Soletics creates smart outdoor athletic apparel for winter athletes. Our Team is passionate about creating the best winter wearables for serious riders. We combine intelligent electronics with high performing equipment to create the ultimate cold weather gear. All of our products are designed with natural processes in mind, complimenting what your body already does so well. This means our gear is highly efficient and reliable. If you’re sick and tired of the weather cutting your runs short, or sweaty palms soaking the inside of your gloves, you’ve come to the right place. Our Smart Gloves will keep your hands dry and at a comfortable temperature all day long, automatically. Craving even more temperature-controlled bliss? The Soletics Smart Jacket pulls excess heat from your sweaty, overworked core while simultaneously heating your frozen extremities. And the kicker? This puppy still has some left over juice after a long, cold day to charge your smartphone. So what are you waiting for, get out of the lodge and take that mountain like the toasty champion you were born to be.
Did you know that our team hits the slopes at least twice a week? Catching an edge, eating powder, wrecking gloves on the tow rope, freezing toes, wet clothes…we’ve been there. While we’re far from pros, we are constantly striving to improve ourselves and our gear. If you’re from the Grand Rapids area, join us on the slopes sometime! You can find us at Cannonsburg Ski Area in Belmont Michigan (if we’re not on the slopes, we’re probably in the bar!) Live in Narnia? No problem. Head over to our Get Involved page to let us know what you think, or to make a product suggestion.
When we’re not out on the slopes or working on our prototypes, you’ll probably catch us tearing it up on the 360, SSX Tricky style. There is no such thing as mercy in the world of virtual snowboarding, and our team is no exception–we play to the death. If you’re looking for a ridiculously overdone and wholly epic videogame, SSX Tricky is for you. Drop in on Mt. Everest, grind off of helicopters, and fly over huge crevasses like the badass you were meant to be. If you think you can keep up, send us a challenge, we’ll take you on.
This year’s Winter Olympics have been one of the most entertaining games in recent memory–but maybe not for the right reasons. Reports of the terrible (and sometimes comical) conditions of the Sochi facilities have been flooding in these past few days. Apparently the Olympians and reporters have been subjected to hotels without lobbies, bathrooms with room for an audience, and unclean water. Our team is interested to know what Russia did with the 51 billion dollars they supposedly spent on the event. Maybe next round they should put poor college students on the financial board; we know how to stretch a dollar.
