Vibram, the manufacturer of high quality rubber soles, is proud to announce the creation of a new team of athletes, the Vibram SkiAlp Team, which is set to represent the company behind the yellow octagon in the most important ski mountaineering competitions.
While ski mountaineering is currently experiencing a boom, its history with Vibram is long-standing. The company has noted a real increase in the number of people practicing it; sport enthusiasts looking for pistes far from the beaten track, attracted by the ‘social’ aspect of the discipline – which is a very different approach compared to traditional skiing.
This is a trend that has lead several companies to target their products with the aim of better meeting the needs of the sporty consumer that is becoming increasingly aware (performance, lightweight, protection). In light of this, Vibram has enhanced its range within the ski mountaineering sector by offering a range of soles – that best represent the optimal balance between grip, a lightweight and wear resistance – which are now available on Scarpa, La Sportiva, Scott and, last but not least, Arc’teryx boots (available on the market next winter).
