On Saturday last weekend we organised the third X-PerienceDay 2015 here in Wollerau and met a lot of nice people. Our guests came from Germany and Switzerland to join us for the last possible cross country skiing weekend this spring at the track in Studen. The skiing conditions were perfect there and the sun was shining during the whole event.
Before we went to Studen we introduced our company and the latest developments to our fans. Chief designer Mathias explained in a workshop, how the high-technology X-BIONIC® products are created. After these interesting insights everyone received his personal test set and we started towards Studen.
In Studen every participant prepared for the skiing part and we met at our booth area near the track and Laurent took a group photo there before we started skiing. Every participant went his own speed and some of our guests completed up to 25 kilometers in the estimated test time of 90 minutes. After the skiing part we went back to our office and enjoyed the well-deserved pizza.
The test day was perfect and everyone was happy with the event, we received a lot of positive feedback the days after. The next X-PerienceDay will be in April when we will have the next track cycling session in Grenchen – apply now: X-PerienceDay – 10 April in Grenchen.
X-BIONIC® has become the Official Partner of the leading Spanish Motorcycle Tour specialist Hispania Tours. As part of the cooperation Hispania Tours organizes a fascinating 14-day X-BIONIC®-Tour all the way from Andalusia to the North African Atlas Mountain Region in Morocco and back again to the Iberian peninsula. The longest and most challenging tour in their tour-portfolio with daily trips reaching up to 480 km distance.
We provide all riders with highly functional test equipment to meet all the physical and climatic challenges throughout the trip. The groups travel under very different weather conditions ranging from high mountains to dusty deserts during these adventures…and not to forget the sometimes rough road conditions that need to be overcome!
X-BIONIC® has developed motorcycle specific products for such difficult and long lasting trips under difficult conditions. Tour guide Johannes just touched base with us and shared his experience with X-BIONIC® motorcycle products with us.
On my last tours I wore the X-BIONIC® Energizer and the X-BIONIC Energizer Summerlight® and also different X-SOCKS® for motorcycle riders such as the X-SOCKS Moto Energizer.. Now I have more then 10.000 km of experience under different conditions with the X-BIONIC® products.
With every ridden kilometer I liked my high advanced underwear more and more, and I really do not want to ride anymore without wearing it. Even in rain and cold, or with high temperatures I did feel good protected and comfortable in the X-BIONIC® underwear.
The trip lasts 15 days with start and finish in Malaga/Spain:
“The motorcycle tour takes us from the Mediterranean Sea along the fantastic beaches of the Atlantic coastline to Marrakech. Over the mountain ranges of the ‘High Atlas’, past the canyons of Todra and Dades we encounter Morocco’s largest sand dune region, the Erg Chebbi.
We will spend two days in the sand dunes, just enough time to explore the secrets of the desert. Leaving the desert behind us, we cross the ‘Middle Atlas’ and head via Midelt and Fes to Chefchaouen. In Ceuta we leave the African continent and return to the starting point of our journey.”
Duration: 15 days, 13 days riding
Total distance: Approx. 3,200 km
Tour character: Mountain & panoramic roads (asphalt)
Accommodation: first class 3* to 5* hotels
Highlights: Marrakesh, Sahara Desert, High Atlas, Dades Valley, Fez
“We just came back of the Morocco tour. It was a wonderful experience, the roads, the landscape in one word fantastic! Also the team the organisation very professional. Thanks very much for the nice bike holiday.”

Last weekend the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2015 in Vail-Beaver Creek, Colorado closed with outstanding results for the teams and athletes sponsored by X-BIONIC®. Four national teams were officially equipped with our high-tech wear and were fighting for the titles: Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia and Russia.
All our supported athletes earned top positions in different disciplines with 27 top ten results overall. Especially the downhill World Champion titles of Patrick Kueng (Swiss Ski) and Tina Maze (Sloski). The Slovenian skiing champion also won the Gold Medal at the Alpine combined race and the super-G Silver Medal. The Swiss athletes Lara Gut and Beat Feuz also earned the Bronze Medal in the downhill championships.
All athletes were equipped with the high functional X-BIONIC® Energy Accumulator® EVO. These shirts and pants contain several of our patented technologies, for example the 3D Bionic Sphere® System, Partial Kompression and the Air-Conditioning Channel®. These technologies are working perfectly together and the athletes can show their best performance during the races. Most of the teams use the Energy Accumulator® EVO in the Patriot Edition, this is a version for different countries styled in the colors of their national flags.
We congratulate all teams and athletes to their successful Alpine World Championships 2015!

Last Friday we organized our first track cycling event at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, it was the second X-PerienceDay in 2015. We had lots of applications for this workshop and our guests traveled lots of kilometers to join us there: they came from Switzerland, France and Germany. It was the first time to cycle that way for almost everyone of us and we were excited about the upcoming hours.
After a short introduction we split the group in two parts because we had two session slots at the track. While the first group got their track cycling workshop, the other one got a short product overview from our development department. Before the workshop started we equipped everyone with an X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini Huracán respectively The Trick® biking set and the X-SOCKS® Biking Pro, which were a gift for each participant.
During the track cycling workshop our instructors teached us the basics of this amazing sport step by step. The hardest thing at the beginning was to stay on the track inside the curve because it seamed to be really steep to us newbies. But after some rounds and further instructions every participant was able to ride at the highest point inside the curve. We really enjoyed our rides there and were happy with the instructive workshop. We also want to send a special thanks to our track instructors there, you were really great! The event video will be published soon, stay tuned and follow our blog to see it first!
Our next X-PerienceDay (cross country skiing) takes place at the 14th of March and the next track session at the Velodrome Suisse will be at the 10th of April – you can already apply now for one of the limited places at both events!

The ISPO 2015 was another big success for us: lots of visitors came to X-BIONIC® and were interested in our new products. Our 2015 booth design there was one of a kind and everybody was really amazed about it. A lot of people stood outside and tried to enter the stand and our booth crew had to manage the huge crowd. But this is the “usual” rush when we exhibit on a fair, so we were well prepared this year again.
Two of our new highlights at this years exhibition were the upcoming X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini products and the new APANI® MERINO by X-BIONIC® collection. Below our booth gallery you can find a preview of all our new products we presented in Munich, you will find them soon at our catalogue page too.
In our gallery you can see the best moments from the ISPO and give some little insights to our daily business there. The next big fair for us in Europe will be the Eurobike in Friedrichshafen, we are looking forward to see you there this year!
