This is a Spanish company devoted to the conception, design and manufacturing of unique accessories to make sports practice easier for users, especially in the winter sports sector.
They have developed a device, a plastic clip, used to attach ski poles to the chairlift security bar during the chairlift ride. The product has recently been launched to the market (since January 2019)
This accessory is made of a mixture of polymers, it is flexible, very light and it can be adapted to all ski poles in the market regardless of their thickness (from 13mm to 19mm). It is also compatible to any chairlift security bar and does not interfere with the skiing activity.
It allows the user to hook and unhook the ski poles to the chairlifts security bar with a simple gesture made from the handle.
This new product makes a change in the skier’s experience, mainly because it allows the user to be hands-free during the chairlift ride: the skier can take pictures, use mobile phone, adjust ski equipment, clean goggles, check out trail maps, apply sun cream or simply just relax.
Besides, there is an important security issue when carrying ski poles on the chairlift, because of poles falling or skiers tripping over when getting on/off the lift. This accessory prevents those from happening.
The company is looking for distributors for its products in the ski and snow sector in Europe and third countries. These distributors can be any of the following types: wholesalers / retailers of ski equipment, ski rental shops, ski schools at ski resorts.
The wholesalers and retailers are expected to on-sell the product to skiers, whereas rental shops and ski schools will add this product to their poles in order to improve their client’s experience.
