Since the beginning of mankind human beings are looking for freedom and to live in peace with nature. While pushing your bike through nature you compete with yourself, daily stress and your environment. Higher – faster – further. Just driven by a certain agoraphobia.
Because of the fact that riding thorugh the woods or a bike park in a tuxedo sucks a few commited drivers started in 1999 to create high functional and well designed apparel. As they’ve always been peering for freedom they named their dream which has become real after one of their biggest fears: Platzangst.
“Platzangst – …this idea came from our own desire to feel free to compromise to conquer his own fears in order to follow the urge for freedom can be carefree.”
Since 2010 riders are able to buy high quality products with an excellent price-performance also via their professional online shop. They inter alia got the 2nd place for garment at the FREERIDE Reader’s Award 2011 and the 3rd place for garment at the MTB Rider Reader’s Award 2011.
Fortunately they offered me their DFL jacket / pants and their CROSSFLEX jacket / pants which I inter alia tested at Rotwand, Valais, my home trails and my shower. All of their products are definitely well manufactured. You’re able to have a comfort ride neither with that 90’s hip hop look nor with endless adjusting. All clothes are high functional therefore you don’t feel like sitting in a sauna or wearing a rag rug. Beside that they offer intelligently placed pockets and zippers. If you’re not yet conviced you should definitely try Platzangst apparel on your own – as I already told – they offer their products for an excellent price-performance.
