ALPINA'S PRO LINE gets RED DOT AWARD 2023
Alpina and Studio Miklavc have won the Red Dot Award for their PRO line of cross-country ski boots, marking their fifth consecutive win. With a rich tradition of 76 years in producing high-quality footwear, Alpina is globally recognized for its innovative cross-country ski boots that prioritize comfort, stability, and durability. The redesign of the PRO line reflects a systematic approach and a holistic brand image.
Robert Križnar, the visionary behind the award-winning project and an innovator in cross-country skiing footwear, explains the development process: "We follow the principle of 'fair development' in creating our high-end cross-country ski boots at the Alpina factory. This involves thorough research, development, and integration of all functional features into the product. We reinforce them with technological solutions and industrial design, a practice we have upheld for the past 15 years, resulting in numerous prestigious awards. We aim to maintain these values in the future."
The successful collaboration between Alpina's experts and Studio Miklavc's design team exemplifies exceptional synergy between designers and innovators. By working together and pursuing continuous improvement, they achieve perfection in the finished products. These products, combined with cutting-edge technology, ensure an optimal fit and maximum efficiency. Studio Miklavc emphasizes the importance of design elements in communicating advantages to customers, enhancing their experience with the brand.
The PRO line, recognized with the Red Dot award, offers models for both skating and classic cross-country skiing techniques. The key innovation lies in the sole, developed and manufactured by Alpina for both types of shoes. The skating technique sole features higher cleats at the heel and 45-degree angled cleats at the front, enhancing torsional stability and dynamic responsiveness. The diagonal technique sole differs in the position of the metal axis, contributing to better push-off and prolonged contact with the snow. The sole design optimizes glide wax zone and flexing in the ankle area, enhancing overall performance.
With the PRO line, Alpina caters to top users who seek the same level of excellence as professional competitors in the World Cup, World Championships, and the Olympic Games. These boots deliver exceptional quality and performance within all cross-country skiing disciplines, offering athletes the edge they need.
