In 1968, in the Canton of Glarus, in the very centre of Switzerland, nestled in the fascinating and beautiful world of the Glarus Alps with the Tödi mountain towering over everything, Hans Fischli had a brainwave: in search of the “perfect ski skin”, he replaced the problematic adhesive wax with a pressure-sensitive adhesive that only stuck to the skin and could be used several times. The world’s first really functional and safe ski skin was invented. 

Even today, a full 50 years later, the spirit of the tinkerers and inventors at colltex is as alive as ever. We are pleased to celebrate this with all our employees, partners, suppliers, advisors, co-creators, riders, sports retailers and – above all – our customers.
