_dsf5715-hiresAn independent international jury of experts has chosen the winners in the five segments Health & Fitness, Outdoor, Snowsports, Team & Social Sports and Urban from amongst several hundreds of entries. Various trends are emerging in terms of the digital connectivity of sports products, high-tech materials and the sustainability.

Hereby we list three particularly interesting products.

For the Outdoor category, the most natural sleeping bag ever “BIOPOD DOWNWOOL NATURE” from Grüezi is worth mentioning. From the packaging down to the last button, this sleeping bag is made entirely of 100% natural materials. It is made of DownWool, an innovative high-end filling composed of 70% down and 30% wool. The material achieves perfect insulation  and, as such, comparatively little filling material is required.

In the Snowsports category, the SOTA HS hooded jacket from Mammut stood out, boasting revolutionary technology and workmanship: the 4-way super-stretch material made of coated knitted fabric and 3D surface is produced without any seams and is therefore extremely breathable and hard-wearing at the same time. For optimum temperature regulation, the special 3D knitting technology is supplemented with Primaloft insulation in areas of the body which are particularly sensitive to the cold.

The SORDO boot from Berg Outdoor, winner of the Urban category, is a 100% biodegradable boot. It is made of oak leather bionature with Apinat sole. All the materials have been specially coordinated to ensure that, under favourable environmental conditions, the boot fully decomposes within just six months.
