NW Alpine Partners with Flystyle

Portland, Ore. – NW Alpine, manufacturer of Oregon-made alpine climbing apparel, announced a new partnership with Flystyle, a Portland/Hood River-based paragliding team and school on Oct. 20, 2014.

NW Alpine will outfit the Flystyle Paragliding team in select pieces of its breathable, weatherproof clothing that is typically used for alpine climbing. The domestically made technical apparel uses the latest fabrics and technology to maximize performance and comfort in extreme sports.

Paragliding is the adventure sport of free flying and one of the simplest forms of human flight requiring only a lightweight wing and harness. The pilot carries the complete set-up on his back and launches by foot. Simple as that.

“Hike and Fly” or "Para-Alpinism" is a derivative of traditional paragliding that is rapidly growing in popularity. As the name suggests, it requires the pilot to hike or climb to a high altitude launch site for a thrilling mountainside descent. The fusion of these two extreme sports can be exhausting--Red Bull has described its biennial hike-and-fly competition as “the world’s toughest adventure race”. Lightweight, functional apparel and gear are absolutely essential.

"It's a natural fit," said Flystyle founder Daniel Randall. "Our lives depend on great gear, so mediocre equipment isn't an option. Team Flystyle will be wearing NW Alpine exclusively."

Team Flystyle participates in traditional paragliding, hike and fly, speedflying and speedriding activities on a regular basis. They love to travel and follow the best conditions all over the world.
