ODLO x Burton Snowboards launch exciting new design collaboration

The Slokar Performance Wool 200 base layer combines ODLO’s seamless engineering expertise with the signature style of Burton’s iconic [ak] range.

(Monday 23rd October, Hünenberg, CH) – ODLO x Burton Snowboards are thrilled to announce the joint launch of their first design collaboration – The Slokar Performance Wool 200 base layer. Releasing tomorrow, October 24th, this exciting new partnership brings together the quality and performance of Swiss base layer experts, ODLO, with the innovative design spirit of legendary snowsports brand, Burton.

“We’re thrilled to have collaborated with Burton to launch the Slokar, the first snowboard-specific base layer in ODLO’s history.” said Kilian Breuer, ODLO product director. “By combining our distinct strengths - ODLO’s renowned seamless knitting expertise and Burton’s iconic design attitude - we’ve been able to create exceptional layers that deliver against snowboarding’s specific performance needs and inherent style. We can’t wait for a wider audience of winter enthusiasts to be able to experience ODLO’s craftmanship for the first time.”

With the brands united in their shared passion for snowsports and desire to elevate mountain experiences, coming together to co-create the Slokar was clearly a natural fit.

“On a personal level, ODLO played a vital role at a very early stage of my life when I was a kid growing up in a Swiss mountaineering family,” explains Adrian Margelist, Chief Brand Officer of Burton. “Every Christmas we got a new base layer kit from ODLO and a season pass for the local mountain, so we were equipped for the season. Now over 30 years later, I’m excited and honoured to have the opportunity to combine ODLO, the pioneering brand in seamless knit, with Burton, the pioneering brand in snowboarding. The result is an amazing performance kit for the next generation of shredders and every mountain enthusiast out there.”

·       Soft-touch comfort

·       Seamless construction

·       Uninhibited range of movement

·       Natural thermoregulation

·       Exceptional moisture wicking and breathability

·       Natural anti-microbial protection (to limit odours)

Designed with a distinct Burton style that draws inspiration from big mountains and featuring the iconic Burton [ak] logo via engineered in graphics, the Slokar range is made up of a crew neck long sleeve top and matching 7/8th length bottom in two colourways for both men and women.

A fun detail: in keeping with Burton tradition, which ties together [ak] product names and helicopter designs, the Slokar takes its name from Slovenian philosopher and economist Ivan Slokar’s helicopter patents.
