Ready for a new personal best
Very light, technical and breathable merino shorts for intense alpine activities
Light weight, function and the best merino wool: With our new 120 COMP LIGHT SHORTS for men, the naked sheep is ready for new personal bests! To follow our award-winning 230 MERINO COMPETITION, we have developed our 120 MERINO COMPETITION line for high-action sports in both summer and winter. Consisting of a high proportion of merino wool, this line is now even lighter!
What makes our 120 COMP LIGHT SHORTS for men so special is that they are produced using an almost entirely seamless circular knitting technique, so that different material strengths can be used in different areas. A fine ribbed structure made from 120 g/m² MERINO gives these short, functional underpants elasticity for maximum freedom of movement, while a particularly breathable mesh structure ensures optimum air circulation in the areas of the body that generate the most heat. This body mapping technique, in which different knit structures are used in certain zones, ensures maximum ventilation.
What’s more, thanks to their close fit, our 120 COMP LIGHT SHORTS for men are very elastic, highly breathable and quick drying, and yet still durable and long lasting. And the gentle merino fibers with a diameter of 16.5 microns feel as comfortable and soft as a second skin. The positive features of the wool fibers come into their own in this light functional underwear, because merino wool is naturally moisture and temperature regulating and neutralizes nasty odors. And it’s all “Made in Europe”!
Experience pure lightness with our 120 COMP LIGHT SHORTS for men! Whether on a ski tour in winter or an alpine tour in summer, the way to your personal top performance is wide open.
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms. The wool is naturally 100% ecological and therefore super sustainable. Thanks to the small-diameter fibers in its fine woolen threads, merino wool feels extremely soft and comfortable on the skin. In addition to comfort, merino wool also provides an ideal personal body climate by regulating both moisture and temperature. It is also easy to care for and, thanks to its antibacterial effect, odor neutralizing.
In both the 105 MERINO ULTRA and 145 MERINO ULTRA lines, ORTOVOX uses the most exclusive yarn in the range: Nuyarn®. Fine wool fibers are spun around a polyamide core in a special manufacturing process. This produces a yarn that can be used to make light and voluminous fabrics. Increased warmth, comfort and stability are just a few of the benefits.
Our wool has its origins at the heart of a natural paradise. Where the air is at its purest, the food rich, and the climate moderate – this is where the best merino wool in the world can be found.
