The best of the best make a successful debut and UYN® has done just that. This Italian brand has just completed its first season accompanying the champions of the Alpine Skiing World Cup finals, which took place from 13th to 17th March in Soldeu (Andorra). And a successful season it was: the UYNners secured 48 victories in 73 races. They dominated the top positions in the men’s overall standings, with the incredible Marcel Hirscher (Austria) in first place, followed by Frenchman Alexis Pinturault and Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen.
UYN, A REVOLUTION IN THE NAME OF EXCELLENCE
The secret to this success goes by the name of NATYON, a technical baselayer range created in collaboration with the top national teams. The seven UYNning teams are Austria, Italy, France, Germany, Norway, Russia and Slovenia. UYN provided the athletes from all those countries with the best technology in the field of sportswear, bolstered by the years of experience of the company behind this new brand - Trerè Innovation, based in Asola (Mantua Province). UYN is a revolution, but one with its roots planted firmly in a long history of excellence: such a blend is perfect for giving the champions a decisive advantage over their adversaries.
NATYON: HIGH-TECH BASELAYERS TO ACHIEVE VICTORY
From Sölden to Soldeu, across the American continent and the epic alpine slopes, UYN’s Natyon baselayer has allowed athletes to express their full potential - even in the most challenging conditions. On account of its exclusive HYPERMOTION technology, it is seamless around the shoulders, which provides total freedom of movement and supports posture while skiing. The 3D formation of the fabric structure rapidly eliminates sweat, while the insulating HEATMEMORY system prevents the body from getting cold in freezing climates. Targeted compression and the special RESIFIT support around the most exposed areas - such as elbows and knees - provide increased comfort during any race. All this adds up to increased performance, from the start line to the finish line.
WORLD CUP HIGHLIGHTS
The standings in this incredible season showed 91 medals won in the men’s field (of a possible 116) with 34 victories in 38 stages and eight UYN athletes in the overall top 10. UYNer Marcel Hirscher was confirmed as the world number one, winning his eighth crystal trophy in a row, as well as the specialist cups for slalom and giant slalom. Italian Dominik Paris brought home a victory for UYN in the super-G and Alexis Pinturault in the combined.
In the women’s event, Nicole Schmidhofer was the one to shine, crowned queen of the downhill and placing second in the super-G. Frenchwoman Tessa Worley placed third in the giant slalom. The women’s season closed on 14 wins and 47 medals, which also involved successes from Italians Federica Brignone and Sofia Goggia, Slovenian Ilka Stuhec, German Viktoria Rebensburg and Austrians Ramona Siebenhofer, Stephanie Venier and Mirjam Puchner.
