In the past, winter sport athletes have been greatly limited by the apparel they had to compete and train in. The innovations that had occurred in many other sportswear markets had not yet been applied to ski apparel, and athletes were suffering as a result.
Schure Sports, the parent company of Karbon, sought to change just that when the founded the brand in 1997. As a family-owned business based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, they wished to interact directly with the athletes that would be wearing their ski apparel and understand exactly what they required to perform at their very best.
This direct interaction has allowed them to innovate in a specific and measured way. Karbon ski jackets, ski pants, thermal layering options and snow accessories are designed with the wearer in mind, to ensure that, regardless of capability or confidence, they are kept comfortable, warm and dry. This is captured by their ethos: #nolimits.
From the advanced stretch fabrics widely utilised in their snow jackets and snow pants to maximise range of motions to garment-specific insulation design that provides maximum warmth without the addition of excessive weight, Karbon have been at the forefront of wearable innovation. The premier example of Karbon’s unyielding dedication of tailoring their products to the demands of the wearer is their Karbonite waterproofing technology. Integrated into a wide range of their outerwear garments, Karbon tailors the waterproofness and breathability of each garment dependant on its anticipated use.
Choosing this Canadian powerhouse of design and innovation for your ski apparel needs is not a chore, it is a pleasure.
