"From my point of view, the evolution of a sport goes hand in hand with the development of the equipment that is used", said the super athlete on the day that his entry into the SCARPA family was announced. "This new collaboration is a natural choice for me: SCARPA can boast a long experience in the development of new products and I share their approach based on research and innovation, with great attention to sustainability and performance. I'm really enthusiastic about starting this partnership and giving my contribution to developing the company's new projects".
His relationship with the Veneto-based company will begin immediately. In fact, SCARPA will present the 4-Quattro boots at the Outdoor Retailer, the most important world trade fair in the sector scheduled to take place from 26th to 28th January in Denver, where it will host an inaugural launch event with Bode Miller and other ambassadors on 25th January. The new product will then be available on the market from autumn 2022.
This is another reason why the company is proud of the agreement reached. "Bode Miller has made sports history and is considered a true skiing legend", underlines SCARPA president Sandro Parisotto. "Today SCARPA is an international reality, world leader in the ski mountaineering sector, which bases its roots on certain cornerstones such as innovation, quality and respect for the environment: being represented in the world by the strongest downhill skier of all time is an important step for us and we are convinced that together we can make a truly significant step forward, starting with the launch of the 4-Quattro, which marks SCARPA's debut in the hybrid boot market. It is a product characterised by extreme lightness, high performance and suitable to satisfy the needs of the most demanding skiers".
