SCOTT - CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES FOR WINTER SPORTS
SCOTT is a traditional company that has been around since 1958. Since then, the company has dedicated itself intensively to the further development of its products and is always breaking new ground. Thus, numerous innovations and new technologies have been introduced to the market over the decades. The brand is named after Ed Scott, a ski racer and engineer from Sun Valley in Idaho. He revolutionised skiing 60 years ago by creating a ski pole that was made of aluminium and had a narrow taper. After a successful detour into the motocross market, the company dedicated itself to the creation of a winter sports line for functional clothing in 1997. Skis and protective helmets soon complemented the range. In 2004, Scott won the European Ski Award with one of its helmets.
SCOTT PRODUCTS FOR YOUR SAFETY
The product range of the SCOTT brand is very diverse. In addition to ski trousers and ski jackets, the company also produces SCOTT touring ski boots and ski goggles. Ski bags and bindings are available as well as backpacks. Many models are special avalanche backpacks with airbags. In the event of an accident, such a backpack may even save the life of the skier, snowboarder or ski tourer. Carrying such a backpack is recommended off the prepared slopes. Equally indispensable for your safety is the SCOTT helmet. It protects your head in the event of an impact on an icy slope, a slalom pole or a stone.
HIGH WEARING COMFORT ON THE SLOPES
The SCOTT brand is known for its fashionable skiwear. You will find jackets and trousers in many different colours, with strong tones as well as subtle nuances. Thanks to this variety of colours, it is easy to combine the garments harmoniously with each other. The insulation and down jackets convince with a timelessly attractive step design that can still be seen after many years. In general, the ski fashion is designed to be simple but colourful. Stretchy cuffs, adjustable, helmet-compatible hoods and other refinements significantly increase comfort. Also practical are the pockets, which are located in different places on the individual garments and offer varying amounts of storage space.
MATERIALS FOR ALL WEATHERS
SCOTT uses different substances in the production of its functional ski clothing. Natural raw materials are used in some models. For example, the popular down jackets, a classic of ski fashion, are filled with fine down feathers from geese or ducks. Most jacket and trouser models, however, are largely made of polyester. This is a very universally applicable fabric. Polyester is a synthetic fibre that does not absorb moisture itself and therefore dries quickly in the air. In addition, the synthetic fibre hardly wrinkles and certain weaving processes increase its functionality. The result is a breathable fabric that effectively supports moisture transport.
OTHER CLEVER DETAILS
SCOTT ski clothing is functional textiles with various extras. For example, many jackets have a system that firmly connects the jacket to the pants. This means that snow has no chance of getting inside. Furthermore, the seams are often fully taped. This also applies to most of the pockets. The hem and hood of some models can be adjusted with a simple push of a button. There is an anti-scratch inner protector and there is a full-length wind flap inside the jacket. Underarm vents and knitted cuffs with thumb openings are among the other possible details.
BEAUTIFUL AND USEFUL THINGS FOR THE SLOPES
Ski accessories make winter sports more pleasant and sometimes they are even indispensable. Just as important is suitable clothing that keeps you warm and dry in ice and snow. SCOTT offers both: helmets, backpacks, ski bags, ski goggles and of course trousers and jackets in many different colours. Since the range is updated from time to time, it's worth checking out Keller Sports from time to time.
