The upper hand in the winter with Sunkid plastic matting
Winter athletes engage with dry training during the summer months
Winter athletes such as ski cross specialist Katrin Ofner (Austria) and the Swiss Ski World Cup training group centered around Carlo Janka (Suisse) can now train for the winter during the summer months using Sunkid plastic matting. Since these function entirely without water, the mats can be installed wherever the athletes wish to train… Irrespective of water conduits and/or power connections.
In the case of Katrin Ofner, her training ramp is situated in close proximity to the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg (Austria) and Caro Janka together with colleagues from the Swiss World Cup training group II use the launching pad of the Obersaxen ski club. This ramp was previously provided with carpeting, which, however never functioned optimally.
Now the athletes can practice on the plastic matting regardless of the weather and thus certainly gain the upper hand in the winter when the action starts.
