The classic Ski Race Sweater has long identified an individual as a member of the racing class; those fast, adventurous souls with a spirit drawn to the mountains. As sharp in appearance as the edges on which they carved their turns, ski racers' form fitting clothes offered low drag, maximum comfort, and the opportunity for stylish, on-mountain self expression. Alps & Meters’ Ski Race Knit is fitted and protective, with elements of appropriate padding and ergonomic engineering, updated with the classic Patrol Cross for Fall/Winter 2019.
