Awards: uvex sports group


reddot design award

The uvex sports "award list" is getting longer and longer! We won the internationally renowned reddot design award twice this year:

For the high-end performance ski helmet uvex invictus and for the most sustainable (and coolest) ski goggles in the world: the uvex downhill 2100 CV planet.

The uvex downhill 2100 CV planet ski goggles:
Protect what you love.

The uvex downhill 2100 CV planet is the perfect match of technology, sustainability and design. Ultimate contrast enhancement through uvex colourvision® technology, 400% improved anti-fog effect through uvex supravision®, unbelievably casual design and top colours as well as consistently sustainable materials: from the lens (this is unique and only available from uvex!) to the goggle strap.

uvex invictus ski helmet:
Made for Pros

The uvex invictus is the high-tech ski helmet and stands for uncompromising performance. The FIS-certified race helmet impresses with extremely impact-resistant and super-light uvex +technology and optimised aerodynamics and meets FIS requirements. The World Cup elite trust the ultra-light uvex invictus and it convinces with its sporty-aerodynamic design, perfect fit and innovative safety features such as emergency cheek pads, a shock-absorbing inner shell and a chin bar with release function.

The award ceremony will take place in June - the products will be available in stores from autumn.
If you want to look "excellent" on the slopes, you can't do without these products!
