We are pleased to expand our portfolio with the brand CHROME in Switzerland and Austria. With Chrome, we are strengthening our product portfolio in the division Urban/Llifestyle and are convinced that we can offer our customers a high quality product. The recognition is guaranteed due to the unique closure!
CHROME Almost two decades ago the first chrome bag was made with a juki sewing machine, a few yards of Cordura®, military grade truck tarpaulin, and the commitment to make bombproof gear that works on and off the bike. From the beginning, the drive for simple, useful, and resourceful solutions led Chrome to make its original messenger bag with a salvaged seatbelt buckle. With innovations like the iconic quick release buckle, load stabilizing strap, dual wall construction and five bar webbing, the Chrome messenger bag became the bag of choice for working bike messengers around the world. Over the last 20 years chrome has never wavered from its commitment to making useful and durable gear for professional messengers, fixed freestyle riders, and urban commuters: people who live and ride in the city. Chrome is urban mobility. We make simple, functional gear built with industrial-strength materials and features that work on the bike and in the bar. We make gear that protects people and their things from the elements without looking like you came from the mountains. Made for living the city. chromeindustries.com
We are very pleased to announce that CHRIS sports will have a new member in the CHRIS sports family. Mondraker is a spanish producer (Alicante, 2001) of Highperformance-Mountainbikes and has with their Zero Suspension System and the Forward Geometry (long top tube, very short stem) a unique selling point. We are convinced that these innovations are a huge contribution to the MTB landscape in Switzerland. Moreover, it fits perfectly into our brand portfolio, says Christian Bättig Founder of CHRIS sports.
Giro Sport Design, the cycling world’s design leader, has announced the Aerohead™ MIPS and Aerohead™ Ultimate MIPS. Already raced to victory in the Tour de France and UCI Track World Cups, the Aerohead Ultimate MIPS features the fastest helmet shape Giro has ever tested, plus MIPS multi-directional impact protection system, and the class-leading ventilation of Roc Loc Air®. The helmet will be available this summer in two versions: the Aerohead MIPS (with venting for longer timed events) and the Aerohead Ultimate MIPS, featuring a TeXtreme™ shell to combine a smaller frontal area and reduced venting for even less, tested in the wind tunnel.
In cooperation with local dealers, CHRIS sports has provided a triathlon team. All the team members come from eastern Switzerland and represent the brands, New Balance, Arena, Giro and Evoc with great dedication . We look forward to working with the team, whether in competitions, events, and on our the social media channels.

The "Auffahrtslauf" in St. Gallen is already history. It was and intense, but very successful day.
New 10km course record (33.10,04) and predominant victory of New Balance runner Abel Mulugeta, a team of colleagues from the Männerwerk St. Gallen who successfully completed the 10km course, a CHRIS sports member who spontaneously accompanied the team, a BMWi3 filled with New Balance Shoes, a spontaneous visit of the Tri United by CHRIS sports-triathlon-team, as well as the musical support from Chris & Kelly Trio turned Ascension Day into a happy day.
