The big freeze is over
Hands and feet are the two most valuable areas when it comes to skiing. The warmth and comfort of our hands can make or break a day on the mountain. Whether it’s your hands, your friends’, partner’s or child’s, when they freeze or get wet the day is basically done.
Ever since Karl Reusch produced his first gloves in the attic of his home in 1934, the brand Reusch has grown to be recognised as the market leader manufacturing gloves of supreme quality which offer protection from the harsh alpine elements. Their commitment to function and design has helped them win approximately 75% of all available medals in Olympic and World Cup history. An astonishing statistic and remarkable achievement, built on the back of ensuring the Reusch glove meets the highest standards of fit, quality, function and protection.
The Australian range of gloves has been specially developed to cope with the wet snow conditions of the southern hemisphere. It’s a long awaited return to the local market, but the wait has been worth it. The inside story literally lives in the glove membranes. Reusch exclusively has both R-TEX® and GORE-TEX® membranes, these are the best two membranes in the business which provide unequalled levels of water proofing when in combination with glove design and construction.
Reusch – a brand you can trust to deliver.
For more than 20 years, the Polartec APEX Awards have elected some of the industry’s most innovative products on the market. This is the first time in the history of the awards that the jury has selected a winter sports glove as an Award winner!
Inspired by the breath-taking descents of Jérémie Heitz, the awarded high-quality freeride glove was developed in close cooperation between Reusch and the 28 year old Swiss skier, who is constantly pushing the limits of freeskiing. As a tight-fitting glove with short cuff, robust goatskin leather on palm and super flexible softshell on the back, Jérémie’s choice offers outstanding tactility and great grip to hold the ice axes and ski poles. A high-quality Polartec Alpha insulation provides optimum heat retention and warmth regulation in combination with great breathability, outstanding moisture management and simply a super soft and comfortable touch.
