Freeriding starts with the first layer of clothing since this is what determines whether the overall clothing system will work as expected. Ortovox put their trust in merino wool in every layer. This natural fibre is great for every season of the year, but it is simply fantastic for winter sports when the body temperature fluctuates between heavy perspiration during periods of activity and rapid cooling when at rest. Merino wool has the unique ability to absorb large volumes of moisture without making you feel wet. It transports moisture into the fibre core and then slowly releases it. At the same time, it helps to regulate temperature and prevents unpleasant odours.
Ortovox uses 100% Merino Wool for their Rock’n’Wool collection. These products have a material weight of 185 g/m², making them highly versatile from the beginning of winter to the end, even when the temperatures take a dip. From short sleeves to long sleeves and from boxers to short pants, this collection is characterized largely by colourful designs, fun features, loose cuts, and - of course - the highly functional merino fibre.
Ortovox blev vakt til live med opfindelsen af den første transceiver med dobbel-frekvens for at hjælpe med at finde lavineofre. Med deres passion for at holde skiløbere og snowboardere sikre, er Ortovox vokset til at være en af verdens største producenter af lavine sikkerhedsudstyr. I 1995 tilføjede de merino undertøj til deres udvalg og vi har været fanget lige siden!
