Research & Development

Teams / Makers / Research & Development

We constantly concern ourselves with the athletes’ needs. Not only in the office but everywhere we are. Our research and development teams absorb new trends and demands like caffeine. We investigate and we analyze: Which textile do running shirts for summer have to be made of, which ones for winter? 

Where do we even go running nowadays? Questions like these make our team a hub for the future. If you call yourself an observer and a creator, you are welcome to collaborate. Here, you will be in the position for building a broad foundation to make innovations happen.
