Olympic collection RIo 2016
Olympic collection RIo 2016

The Olympics have started! Whole world is looking on Rio de Janeiro where XXXI. Olympic Games are being held! Olympic collection by Alpine Pro consists of 20 pieces of men and women clothing. The emphasis was placed on colours of Czech Republic – white, red and blue. Our designers were mainly inspired by Rio’s carnival mood and therefore brought lots of shiny colours into the collection. We have been preparing the collection for two years with cooperation of Czech sportsmen who tested and commented both design and function. The main motive of collection is drawn picture of Czech athletic legend and quadruple Olympic winner in endurance run Emil Zátopek. Zátopek sometimes added a drawing of two runners when signaturing, one symbolising him and the other one his wife, Dana Zátopková, also Olympic Games winner. This pattern was used by academic painter Milan Jaroš to create Olympic motive. It is already fourth time that Alpine Pro produced Czech Olympic collection. Will the succeses of psychedelic circles from Vancouver, rubber boots from London , fur-caps or gold lining of Olympic jackets in Socchi be repeated with colourful hats in Rio? Except adorable hats you will find in collection other news – colourful casual shirts for men. Each piece is one of a kind. Each shirt is unique in its own way, because material for shirt was printed in a whole and only then cut into separate pieces. This way, pattern is individual for each shirt. Wear one of eight colourful hats together with shirt and your Olympic outfit will be just perfect! Enjoy our olympic collection!

Enjoy quality and comfort in new sport collection by Alpine Pro tested by Czech biathlonists!

Quick-drying, breathable, flexible. Those are the most important attributes of spring and summer sportswear. Quality sportswear protects you against bad weather conditions and its functions help you to enjoy your sporting activity more and even improve your sport results. Functional materials by Alpine Pro eliminate smell of perspiration and dry quick. They are flexible, vapor permeable and wind resistant. Our designers thought of each detail so you won't have trouble finding a place for your keys, cell phone or energy buscuit to support your sport effort.
Our functional sportswear was tested by Czech biatlonists Gabriela Soukalová and Ondřej Moravec because even in summer biatlonists do not rest but need to gain strength by cycling, running or in-line skating. Functional and comfortable clothes are a must for these activities. So we used their experiences and put articles of our Performance collection to demanding test!
Gabriela loves our POSALA sweatshirt which is made from cozy and flexible material, has decorative stitching and sleeves with thumb holes. Jacket BERYLA is the best alternative for running because it is super light and packable to pocket. Ondřej likes sleeveless T-Shirt SUNK because of special Coffee Cool-Dry material that dries very quickly and protects him from UV rays.
Summer is coming and it is a high time to do something for yourself. Sport activities are great for relaxation and strengthening your imunne system. It is ideal way to clear your head and forget your everyday troubles and routine. It releases endorphins and improves your physical condition. It is never late to start and Alpine Pro is here to offer you wide range of functional products.

Jiří Kolbaba dressed by Alpine Pro when travelling the world
Jiří Kolbaba dressed by Alpine Pro when travelling the world

Jiří Kolbaba, Czech traveller, adventurer and photographer, picks adventurous destinations and sets out on unusual journeys every year. He is not afraid of the most remoted, wildest or inhospitable places on Earth. He has already visited 130 countries. His photographs are worth seeing not only because of the places where lots of us probably will never set a foot on, but the way of catching the moment, capturing the scenery, nature details or exotic faces of natives is breathtaking. He fascinates many people during slideshows, talkshows or appearances in media. This is the way how I got to know and remember Jiří Kolbaba the most – talks on the radio. I am very proud that he has chosen our company Alpine Pro and put our products in tests in various environments during his wild world tours. Jirka will join the team of Czech sportsmen and olympionics who are dressed by Alpine Pro. „Over the years I have tried outdoor clothing and shoes of many foreign companies and I am glad that I have finally found the brand that offers perfect products not just visually but technically and in addition it is Czech brand. I find it fantastic.”
In 2016 he plans to visit Iceland, Alaska, Norway, Nepal, Bhutan, Indonesia and Greece. As he says: „I am very demanding. Perfect attributes of each part of my clothing and shoes are absolutely essential when staying in nature. It is understandable that during travelling all over the world I prefer light, functional, reliable clothes in which I feel comfortable, too.“
We wish Jirka many fortunate kilometres and joyful experiences around the world and we are looking forward to hear about extraordinary places he will go to!

Forty-three czech young participants aged 15-18 years joined the olympic team in Lillehammer in Norway. YOG is very special opportunity. They experienced the sport atmosphere of the Games for the first time and it could be the addmission card for the next Winter olympic games held in South Korea. Furthermore, sportsmen were welcomed to stay after YOG to take part in various workshops and teambuilding actions.
In 10 days more then 1100 sportmen from 71 countries took part in the medal fights.

OLYMPIC PARK NEAR LIPNO LAKE
OLYMPIC PARK NEAR LIPNO LAKE

As one of the official partners of Czech olympic team we would like to share this amazing project with you. After the great succes of winter olympic park in Prague – Letná, open during winter olympic games SOCHI 2014, where more than 400 000 fans came to enjoy the winter sport grounds and the olympic atmosphere, it would certainly be a huge pity not to continue with summer olympic park. The main intention was to find a place, where people could try out all the summer olympic sports – especially the water sports. Keeping the playgrounds and sport grounds open and available for sport enthusiasts after the olympic games is essential. That is why the Lipno area near Šumava national park has been chosen. Lipno lake is the biggest water area in Czech Republic and offers already lively sport infrastructure. The aim is to use and modernize existing sport grounds, as well as to build new ones, that will attract more tourists and sport keeners to the area. For those fans who can not make it to Lipno olympic park, there will be sport activities and live broadcasting all over the Czech Republic. Please, check the video:
