OutDoor 2012 & ion-mask™ wins Industry Award

Last week we attended the 2012 OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany which if you are not familar, is one of the leading outdoor tradeshows in the world. We first attended the show in 2011 highlighting the benefits of our ion-mask technology and you see how we got on then, here.

The event in 2012, however was made special for us as it was announced on the opening day of the show that Trekmates and P2i had won the OutDoor Industry Award 2012 for the PrimaLoft© Mountain Lite Mitt glove featuring ion-mask™:

P2i Visit the British Cycling Velodrome

You may have seen the recent announcement that we have teamed up with UK Sport to coat cycling and sailing equipment with our water repellent nano-coating technology. If not you can read more here.

As you can imagine, we are very excited about this partnership and were delighted that a few P2i staff were given the opportunity to visit the British Cycling Velodrome in Manchester! It was a great honour to experience first-hand what it's like to cycle around a track that athletes have trained and faught valiantly to win events on.

The day which lasted around three hours, began with a tour of the track, lessons on how to use single gear bikes (which also had no brakes) and a few practice runs around the track, culminating in a "competitive" time trial race.

The day was a great experience and really well organized by UK Sport and British Cycling. And although initially nervous, it turns out overtaking and experiencing up to 42 degree angles at top speeds are great fun and the stand out highlight for the team. We definitely have a new found appreciation for the skill, strength and stamina it takes to become a professional in this sport.

Again we are grateful to UK Sport and British Cycling and you can see some of the images from our time at the Velodrome below:
