ISPO is considered in the winter sports industry to be a prime spot to exhibit new gear.
With a glaring exception of Amer Sports ( Salomon and Atomic), all major manufacturers are there – and tend to time the official unveiling of their newest & best wares to the show in Munich.
We covered some of them in the first report from ISPO
Let’s look at what else is there.
Madshus brought their latest Redline 2.0 skis – as seen being by Madshus athletes in skiing and biathlon from the beginning of the season, but, technically, going on sale only now. Per Wiik, Madshus Global marketing director, says that the key advantage of newest Redlines is a much broader spectrum of snow/weather conditions than with the previous edition
NB Skate version of Redline 2.0 is featuring visibly more raised tips – early examples looked nearly flat
another Madshus exhibit was their newest Redline boots. Again, already been seen used by top Madshus athletes – albeit a selected few only. Will go on sale for next season. Madshus says they are as light as any competition’s offerings while retaining what many love Norwegian boots for – warmth and comfort
Fischer presented new IFP carbon soled Speedmax boots
Spine Sports brought two very interesting items
Ultimate are their first-ever racing carbon-soled boots. Of interest is not a technology – but a sticker: the Russians firmly promise to keep it “well under 400 euros, retail”
Summer cousin of Ultimate, Skiroll Carbon Pro is a true world’s first: nobody before offered carbon soled rollerski boots
