Based on the view that mountains are playgrounds offering the perfect terrain for training, Salewa has developed their new Mountain Training collection. The functional articles combine durability, weatherproof protection, breathability and comfort in order to help you improve your performance.

To mark the launch of the collection, Salewa and its athletes filmed four highly informative videos to give everybody a taste of what it is like to train on, around and for mountains. Here are the first two episodes. Come back to this page tomorrow to watch the next two.

In the first episode, “Control”, freerider and Salewa athlete Björn Heregger explains why he trains and what mountain sports mean to him.

The second episode, “Speed”, is about two Salewa athletes and paragliders, Aaron Durogati and Paul Guschlbauer, who have stepped up to the challenge and are taking part in the most difficult paragliding competition in the world in the Red Bull X-Alps. Paul Guschlbauer came third in the 2015 race and he explains what it takes, why he needs to be 100% fit and why he, like Aaron Durogati, wants to compete again this year.

Tomorrow you can see the next two episodes.
