Every year, since 2014, SYNC Performance assembles a yearly group of junior ski racers that we call, creatively, "The SYNC Team". Instead of brainstorming more clever names, we've spent our time running a tough application process. Over 400 athletes apply and only a dozen are chosen based on the values and conduct that SYNC identifies with. Supported over the year with suits, training apparel, protection, and jackets, these athletes not only represent the brand as they travel and race, but provide valuable product feedback and development insights.Read More
Designed in the mountains of Colorado, SYNC Performance launched its 2018-2019 winter collection that offers mountain athletes durable, high-quality, technical apparel and gear that performs on the slopes and also is stylish enough to wear around town.
Founded in 2014, SYNC has its roots in ski racing and driven by athlete input over the past four years continues to expand its collection to make purpose driven equipment beyond the race course and into freeride and backcountry pursuits.
“Our experience working with stretch performance fabrics in ski racing translates well when creating a winter line of all-mountain wear that delivers top performing technical apparel and also looks great,” said Geof Ochs, SYNC Performance Co-Founder and Lead Product Developer. “Our 2018-19 collection continues to respond to the demands of athletes and includes durable, warm and high performing technical apparel that is perfect for hard-charging days on the mountain. We’re also excited about our travel collection, designed by SYNC Athletes with a goal of hassle free gear transport.”
