ISPO Award 2018 Gold Winner

PYUA is Gold Winner of the ISPO Award 2018

Quality, ecological sustainability and social responsibility are rewarded. The Kiel-based outdoor specialist PYUA produces high-quality functional clothing from recycled materials and was awarded the ISPO Award Gold Winner in the category "Snowsports - Mid Layer Hybrid" right at the beginning of 2018 for its unique added value and corporate philosophy. In 2017, PYUA won the SIS Eco Award and the coveted GreenTec Award. The company was able to leave the competition behind at the award ceremonies and can now decorate its already well-filled award showcase with further prizes.

Great honour for PYUA - based in Kiel: For the "SNUG-Y 2.0 Men's Hybrid Fleece Jacket", the company was voted Gold Winner of the ISPO Award 2018 in the category "Snowsports - Mid Layer Hybrid" by an independent jury of 42 judges from 15 countries and three continents. With the ISPO Award, ISPO MUNICH PYUA honours its outstanding product in the sports industry. For years, the ISPO Award has established itself internationally as a trend-setting award for outstanding products. 

With the "Closed Loop Recycling" developed by PYUA, PYUA collects old products from old clothing containers and creates an almost endless cycle of outdoor clothing. The production of PYUA products consumes less than a fifth of the energy originally required for conventional polyester production. In addition, crude oil is completely avoided during production in order to significantly reduce waste production.

ISPO Award, GreenTec Award and Eco Award 2017.

Also this year PYUA was able to grab an ISPO Award and win the "9" prize in a row. This year PYUA's fleece pullover Dive-Y the "Gold Winner" in the category: Products - Apparel - Outdoor - Mid Layer. 

The sporty Hoodie with Material Mix convinced the jury with its high-end material captivates with the "Moisture Management" technology and the special feature the integrated mittens. "Moisture Management" is a clever combination of water-repellent (hydrophobic) and water-attracting (hydrophilic) fibres. This ensures permanently extremely fast moisture transport from the inside to the outside.

PYUA wins in two ISPO categories!

The ISPO annually awards the ISPO Award to the most outstanding products in the sporting goods industry. Independent expert juries evaluate several hundred submissions according to precisely defined criteria, even from non-exhibitors at the ISPO trade fair. This top-class selection is a welcome orientation aid for sports business professionals as well as for consumers. 

Also in 2016 PYUA can count itself among the winners of the well-known ISPO Awards. This year two products were awarded. With the "ISPO Gold Winner 2016" in the category "3-layer Outershell in the ski segment" PYUA's 3-layer pants Continuum-Y was awarded. The unique trousers for freeriders, which combine the advantages of one-piece trousers with those of dungarees, convinced the independent expert juries with their extraordinary concept of protection and flexibility. 

PYUA's 2-layer jacket also convinced the jury. In the category "2-layer outershell in the ski segment" the padded jacket "Leaf" was awarded the "ISPO Winner 2016". The padded ski and snowboard jacket was able to convince with its body mapping principle (the use of different fabrics on different body zones) on the inside. Normally these products convince by their external performance. With this jacket, just as much attention should be paid to the performance of the interior.

Federal Prize Ecodesign 2013/1414

Excellent! Outdoor brand PYUA receives the German Ecodesign Award.

Hamburg, 12.11.2013 - The Federal Ministry (BMU) and the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) have awarded the Federal Prize Ecodesign for the second time on Monday evening in Berlin. The Kiel label PYUA was awarded the federal prize in the product category. The jury honoured the company's commitment to producing ecologically correct ski and snowboard clothing. 

Timo Perschke, managing director and founder of PYUA, is enthusiastic: "We are very happy about the award. PYUA proves that good design and environmental compatibility are not contradictory. We are convinced that ecodesign will and must be an integral part of the future".

The Federal Ecodesign Award evaluates the entire life cycle of a product. PYUA could convince with its closed-loop recycling system. The company is the world's only brand in the sports segment to produce in a closed-loop economy. The high-quality functional textiles are manufactured from recycled or recyclable materials and can be completely reused thanks to a unique take-back system. The environmentally friendly CLIMALOOP laminate meets all the requirements of winter sports enthusiasts, is waterproof and breathable.

The federal government awards the Ecodesign federal prize for ecological design. The prize is awarded to innovative products, services and concepts that convince both aesthetically and ecologically.

PYUA wins an ISPO award for the fourth time in a row

Kiel/Munich, February 2013 - With the "ISPO Award", the world's largest sporting goods trade fair, which takes place annually in Munich, honours the most outstanding products of the sporting goods industry.

Independent expert juries evaluate several hundred submissions according to precisely defined criteria. The former Eco Responsibility category, in which PYUA has already won three times, will be included as a criterion in the evaluation of all products for the first time in 2013. The PYUA "Respire" jacket is the 2013 winner in the Insulated 2-layer ski category. The jacket convinces the jury by its unusual design in combination with the innovative Laserdot technology as well as the ecologically perfect production and recycling in the PYUA Closed-Loop-Recycling-System.

Pyua Award

For the Respire jacket, PYUA has found an innovative solution to an old problem. Originally, a waterproof and breathable membrane was produced and laminated to the outer fabric. This resulted in limited breathability due to the "bonding" of the materials. Not so with the new jacket from PYUA: "With the Respire we first burned thousands of tiny holes in the outer fabric using laser technology and only then connected it to the membrane using our new CLIMALOOP laminate technology. This maintains the waterproofness of the membrane and hardly restricts its breathability," explains Perschke. The Respire now has a waterproofness of 15,000 mm and a breathability of 20,000 gr/m²/24h. 

In terms of fashion, the Respire features a futuristic design with a reduced cut. The focus is on the special features of the material. In order to maximize functionality and support a clear line, the number of seams has been reduced. As with all PYUA jackets, seams on the shoulders have been completely omitted in favour of wearing comfort for backpacks and bags. The jacket is timelessly black on the outside and warm orange on the inside. Pleats are sewn into the inner fabric to improve freedom of movement.

The jacket already consists largely of recycled materials and can be recycled 100 percent in the PYUA Closed Loop Recycling System. CLIMALOOP™ is a laminate technology specially developed for PYUA, which not only makes the Respire waterproof (15,000 mm) and breathable (20,000 gr/m²/24h), but is also ecologically controlled and certified throughout the entire production process and is ultimately recyclable. CLIMALOOP™ is bluesign®-certified, complies with the Ökotex standard and the REACH legislation of the EU. In addition, PYUA has commissioned a renowned, independent German institute with the analysis of polyfluorinated and perfluorinated acids (e.g. PFOS, PFOA). The tests were carried out according to the same test routine as the Greenpeace 2012 tests, which shook the entire textile and outdoor industry. The test result now available confirms that all substances are below the limit of determination.

PYUA wins Eco Responsibility Award by ISPO for the 3rd time in a row

24.01.2012 - Munich. PYUA has done the triple! Messe München today announced the winners of this year's Eco Responsibility Award by ISPO. And the German outerwear brand PYUA is among the winners for the third time in a row. The brand, which was only founded in 2008, receives the ISPO Environmental Award for its tireless commitment in the development of sustainable, ecologically responsible products that convince demanding winter sports enthusiasts with the highest technical equipment and function. An international jury of journalists, dealers, athletes and designers from nine countries looked at 262 applications and awarded PYUA as one of the winners. Mark Held (General Secretary European Outdoor Group) explains: "PYUA has already received the award for the last two years. But this year, the jury was very impressed by PYUA's further development of its holistic approach to ecological development. In addition, their use of a fluorocarbon-free, water-repellent coating convinced us".

PYUA founder Timo Perschke is very pleased with the award: "This award is a nice reward for our constant striving for new, innovative solutions for the production of sustainable outerwear and all processes associated with it. The fact that we have won the award for the third time in a row shows us that we are on the right track."

The award went to the "Backyard 3L Men Jacket". Depending on the temperature, the jacket can be worn alone as a light weather protection or combined with the insulation jacket "Fluffy" made of extra warm PrimaLoft® ECO in cold weather. Thanks to the high-quality Sympatex® PERFORMANCE membrane, the "Backyard 3L Men Jacket" is highly breathable (35,000 gr/m²/24h), windproof and waterproof (35,000 mm) and climate regulating. With PrimaLoft® and Sympatex® as partners, PYUA can offer clothing at the highest functional level and remain true to its values of Made in Europe, 100% recyclable and Ecorrect Outerwear. The functional highlight of the "Backyard 3L Men Jacket" is the extremely high collar, which protects the face from wind and weather. Thanks to the small ventilation slits in the mouth area, breathing through the jacket is no problem at all. Waterproof zippers and fully taped seams offer additional protection for wetness. And the jacket leaves nothing to be desired: high-quality workmanship with ingenious details such as the lettering "starboard" and "port" on the inside of the cuffs make this first-class ski jacket an absolute eye-catcher.

PYUA pays special attention to the optimisation of recycling. In order to guarantee the return of the raw materials to the recycling system, PYUA put the take-back process on a completely new footing and is the first sports company worldwide to cooperate with companies that professionally collect used clothing. As a result, the take-back of used functional clothing is no longer - as in the past - tied to the commitment of the retailers, but is for the first time based on consumer habits thanks to the possibility of disposing of PYUA products in the familiar used clothing container.

PYUA wins Eco Responsibility Award by ISPO for the second time

28.01.2011 - Munich. On Friday Messe München announced the winner of this year's Eco Responsibility Award by ISPO: the German freeride brand PYUA.


This is the second time that the brand, which was only founded in 2008, has received the ISPO Environmental Award for its tireless commitment to the development of sustainable, ecologically responsible products. The jury, made up of experts from the fields of environmental protection, industry, sport and media, was convinced above all by the coherent overall concept and the consistent further development and optimisation of sustainable value-added processes. "Whizz", a freeride outfit made of jacket and trousers for men and "Floated", the corresponding freeride outfit for women, won the race this time. Their features: 100% waterproof, 100% breathable and 100% recyclable. Almost exclusively pure, recycled materials were used, all of them bluesign® certified and thus already produced in an environmentally friendly way in the preliminary stage. The Sympatex® membrane is also PTFE-free and recyclable. A special mesh lining also makes the 3-layer jacket particularly robust and durable - another contribution to the careful use of our resources. This time PYUA has paid special attention to the optimisation of recycling. In order to ensure the return of raw materials to the recycling system, PYUA put the take-back process on a completely new footing and is the first sports company worldwide to cooperate with companies that professionally collect used clothing. As a result, the take-back of used functional clothing is no longer - as before - tied to the commitment of the retailers, but for the first time is geared to the habits of consumers.

"We are very pleased with what we have achieved so far, but we also know that optimising sustainable production is an ongoing task. We are very proud that the jury of the Eco Responsibility Award has rewarded exactly this with the renewed award," explains founder Timo Perschke.

PYUA wins the Eco Responsibility Award of the ISPO

Our motto "Ecorrect Freeride" is again outstanding. By winning the Eco Responsibility Award of ISPO for our Climate Series, PYUA shows once again that it is worthwhile to tread new paths instead of always following the beaten track. With this award, ISPO (Messe München) honours companies that are committed to environmental protection and the sustainability of their products in an exemplary manner and are "already active as pioneers in the field of eco responsibility and serve as models and signposts for the entire industry". We are very happy about this award and would like to thank all partners who helped us to become a bit smarter and to get closer to the "Ecorrect Freeride" idea.

A 13-member jury with top-class representatives from science, consulting and the press evaluated the products on the basis of the scientifically founded ESPA criteria, which illuminate the product from raw material to logistics to recycling.

PYUA received the award for the PYUA Climate 2L Padded Men Jacket and Pant, both highly functional products, which were also honoured for their unique combination of sustainable materials. The Sympatex membrane and the outer fabrics used are bluesign® certified. Sustainability does not begin with the product, but is an elementary component of the entire value chain. The inner material of the Climate series comes from the closed recycling system known as Eco Circle™. Eco Circle™ reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions to approximately one fifth compared to the production of polyester raw materials from crude oil. The insulation material used is PrimaLoft® Eco, a pure polyester material consisting of 70% recycled and 30% PrimaLoft® primary fibres, which creates a soft, breathable and thermally highly efficient insulating layer.

But this is by no means the end of the company's commitment to sustainability: the sustainable corporate culture and the sales concept of the mobile showroom, which saves an estimated 30 tons of CO2 per season, were also praised.

Jury statement: "The still young freeride brand Pyua consistently and purposefully implements its comprehensive sustainability concept. The end consumer receives a fashionable product with a successful appearance, which, thanks to the use of the PTFE-free Sympatex membrane, guarantees maximum functionality with the best compatibility and complete recyclability".
