What is Alpine Sport Science?
Alpine Sport Science at Alpine Proof Outdoor Lab
The study of apine sport science incorporates the interaction of man, apparel and weather in mountain regions. Here at Schönjoch 2436 the Centre for Ski and Alpine Technology Innsbruck, Textile Physics Dornbirn and polychromelab ltd. are working on scientific methods to understand and analyse weak points of outdoor apparel, improving future standards.
At the moment we fix outdoor jackets on test dummies to simulate an aging process initiated through alpine weather. These spinning cycles are for testing how textiles are handling high work load.
This is alpine sport science: After several months these outdoor jackets have experienced a lot. But they haven’t suffered in vain, because they’ll pass through their knowledge to the next generation. This is what polychromelab is doing for the last three years with their own outdoor jackets. You’ll find the result in our online shop here: outdoor jackets online shop.
