ISPO Brandnew Story – polychromelab goes Racing

ISPO Brandnew Award Magazine 2015 – polychromelab goes Racing

Polychromelab’s Designer Michele Stinco was nominated for jury member of ISPO Brandnew Award 2015. His expertise is based on long year experience as product designer. This is one reason for making him jury member of Brandnew Award 2015. For polychromelab winning this prestigious award for startups in 2012 already is the other reason.

On this occasion ISPO Brandnew Award Magzine presents polychromelab in a story of success. The magazine was especially convinced by polychromelabs’s effort to engineer innovative products. In collaboration with Schoeffel a reversible winteroverall for Skiteam Austria was designed, that will help ski racers at warmup, training and racecourse inspections.

Schoeffel OESV Warmup DH Suit Women

Polychromelab launches new Schoeffel OESV Warmup DH Suit Women

Polychromelab launches new Schoeffel OESV Warmup DH Suit for Alpine Ski Worldcup Women in Bad Kleinkirchheim. This ski overall by Schoeffel and OESV made off a 3 layer fabric is explained to Austrian ski racers here. Read about what this ski overall made off the unique reversible fabric by polychromelab is capable of and why Schoeffel and OESV have chosen this fabric for their equipment.

Collaboration between Schoeffel, OESV and polychromelab at Wintersports Gear

Polychromelab ltd., Tyrolean startup with site in Innsbruck and high altitude lab on 2610 meters, was able to persuade visionary Toni Giger (head of department for development, research and innovation at OESV) and Schoeffel Sportsgear ltd. Schwabmuenchen (official outfitter of OESV Alpine Racing Ski since 2009) in 2014 for the project “Warmup Downhill Suit” in alpine racing ski. Shared passion for research and sports science had helped this highend project come to life.

OESV’s downhill racing skiers wear worldwide unique Warmup Downhill Suit made off reactive polychromelab 3 layer fabric. Women’s ski team Austria wears Warmup DH Suit at training and at preparation until race’s start.

If racing skiers feel cold, they wear Schoeffel OESV Ski-Overall on black outside and take advantage of infrared and uv radiation to need less clothing to stay warm and to sweat less at warming up. It gets interesting in spring and summer training (Zermatt and domestic glaciers). This concept offers athletes the unique opportunity to stay cool when it’s hot. More features of this ski overall are high elasticity in back and bottom area. The concept of “freedom of movement” is setting some touchstones in overall clothing sector.

New OESV Ski Overall – Niki Hosp Statement

New OESV Ski Overall: Nicole Hosp’s Statement

For the alpine skiing worldcup in Bad Kleinkirchheim OESV ski racers got a new onepiece ski overall, which is designed by a collaboration between Schoeffel and OESV Racing using polychromelab’s fabric. The former Alpine Racing Ski overall worldcup’s winner Nicole Hosp gives her statement in an interview. She wears this new OESV ski overall and tells us about features of her new reversible Warmup Suit.

New Schoeffel OESV Ski Overall Onepiece presented by Niki Hosp from polychromelab on Youtube

This new oesv alpine skiing overall is perfect for ski racers at training and race time. The black side on top warms athletes in rest periods and coldness. At sports and exhaustion or when sun radiations gets higher (especially in spring), one often gets too warm wearing a chunky ski jacket. But the new oesv onepiece overall is reversible to a silver side, which reflects sun radiation and transports warmth from the inside to the outside. This gear concept by Schoeffel helps athletes to sweat less at warmup and need less clothing to stay warm.

This way Niki Hosp is always suited best. Considering the bad weather at Alpine Racing Ski worldcup in Bad Kleinkirchheim the warming ski overall was really required, like you can see on the picture bellow.

Marcel Hirscher likes Schöffel polychromelab Ski Jacket

Marcel Hirscher, three times Alpine Ski Racing overall worldcup’s winner and double world champion in Schladming, Austria 2013, wears a high-tech ski jacket, which was designed by Schoeffel and OESV Racing in collaboration. Passion for science and sport research caused this cooperation using polychromelab’s high-tech reversible fabric for the new Warmup Suit.

This high-tech ski jacket is conceptualized as a reversible overall, that warms on black at warmup or rest and, when reversed, cools on bronze at sports or great sun radiation. Schoeffel and OESV Racing one-piece Warmup Downhill Suit will help skiing athletes to need less gear and to achieve greater successes in Alpine Ski Racing world cup.

In the end of 2014 OESV skiing athletes have worn this reversible ski jacket in world cup the first time. Today we’d like to show you, how Marcel Hirscher celebrates New Year in his new skiing jacket.

How much Marcel Hirscher likes his ski overall, you’ll find out on his facebook page: Marcel-Hirscher/Facebook

Matthias Mayer wears new OESV Ski Overall

OESV and Schoeffel choose polychromelab fabric for downhill Ski Overall

The Austrian Ski Association chooses polychromelab reversible fabric for alpine ski racing ski overall this winter season. At alpine ski racing world cup 2014/15 downhill skiers of Skiteam Austria wear an onepiece overall – named Schoeffel OESV Warmup Suit Men with polychromelab’s fabric – while warming up and training. This ski overall was developed in collaboration with Schöffel and OESV Racing.

This one-piece suit ski overall for men is fabricated out of a special reversible laminate, which is coloured Bronze inside and Black outside. Ski racing athletes will wear this winter overall with the cooling side outside at warmup to prevent overheating. Afterwards, in concetration phase before the start, athletes will wear the warming side outside to prevent undercooling to be well prepared for the race.

Of course the modern design Warmup Suit looks easy on the eyes in interviews and television, like in Matthias Mayer’s case.
