IFSC Partner KAILAS to Attend Bouldering World Cup in Vail, USA
The final IFSC Bouldering World Cup of the 2019 season takes place on June 7-8th in Vail, Colorado (USA) and to celebrate the season finale, long-term IFSC Partner KAILAS will be in attendance.
Partnered with the IFSC since 2013 in the category of apparel, ropes and safety gear, KAILAS is widely recognised across China as the most innovative and technical outdoor company, specialising in climbing apparel and equipment. IFSC Officials have exclusively worn KAILAS apparel during international events for a number of years and for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, KAILAS is preparing to produce a unique set of IFSC uniforms for IFSC Officials, Staff and Executive Board members.
Throughout the partnership the IFSC has noted a series of shared values with KAILAS, including accessible, healthy and educational activity for younger generations and equality for men and women in Sport Climbing. As such, the IFSC is proud to have renewed its partnership with KAILAS in March 2019 during the 14th Annual IFSC Plenary Assembly in Tokyo, Japan.
“KAILAS has been a key player in developing Sport Climbing for many years, particularly in China,” says IFSC Marketing & Communications Director Anne Fuynel.
“As one of the IFSC’s longest-standing partners, we are delighted to continue the partnership during the exciting approach to Tokyo 2020, where the IFSC will be wearing specially-designed KAILAS apparel to share Sport Climbing with the world at an Olympic level.”
KAILAS is scheduled to attend the IFSC Bouldering World Cup Vail, where athletes and spectators alike will have the opportunity to purchase apparel from the top outdoor brand’s latest range.
