Bend, Oregon!

Meet The Team

Paul Hields

President & Owner

Paul started Sportube back in the 90s when he saw a huge need for protective equipment for his skis as he has been working in the ski industry for many years. When Paul is not in the office or starting a new business *cough cough his new company Wildsyde eCruisers*, you can usually catch him out biking, skiing, or up in Michigan with his wife, Margo.

Evan Romaniak

Director of Sales

Evan heads up the sales operations at Sportube and has been working with the Sportube team for the past 4 years. With adventure and travel at his core, Sportube has been the perfect career match to blend both his personal and professional goals. Hailing from Bend, Oregon he grew up and maintains his passions as an avid skier, biker, golfer and outdoor enthusiast. If you catch him on the hill, trails or course make sure to give him a shout and a high five as he is a social butterfly who loves to meet new people and build new connections everywhere he goes.

Lindsay Quatrale

Director of Operations

If you have ever contacted Sportube you most likely have spoken to Lindsay. She is our 'Swiss Army Knife' and handles all aspects of the business. From customer service to order fulfillment, she has got it all! She is an avid skier, hiker, and all around outdoor enthusiast. If you ever get the chance to make it up to Bend, OR, where she is located, you will most likely see her out and about with her two dogs, Harper and Barley. She never goes anywhere without them!

Check Out our sister company, Wildsyde Electric Bikes

Wildsyde™ was founded by Paul Hields, the President and Owner of Sportube™ products. He's been in the biz for 25+ years and knows how to design (and use) great products. Paul has been a passionate biker since he could first pedal around as a kid and continued throughout his life into road biking, mountain biking, and now; Vintage eCruisers.


Paul and his wife, Margo, bike religiously together in Colorado, Michigan, and even Europe, however, because of health issues (Margo had a heart transplant 25 years ago), she was never able to keep up! This is when Paul realized the beauty of the e-bike; it has not only helped Margo continue to bike with him but it has allowed them to run simple errands or go grab a beer in style without having to drive their car! Which brings us to the founding and future of Wildsyde
™, the Vintage eCruisers.
