ALPINA - SAFETY PIONEER
When it comes to highly innovative equipment in leisure and professional sports, there is no way around the name Alpina. Alpina has always been a pioneer in the field of functional safety accessories with its ski and bike goggles and ski helmets. The company attaches particular importance to quality and regularly shines with top technological performance - safety "made in Bavaria".
Once a startup from Sulzemoos in Bavaria, courageous and enthusiastic, the sporting goods manufacturer conquers the whole world with one idea. Alpina was already founded in 1980, but at that time it was still rather unspectacular in a catalogue and a short time later presented at the ISPO sports fair in Munich. The collection? Manageable. Not, however, the belief in one's own products and ideas. Driven by this, Alpina developed the first product of world standing within just two years: the Turbo ski goggles. A real classic for a clear view on the piste - and still is today. The same applies to Alpina Ski, launched on the market in 1985.
NEUREUTHER, HOLE, SHIELD - ATHLETES FOR ALPINA HELMETS
Throughout the years, Alpina has always listened to the best athletes in their respective fields and has always worked closely with them to find the best product. At the Olympic Games, Felix Neureuther, Felix Loch and Marlies Schild, among others, competed with Alpina's safety-relevant products. Everything, so that in the end not only the athletes but also you and other athletes can benefit from it. As one of five brands, Alpina belongs to the Uvex Group. Their task is clearly defined: Protecting People. Innovative work that protects you during your adventures in the snow and on the bike.

BE VISIBLE - CAMPAIGN FOR MORE SECURITY
With the #bevisible campaign, Alpina wants to draw attention to the dangers of being poorly visible on the road. Alpina has developed Be-Visible helmets especially for this purpose. Keeped in bright yellow, the bike helmets also increase your visibility on the bike during the day - whether on the way to work, to sports or to the café. They also have reflectors and a battery-powered LED taillight for even greater road safety.
MORE INSIGHT FOR YOU: SKI-
Another example of Alpina's innovative products? Alpina has developed the Quattroflex technology for its ski goggles. It significantly reduces the blue component of visible light and increases contrasts in snow even in poor visibility. The result: more safety. Reflections and reflections become less, the view better and you can react faster to a dangerous situation.
