The versatile mountain sports glove Arktis by ESKA is the ISPO gold award winner in the outdoor category. Functionality, high quality and design impressed the jury.
Within seconds, the Arktis fingered glove can be transformed into a warm mitten with the magnetically fixed leather fist cap. Touchscreens can be operated perfectly and the SEQRID personal protection system attached to the Arktis can save lives in an emergency. "We are thrilled with the threefold functionality of the product. The high-quality and functional design was very impressive", explained the jury, justifying why they chose to award the ISPO gold award to the Arktis.
Relief in the high mountains
The special workmanship of the GORE-TEX inserts inside the Arktis' inner glove maximises tactility and grip. Screw carbines, ski touring skins or ski boot bindings can thus be easily operated, which makes life in the high mountain regions much easier.
30% more heat
In the outside of the glove, the new PrimaLoft Cross Core technology is used. The fibres are encased in aerogel powder, which gives 30% more heat at the same weight. The cuff can be opened by a waterproof zipper, extended and fixed with the cord stopper. As a result, you are well protected even in extreme weather conditions.
Gold at the first appearance
"We participated in the ISPO award for the first time and immediately won the gold with the Arktis. This will open up further doors for selected mountain sports retailers," says pleased ESKA representative Heidi Pürstinger.
