POC and Marco Odermatt unveil new signature race editions

Ahead of the new World Cup season, POC and Marco Odermatt are proud to introduce a new limited-edition signature series goggle, which has been designed exclusively by Marco and POC, and which will be used by Marco in the upcoming season.

POC has been working closely with Marco for many years, and last year announced a new four-year partnership alongside his first signature series goggle. The new design has been developed by POC and Marco exclusively for the Zonula goggle, which is Marco’s chosen race goggle thanks to its incredible performance and field of vision.

Marco is known to have started skiing at a very early age and was inspired by many of ski racing’s greats. And it’s that inspiration that has also laid the foundation for an extension to the Marco Odermatt series, with a helmet, goggle and neck warmer designed to protect, inspire and be used specifically by junior ski racers.

The collection is comprised of a ‘Skull Dura Jr Marco Odermatt Edition’, a ‘Fovea Mid Race Marco Odermatt Edition’ and a ‘Neck warmer Marco Odermatt Edition’.

Introducing the Junior series, Marco Odermatt said : “It’s easy to spot the lion on the helmet, which has been a big inspiration to me since I was a small kid on the slopes. With POC we worked on a design centered around the lion, which to me is the symbol of power and agility. Being able to inspire and motivate younger skiers is incredibly humbling and takes me back to my early racing years trying to emulate the greats. That was a positive motivation to me, and I hope this design will inspire younger racers to follow their passion in much the same way.”

Magnus Gustavsson, Hard Goods Director at POC, added : “Marco’s results speak for themselves and his approach to skiing is one we respect greatly, especially how he includes and inspires younger racers. We are thrilled with the new editions and look forward to seeing them on the slopes.”

Product details_

When Marco was a young, up and coming ski racer, he was inspired and motivated by his idols and often wanted to have the same equipment they used. With his new junior collection, he wanted to share that same feeling with young skiers that are inspired by him, all centered around the lion, which is a motivation and inspiration to him.
