Many innovations and further developed products made it into the final selection of the third round of the ISPO Awards 2022, but only a total of 16 products actually made it to the coveted award. Particularly striking this time: the field of applicants has rarely been so diverse. These are the winners.

New digital solutions for individualized products and services, a new safety technology for avalanche backpacks, the first magnetic closures for hydration bladders, solar panels plus storage unit for energy-autonomous travel, or 10,000 lumen headlamps - the versatility of the winning products not only reflects the enormous range of highlight products submitted this time for the ISPO Award
2022.It is also representative of the creativity and innovative spirit of our industry.
Despite the uniqueness of each product, consistent trends can be identified: Digitalisation is being used in more and more products and services and is reflected, for example, in digital offers that use artificial intelligence to help customers select the right product for them. The topic of safety also inspired many brands to develop new solutions this time – regardless of whether it is about safe closures, safe outdoor activities in the dark or increasing the chance of survival in avalanche accidents. Sustainability was less obvious this time, mainly because less clothing was submitted and more hardware. But of course, sustainability is a central theme here as well.
