Mountain clothing and equipment - The winners

FIRST PLACE

Folding Ski Ibex-Tactix

Motivations behind the award

Ibex Tactix is the first folding ski ever to be produced. It is an innovative and useful idea that answers to the needs of sportspeople and enthusiasts alike: from mountaineers who need to limit the bulk of the equipment in their rucksacks to those intent on more sustainable skiing, preferring to travel by bus or plane rather than by car. A simple, easy to use mechanism (taking less than 20 seconds) that has revolutionised the prospect of ski portability.

A great advantage of B-Cure is that the device can be used in total autonomy, in your own home, without the need for recourse to specialist centres. Moreover, it is suitable for all ages and there is no risk of overdose.
