IFSC World Cups - Villars and Chamonix
High up in the mountains, we took part in the the first 2018 Lead World Cup in Villars, and the legendary Lead and Speed event in Chamonix.
LUXOV® Touch Speed is exporting itself to Villars and Chamonix for IFSC World Cups!
As a committed partner of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC), LUXOV® was given the chance to present our company and products during two stages of the 2018 IFSC World Cup. High up in the mountains, we took part in the the first 2018 Lead World Cup in Villars, and the legendary Lead and Speed event in Chamonix. It was a great occasion for us to present the LUXOV® Touch Speed to various types of climbers.
The aficionados race on LUXOV® Touch Speed
The results and weather of the two World Cups differed substantially, yet the success of the LUXOV® Booth didn’t change a bit from one side of the border to the other.
Our booth was always crowded despite rain and wind in Villars, and burning temperatures in Chamonix. The good location of the booth and the LUXOV® challenge attracted many different kinds of climbers. Organised in our brand new tent, we were visited by climbers of all ages, novices and IFSC top athletes.
Successfully reaching everyone
From Dimitrii Timofeev (Russian athlete who has won several Speed World Cups) to curious novices, including young Swiss climbers competing at their national Championship, the tests of the new Luxov Touch holds were numerous. No less than 5 500 runs were completed on our wall during the two world cups!
The demo wall was set up with a dual mode containing two parallel routes, insuring a great show! Driven by a highly motivated and competitive Italian Speed Climbing Team, whose members multiplied the attempts, everyone quickly and enthusiastically joined the game !
The partnership between LUXOV® and the IFSC run until 2020. It has a bright future, and the best is yet to come… Stay tuned !
