KARPOS AND TOR DES GÉANTS®


Karpos and Tor des Géants®. A partnership that today seems completely natural, as if it had been predetermined. A predestined collaboration. Love for the land, the people who immerse themselves in it, and the nature surrounding it are elements that have no limits and that bring people closer to their dreams, which is what happened with Karpos and TORX®. This is the feeling that Karpos and the organizers of TORX® share.

Tor des Geants

We are very excited to welcome Karpos as our new travel companion, a brand with which we share our most important values: love for the mountains, professionalism, attention to detail, Italian quality, and that slightly eclectic style that makes us unique and distinctive. Above all, we share the spirit of adventure and the desire to explore new heights, to broaden our horizons and therefore grow. We will be together on the paths of the giants, in a team that already promises to be an amazing and extraordinary experience, like TORX®.

Alessandra Nicoletti
Tor des Géants® President

Tor des Geants

We always follow new trails and routes because this helps us change perspective. We have an entire world to discover right outside our office. This is where the desire to write a new story together with the Tor des Géants® came from.

TOR X COLLECTION

As the main sponsor of the event, we’ve created the official Tor des Géants® technical clothing line. We've built it in organic cotton - a material that’s environmentally friendly - because its production and processing use no pesticides or synthetic substances. The production process is guaranteed by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification, which recognizes companies that respect and protect producers and their work. These garments represent the spirit that inspires both Karpos and TORX®️ and that unites us in this adventure with all of you, Giants.

You can find these limited-edition pieces in our online shop, at our partner shop in Courmayeur, or at the Karpos stand at the bib collection of TOR330 - Tor des Géants®️.


 

TOR X GIANTS'GARMENTS


TORX® is a dream, an icon. An all-encompassing and immersive experience. Wearing the finisher jersey means being part of a story. It means having left everything on the trails, on the Alte Vie of Valle d’Aosta.

For those who cross the finish line of the TOR330 – Tor des Géants® and the TOR450 – Tor des Glaciers, with the concentrated stare of the race effort transforming into a smile of relief and satisfaction, the brand has designed finisher jerseys. Runners who finish the TOR130 – Tot Dret and the TOR30 – Passage au Malatrà will receive a limited-edition TORX® headband.

Made with Polartec® Delta, an innovative recycled fabric that wicks away moisture more quickly and sticks to the skin less when wet, the jersey and headband are the coolest garments available, even in hot conditions. The essence of these garments, though, is not just the technology but the story, the bond that connects them with those who have earned them. Because TORX® is not just a race. It is above all a giant challenge against yourself and your own individual limits, both physical and mental. For this reason, everyone at every level who manages to finish this adventure deserves the appropriate recognition.


DON'T LEAVE AT HOME



“Clothing plays a critical role in a race like the Tor. It must be lightweight but high-performance. It must ensure protection from the elements, even in the most extreme conditions, and it must be comfortable. On the trails it will be my second skin for kilometers and kilometers; I have to forget I’m wearing it to be able to concentrate solely on my performance.”

Franco Collè’s routine on the eve of the Tor des Géants is almost a superstitious ritual. A way to say, “OK, everything is fine. Now I can start without worrying.” He has only the essentials with him, because on a run like the Tor everything needs to be taken into account. Forgetting one small thing or choosing the wrong gear could be enough to compromise the result of the Tor, the hardest ultra trail race in the world.

You too can wear the favorite garments of the Tor des Géants record holder and three-time winner, Franco Collè. Join the TORX family and take it with you on all your runs to experience the thrill of the toughest race throughout the year!
