We are extremely pleased to be able to add two top-quality sportswear brands, Kari Traa and Triple2, to our portfolio.
Kari Traa is a brand made for girls by girls and was founded in 2002 by Norwegian Kari Traa, a three-time Olympic champion in freestyle skiing. Starting out with beanies and base layers, it has now developed into a complete sports brand for women with a focus on fitness, training and running. Just like Björn Daehlie, the brand belongs to Active Brands, a supplier of premium brand goods, so CHRIS sports will be able to benefit from key synergies. With the takeover of Kari Traa, we are also capitalizing on the popular trend towards Scandinavian brands. karitraa.com
Triple2: Cycling, being outdoors and experiencing nature and an urban lifestyle are the passions of the founders of Triple2. However, they are also active in many other outdoor sports, so they are focused on ensuring that their products are designed optimally for these sports. At the same time, products should also be as practical as possible for daily use. All of the products are manufactured in Croatia on a highly professional production line. The majority of the materials used are also from Europe. Ecology and social responsibility are top priorities for Triple2, and all of its products and manufacturing processes must adhere to these principles. triple2.ch
