Athletes and brand ambassadors
We have a long tradition of sponsoring professional athletes and selected projects.
One of our first endeavors was to support Reinhold Messner in the late seventies with a product engineered with GORE-TEX product technology on an expedition in the Himalayas. Since then, we’ve been working with numerous athletes around the world and have supported hundreds of projects. We especially value their input and support during field tests of prototype garments and new materials in order to develop garments that are fit for use.
Sponsorship is an integral part of our business. We value the dedication and commitment of professional athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who set out every day on exceptional projects around the world. We’re proud to be a partner in their endeavors through garments, footwear and accessories engineered with GORE-TEX or WINDSTOPPER® product technology produced by our partners, which protect them and keep them comfortable in situations when they really need it.
Our sponsorship philosophy is based around specific professional athletes and specific international events. We support projects of athletes who are experts in mountaineering, mountain running, free skiing or ski touring. Through our partnerships we help them to accomplish their projects and our athletes value us as a reliable and trusted partner.
