SCOTT Sports Wins 4 x ISPO Awards
SCOTT Sports has been awarded ISPO Awards for four new products in the 22-23 Wintersports collection: the Blend Plus helmet, Patrol E2 Backpack, Shield Recycled Goggle and Superguide 95 LT Ski. The forthcoming 22-23 Wintersports Collection will be SCOTT’s most progressive yet, with sustainability at its core. “Innovation, Technology, Design are SCOTT’s core values and this vision runs through everything we do. We’re delighted our new products have been recognized by ISPO, as we look to set a new standard in sustainable and innovative product development,” said Reto Aeschbacher, CMO at SCOTT.
Notable award winners are the first-of-its-kind Shield Recycled Goggle and Superguide 95 LT Ski, both part of SCOTT’s Resource collection, a group of products that meet a strict internal sustainability criteria, without compromising on performance. “At SCOTT we are skiers, bikers, runners, and we love our outdoor playground. Our philosophy is to respect it and strive towards being environmentally responsible when it comes to our products,” comments CSR Manager Andrew Goodman.
The Shield Recycled Goggle represents an initial step into the world of circular products for SCOTT. The goggle, based on the iconic Shield style, has a 100% recycled TPU frame, made from old SCOTT goggles that had lived beyond their useful life, and a 100% recycled Nylon strap from Fulgar. The Shield Recycled is a proof of concept that demonstrates the future possibilities for circular product development at SCOTT.
The new Superguide LT 95 Ski is the first eco ski from SCOTT, that combines sustainable materials and exceptional attention to detail to ensure the most responsibly produced skis to date. A certified wood core and flax fibre construction is combined with a 50% bio-based topsheet, 50% recycled base, partially recycled edges and reduced graphic inks. The materials have been carefully selected to not only be responsible, but to ensure an exceptional ski touring experience.
Both products are produced in the EU to further minimize their environmental impact. “We are very proud to present these products, which are made using local and eco-friendly materials without compromising on amazing performance,” comments Wintersports Hardgoods Product Manager Franz Marsan.
In addition, ISPO Awards for the Patrol E2 Backpack and Blend Plus Helmet recognize SCOTT’s dedication to providing the safest, most progressive products to skiers across the whole mountain. “At SCOTT, our task is to provide the best tool for the job and deliver leading technology to our users – whether it’s a ski patroller, freeride athlete, ski tourer, or all-mountain skier,” said Sandra Schoop, Equipment Product Manager.
The Patrol E2 Backpack is SCOTT’s ultimate freeskiing avalanche backpack. Evolving from the iconic Patrol E1, the Patrol E2 Backpack is the first on the market to incorporate the new Alpride E2 Avalanche system – the lightest electronic system to date and with state-of-the-art supercapacitor technology. The new Patrol backpack has been redesigned with Cordura ripstop fabric, improved durability, and optimized fixation and storage solutions for backcountry equipment, making it SCOTT’s most reliable avalanche backpack to date.
The all-new Blend Plus Helmet is a first-of-its-kind product for SCOTT and sets a new benchmark for integrated helmets. The helmet features a patented Magnetic Visor Mechanism and cylindrical lens, with Amplifier contrast enhancing technology, an unrivalled field of vision and over-the-glasses compatibility, combined with a MIPs helmet that boasts active ventilation and 360 Pure Sound technology. The Blend Plus Helmet combines SCOTT’s industry-leading expertise in both goggle and helmet development with a modern design to create a visor helmet that’s unlike anything on the market.
The ISPO Awards are renowned honors from one of the industry’s leading international sports platforms. Judged by an independent jury, the awards recognize the most innovative products across the industry. Reto Aeschbacher, CMO at SCOTT Sports comments, “SCOTT and ISPO have worked together for many years, and we are delighted to once again have our products recognized by the coveted ISPO Awards. We see huge importance in the ISPO platform and the value it brings to our retailers, media partners and consumers when presenting our brand.”
