Products in the uvex sports group include ski goggles and helmets, equestrian riding helmets, cycling helmets, sports eyewear and motorsport racing helmets. As safety equipment suppliers and partners for international top-level sport, uvex equips more than 1,000 professional athletes worldwide. Everything revolves around safety at work in the uvex safety group and we produce personal protective equipment from head to toe – from protective helmets to safety shoes.
As in the workplace, products must also meet the highest demands with regard to safety, function and wearer comfort in the world of sports. The transfer of knowledge between the two divisions fosters the continuous development of our safety equipment products in both industrial and sporting sectors. This synergy between our workplace PPE and sports safety specialists puts uvex in a prominent position among safety equipment suppliers. Sports and safety divisions not only work together, but also complement each other perfectly in the experience, expertise and technical knowledge they can share.
Building protection and ensuring a smooth ride
The proof of how uvex divisions cooperate well together was evident at the exciting Red Bull District Ride in Nuremberg, Germany. Our cycling safety equipment safeguarded riders from risk, but uvex also protected the workers behind the scenes. So while uvex sports equipped some of the world’s best riders with helmets and goggles, uvex safety provided PPE (personal protective equipment) to construction teams at the spectacular bike event. Both divisions contributed to an excellent team effort in front of 120,000 spectators and brought the uvex brand to life throughout the whole event. Safety equipment from uvex received star billing.
