Posted:

HAVERILL, MA – Continuing a tradition of World Championship team outfitting, Swix revealed the 2019, USST World Championship race uniform to be worn next week in Seefeld, Austria. “This is a special team deserving a special race suit.” described Kelley Roche, softgoods manager at Swix Sport USA.

The Swix suit, the performance companion to the team’s L.L. Bean sponsored uniforms, feature fewer seams and performance four-way stretch.

The American focused look by designer Garen Reidel highlights the team clearly against competitors. “We set out to create a race suit design for the Seefeld Nordic World Championships that is graphic, bold and uniquely American… a design that sets our world-class athletes apart from the competition and a design that allows viewers back home to easily spot our team from within the pack and atop the podium,” Reidel explained.

The suits debuted under sunny skies in the preview days of the World Championship events. Featuring bold stars and sharp American colors, the focus was on visibility in mass start events and an iconic look.

“Our new competition suits have a uniquely American design which includes elements requested by the athletes, as well as the performance functionality for us to win medals here in Seefeld,” described USST, head coach, Chris Grover.

Racing begins on February 20th. For more information, log onto https://www.fis-ski.com/.
