Off road season: Cyclocross with Hanka

If you are a road biker, you know that it is hard to ride from autumn to spring during the winter season. Cyclocross could be the right alternative kind of sport for you: it is short, more intensive and makes a lot of fun. We had a photo shooting with Hanka last week and will bring you a small off road guide with some tipps for that sport. The pro athlete and many times world and national champion will give you some tipps for your start to the cyclocross sport. If you missed it, here is our making of collage form last week at Facebook: Beitrag von X-BIONIC®. ...

An East Side Story

This autumn in October the “Swiss Tourism Week” was held in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. The Swiss organisation (www.myswitzerland.com) promoted their country as a holiday destination for the Russian people, they also talked about travel destinations for the helvetic inhabitants in the big country at the east side of Europe. There were also two fashion shows held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Moscow and the first class hotel Talion in Saint Petersburg. Swiss ski instructors showed clothing from their country and demonstrated Swissness during the show. And what could be a better example for the Swiss perfection and dedication for high performance? You are right – X-BIONIC®! The models showed a small range of our products and the people were thrilled about it, especially our new Patriot range and it´s Russian version. As you can see at the photos, everybody had big pleasure during these events. Check out the photos of ...

Mahalo Timo, Horst & Jan!

The IRONMAN World Championships on Hawaii are history: The POWER HORSE Triathlon Team showed a great performance and verified it´s leading role in the triathlon scene. Timo Bracht achieved another top ten result and finished on the 9th rank. The Hawaii “newbie” Horst Reichel also had a great start but a hard fight with the heat during his running part. The third athlete of the team, Jan Raphael, dropped out on the final marathon due to health problems. The new champion Frederik van Lierde (Belgium) showed the best performance in the heat of Big Island and finished the race in 08:12:29 hours.

End of season TeamRide

The last TeamRide of 2013 is over: a small group of X-BIONIC® fans met at our headquarter in Wollerau. After a short meet and great and an introduction to our new products every TeamRider got his own The Trick® test set. The weather conditions became better and better during the ride. Ahead of the group was Swissman and Norseman winner Markus Stierli who gave us some insights to his great races and the training for these two outstanding Ironmans. After 30 kilometers we had a short break for a hot coffee/tea/chocolate. The tour lead over a few small mountains and we finally crossed the Seedamm near Rapperswill over the Lake of Zurich. We arrived again in Wollerau and had a final snack. The next ride will be in Spring 2014, but perhaps we will organise a Winter edition. See you next year!   Join our Club at Strava → http://www.strava.com/clubs/x-bionic-teamride   ...

On top of the world: Noel Hanna

X-BIONIC® athlete and adventurer Noel Hanna climbed at the Mount Everest in April this year and was on a special mission: He guided the Russian base jumper and Red Bull athlete Valery Rozov to the north side of the mountain up to 7,220m where he started his highest jump ever. He completed this anniversary jump exactly 60 years after the first ascent at the Mount Everest by Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay. Rozov mentioned after completing the jump: “Only when I got back home did I see how hard it was for me both physically and psychologically” (source: www.redbull.com). Their ascent started from China on the famous north route. Finally Rozov jumped on May 5th at exactly at 2:30 pm, when the temperatures was at 18 degrees below zero. The rarefied high altitude air was extremely precarious for him. Noel mentioned after this unique adventure about his X-BIONIC® equipment:  “Having the best clothing gives ...
