Help Red7 bring the CG1 ski suit to market

Kickstarter project needs £55,000 within 30 days

Forget the fluorescent one-piece ski suits of the 80’s and check out this modern-day number called the CG1 ski suit.

Suitable for both skiers and boarders, it’s made from soft-shell with a stretch PU membrane and a fleece lining. There’s under arm and inner leg ventilation in case you get too hot and RECCO avalanche rescue reflectors too.

The CG1 ski suit has been created by a new start-up called Red7SkiWear, overseen by young entrepreneurs and keen sportswomen Naomi Hampton and Christie Fearnside.

Earlier this week they launched a Kickstarter campaign and the next 30 days are vital if they’re to raise the £55,000 they need to bring the CG1 ski suit to market.

Rio 2016 Olympic legend Maddie Hinch, a professional hockey player and seasoned heli-skier and snowboard freerider, Angelica Sykes have already endorsed the brand and so far the funds are up to £11,000.

Interested parties can choose to give from £1 to £5,000, each amount allowing the pledger to choose a particular product or service.

Those wishing to spend their next ski trip clad in an official CG1 suit can pledge as little as £199 in order to snap up the Super Early Bird offer.

Options for pledgers also include special edition Founding Member (FM) beanie hats, snapback caps, blender bottles, 100% cotton t-shirts and sweaters and a week’s rental of a luxury Swiss chalet.

The girls have both left successful jobs in the city so come on Adventure 52 readers, let’s help them get Red7 off the ground.
