Patrick Vallençant, a freeride precursor, launched his clothing brand in 1982 with the help of the stylist Ingrid Büchner who designed her products as technically advanced as colourful! He died on the Beaume Rouge cliff in 1989 but his brand, Degré7, still lives on and remains true to its values. In 2005, Degré7 launched the Seamless, the very-first seamless 3-in-1. In 2008, it’s the turn of the Fine-Tex, a breathable membrane packed with nanotechnologies. A technical knowledge that seduced the French ski-cross team which has chosen to place its trust in Degré7 for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. After being bought by Idealp, the company moved to Albertville where it will soon celebrate its 40th birthday. When it comes to your ski jacket or ski pants, you can trust the Made in France!
