ISPO 2017 - one of the most important fair for winter sports producers is finally finished. In the area of 180.000 m2, more then 2.650 exhibitors showed the most inovative and new products on the world to 81.000 visitors.
Alpina presented it's new XC and DH collection with great success and big interest from existing and new, potentional customers who visited the booth 224 in Hall A5. In the neighborhood of big brands, our partners and competitors,we spent four busy and exciting days.
The Elite series stands at the forefront of Nordic boot development and performance. Intensive cooperation with Alpina-team medalists throughout exhaustive R&D and testing phases makes for innovative solutions that create the lightest, most responsive ski boots in the world.
Alpina’s Elite classic ECL 2.0 is an extremely light anatomic, single-piece carbon chassis with pliable sole flex and adaptable heel pocket for maximum stability, superior responsiveness and full power transmission.
Alpina’s Active Edge technology employed across the premium lines consists of a special sandwich of inner and outer carbon textile layers. This translates into maximum chassis adaptability to various types and shapes of heels for maximum power and total control. And Free Heel construction virtually eliminates heel stress, making a great ski experience all the more comfortable.
ESK 2.0: Skate with the best
The ESK 2.0 employs a single-piece all-carbon anatomic Active Edge skate chassis that features extremely light, ‘hard’ sole flex to deliver superior lateral responsiveness and maximum longitudinal stiffness and stability. And carbon cuff-to-heel counter hinge construction delivers ultralight, maximal stiffness, minimal rotational hinge friction and optimal ankle fit.
NEW - Race to Win: Upgraded and fine-tuned
Five brand new exciting Racing group models make their Nordic racing debut this season. Now a great boot gets a great upgrade, with a new, airtight textile layer replacing the former PVC construction. The textile is now laminated to the upper boot membrane, which ensures it’s water impermeable and allows the boot to breathe.
. .. And a new TPU heel counter and cuff construction means the shoe provides far better side and torsional stability.
NEW – History in the making: The heat is on
Get ready for the world’s first, new heated Nordic boot – the Alaska Heat! Now Alpina brings its fully-energised Alpine In-Temp heating technology to the world of Nordic skiing. The new Alaska Heat – now’s the time!
Action & Touring: New looks, new simplicity
This season special attention is given to the women’s models. Kids, too, get in on the action with two new models for children. The novelty of two models that focus keeping the boots as warm and comfortable as possible.
The features you need, the skiing you want
The Alpina 2017 collection features a full range of alpine boots, starting with the full-featured high- performance men’s ELITE series and the XTRACK for demanding, all-day recreational skiers. For women, the lightweight-construction advanced and recreational series deliver the optimal balance of performance, comfort and flexibility. And juniors too – tomorrow’s champions – are well-served, with junior-sport fit liners, wider buckles and adjustable volume control plates, new atractive colour combination. For boys and girls, for fun and joy !
Alpina is proud to be a part of a big success - the 50th won of Justina Kowalczyk's perfect XC skiing cariere. It has been a pretty long time since she has been on podium, but she was so surprissed and happy to skate so good in yesterday's skiathlon in Korea.
Congrats Justina !
