ALPINA IS THE CHOICE
... That's the reason ALPINA's freeskiing team grows year over year, as does the appreciation of our brand in this sport. It's all down to our ultra-modern styles, colours and designs, plus of course the reliably high quality of ALPINA products, which is of crucial importance to performance at this high level. In fact, with ALPINA the athletes can even have a direct input into product functions and further development. We recognise the importance of being close to the customer and responding to their needs. The fact that short distances are involved helps to make this possible: ALPINA products are developed and manufactured at the company's own production sites in Germany as well and it is easy to get feedback from the athletes and incorporate it quickly into product development.
In this way our athletes can accompany the development process from the initial sketches through to mock-ups cast in resin and the finished products, providing useful input along the way.
Ski helmets have to comply with the EN-1077 safety standard. Athletes can observe the rigorous tests the helmets undergo at the company's own testing station, and get a vivid impression of the forces they have to be able to withstand. As they take in what they are seeing their faces are filled with fascination and their confidence in our products is reinforced. Who could be in a better position to provide feedback than someone with this kind of background?
