As a leading manufacturer of all types of functional sportswear, the Swiss company ODLO International AG has for many years been synonymous with high-quality clothing and accessories which are optimally attuned to their respective sports activities. The company is the European market leader in the functional sports underwear segment.

With its outdoor, running, bike, x-country, tec-shirts and kids collections, ODLO has repeatedly and successfully set the trends. From the very outset in addition to innovative functionality and high wearing comfort, the product development of the technology leader has always viewed the best possible skin-friendly properties of the textiles as extremely important. Nearly all ODLO products have complied with the human/ecology requirements of the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 since 1993.

Optimum body climate - optimum performance

For over 60 years ODLO has consistently focused on the bodies of sportsmen and women and has conducted large amounts of pioneering work on optimally designed functional clothing. The company's benchmark in the development of its sportswear is the feeling of well-being and comfort of the wearer at skin level.

The result of this approach is the three-layering principle developed by ODLO and which is used today in all types of functional textiles for sport and outdoor use. “Sportswear has to be just right from the skin outwards” explains company spokeswoman Sabine Klapper, “and that is why we develop our clothing from the inside to the outside”. ODLO offers layer upon layer of specific functionality.

The first and lowest layer regulates the moisture content, the second optimises the body climate and the third protects against weather influences of wind, rain and snow." All ODLO collections are based on this three-layering principle in order to create an optimum body temperature.

Collections with a system

ODLO's' most important product segment is sports and functional underwear. The company has also specialised in a comprehensive all-year range for the outdoor, running, bike and cross-country skiing sectors with products for both women and men. The company rounds off its product offerings with a special product range for children and an accessories range to match the skin collections.

All the collections and products are based on three concepts: The ODLO three-layering principle, the “Zoned Function”, i.e. the use of functional materials where the athletes need them and the “Free-move” cutting technology for unlimited freedom of movement. According to Sabine Klapper the needs of the athletes are always centre-stage: “Our products ensure that the sportsmen and women can concentrate fully on their sports performance.”

We are there to support all those active people who are inspired to move around in nature with our high-quality collections which have been fine-tuned for their functionality and wearing comfort." In its new product and technology development ODLO only uses synthetic fibres which have functional properties that are outstandingly well-suited for regulating moisture and heat and which at the same time are pleasant and comfortable to wear.
