This is the biggest event of the season for Nordic skiing and, as a global leader in winter sports, UYN couldn’t miss it. The World Biathlon championships are taking place from 12 to 23 February in Antholz (or Anterselva, north eastern Italy). This international event involves 350 athletes from 40 countries and attracts 165,000 spectators, while over 130 million are glued to their TVs.
UYN is proud to be supporting the Italian and Slovak National teams, with our technical base layers and socks. Athletes of such calibre as Lisa Vittozzi, Dorothea Wierer, Lukas Hofer, Dominik Windisch and Paulina Fialkova will be able to count on the best base layer technology available as they take up the challenge to win the world champion medals.
Last year, our #UYNners finished the Östersund (Sweden) World Championships with some six medals, three of which were gold. In Antholz, there will be 12 medals up for grabs over 11 days of competition. We’re ready for our exciting new challenges!
UYN biathlon products
For all biathletes - World Champions and simple enthusiasts alike - UYN has developed the Evolutyon and Motyon base layers: two different levels of thickness for top performance in any weather conditions.
Our base layers stand out from the rest by providing total freedom of movement and strategic support for the muscles: these are vital functional properties for biathletes, on land and in the firing range.
We’ve even thought of comfort for athletes’ feet - the basis of all success. We produced the Ski cross Country socks, which use Natex and Merino wool and have structures that absorb impact, as well as intelligent thermal regulation systems that make them perfect for prolonged activities.
