“The Lycra Race Glove? My absolute favorite glove!” Alessandro Pittin has no doubts about the Sportful glove that is much more ... than a glove. “The first time I wore it, I won the silver medal at the world championships in Falun in 2015, so of course it has great sentimental value for me. From a technical perspective it is outstanding: perfect in terms of fit, lightness and grip on the pole,” says the talent from Friuli, born in 1990. In his display case, Pittin also keeps the bronze medal he won at the Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, which represents the point of reference for the Italian national Nordic combined team. “For me, Sportful is more than a leader in sports clothing,” he says. “The quality and professionalism are excellent, but, above all, it’s an organization that feels like a family to me."
