ISPO Munich, the ongoing sports expo with over 2,700 exhibitors from the fields of outdoor, ski, action, performance sports, and sourcing at Germany, from February 5 to 8, 2017, is showing latest skiing fashion trends. All of the skiing fashions for Alpine sports, snowshoeing, winter mountain biking and for walking, is displayed at the exhibition.

New materials including extremely efficient functional materials which stretch in all directions, as well as technological innovations like fully taped seams, intelligent 3D cutting, and laser-cut air vents and almost no need for seams are shown at the expo. The new collections offer all-round protection from excessive heat or cold, wind, weather and fall injuries, while also offering even greater freedom of movement.

This season, freeriders can buy jackets and pants with more freedom of movement thanks to incredibly stretchy materials and slightly wider and longer cuts, some in parka-style with technologies like GORE-TEX C-Knit. Extra reinforcing, with Cordura or Kevlar for instance, on shoulders and pant-leg ends protects against ski edges, crampons and jagged rocks.

Bergans’ new Hemsedal hybrid outfits for active down-hill skiers and free-riders are breathable, cooling, and moisture-wicking at the back and under the arms, warming in the kidney area and chest, and protective at the shoulders. Icebreakers’ new response to the cold is a foldable hybrid jacket no bigger than your palm, made from MerinoLoft with a durable Pertex Microlight outer fabric and Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating.

For skiers focusing on the climb, there are outfits that stay dry and quickly self-dry. Laser-perforated fabric on the back, and clever mesh and net inserts under the arms simultaneously let heat out and fresh air in. Light 3D mesh on the shoulders makes carrying a backpack nice and sweat-free. For endurance skiers, who tackle summits without a daypack, there are concealed, spacious pocket solutions, for your emergency jacket for example.

The new “Life Pocket” from Helly Hansen offers batteries— preserving smartphone and camera batteries with an aerogel developed by PrimaLoft and NASA. From Rossignol Apparel comes the Atelier Course range with Sensor Support Technology. This activates specific areas of the jacket or pants, providing long-lasting support for the muscles through compression; this is made possible by an anatomical construction, combined with an ultra-stretch fabric around the core and thigh areas.

Nearly all manufacturers already offer fluorocarbon-free DWRs. In their Shuksan line geared toward Alpine sports, Vaude focus on robust, elastic outer fabric that is made of up to 85 per cent recycled polyamide thus helping to conserve fossil raw materials. Fabrics, like ReflectMesh by Berghaus, whose fibres are coated with aluminium and reflect heat, are being shown at ISPO Munich.

With ProKnit Technology the free-riding label Picture Organic Clothing is launching the first knitted ski and snowboarding jacket in the world, with different density zones providing strategic body mapping. (GK)
