To celebrate the renewal of its partnership with the Freeride World Tour for the fourth consecutive year in 2021, Alpina is proud to reveal an exclusive AlpinerX Smart Outdoors limited edition made of recycled material from Alpina’s advertising banner from the Freeride World Tour 2020.
Last November, Alpina renewed its partnership with the Freeride World Tour in 2021 for the fourth year running. Sharing the same values and passion for adventure, Alpina and the Freeride World Tour have been working together since 2018, helping freeride athletes achieve their goal of mastering some of the most challenging lines the mountains have to offer.
As the official partner of the Freeride World Tour, Alpina is also directly supporting three Freeride World Tour competitors, namely the French athletes Juliette Willmann and Victor De Le Rue and the Italian Markus Eder. This year, the competition started in Andorra from February 19th to 26th, before continuing in Fieberbrunn, Austria and in Verbier, Switzerland.
Verbier Xtreme 25 Years Anniversary
The Verbier Xtreme has been at the peak of competitive skiing and snowboarding over the past 25 years. If the world hadn’t been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the year 2020 would have celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the event – which was cancelled unfortunately. Therefore, the freeride community will be celebrating this milestone in 2021, from March 20th to 28th.
Last year, to mark the occasion, Alpina had developed a safety package in collaboration with the Freeride World Tour, including a Recco Helmet Rescue Reflector and a Black Diamond Guide BT Avalanche Beacon to accompany the AlpinerX Freeride World Tour 2020 limited edition series of 25 pieces. Each of these timepieces is to be delivered in a dedicated gift box featuring a commemorative plate bearing the 25th Anniversary Xtreme Verbier logo and the limited-edition number X/25 inscription. What’s more, each watch is engraved with the limited-edition number from 1 to 25.
And the good news is: out of these 25 pieces, a few of them are still available for the freeride and watch collectors’ greatest pleasure!
