POC and Marco Odermatt unveil future partnership with signature goggle
Ahead of the new World Cup season start in Sölden, Austria, POC and Marco Odermatt are proud to announce their continued partnership with a new long-term agreement. The new four-year partnership is celebrated with a limited-edition signature series goggle, designed exclusively by Marco and POC, and which will be used for the first time in Sölden.
POC has been working closely with Marco for many years, and since 2018 have supported his enormous natural talent with a host of highly advanced race helmets and eyewear.
Talking about the continued partnership Marco says - “POC is at the forefront of safety and performance innovation. To be able to ski fast with one hundred percent commitment and focus, I have to have absolute confidence in my vision and safety. I know I can count on my helmets and goggles and committing to four more years together with POC is a demonstration of this, and I am very excited about our future partnership.”
Amber Stackhouse, global sports marketing lead for snow sports at POC, added - “Marco’s results speak for themselves. But equally impressive is the way he approaches skiing; his focus, his technique, his energy and his enthusiasm, which impact so clearly on all around him. His approach to skiing is one we respect greatly and together it allows us to push our ideas even further, and we are thrilled to support each other for another four years.”
To mark the new partnership Marco and POC have designed a limited-edition Zonula goggle which will be available online and in selected retail stores immediately.
Introducing the Zonula Clarity Comp Marco Odermatt Ed. Marco said - “I’m especially excited about my first signature goggle with POC. I race in the Zonula goggle as it offers incredible performance and field of vision. Uniquely the strap is designed with a lion which has been an inspiration to me since I was a small kid on the slopes. With POC we worked on a new colour and centered the design around the lion, which to me is the symbol of power and agility. I am excited to race this season in my own design, it’s inspiring to me and I hope it will inspire others.”
