Based in the heart of the Drôme region, CimAlp is a French SME which, since 1964, has designed cutting-edge clothes and accessories for hiking, skiing, trail and trekking to support outdoor sports professionals and enthusiasts. Breaking away from its competitors, CimAlp has become an online only brand to reduce the intermediaries, and offer the best innovations at prices 20 to 30% less than average. With numerous active patented technologies, tested and approved by professionals, (guides, experts, engineers), research and development is at the heart of the company, and comfort is its trademark.
The brand CimAlp has been developed around a fundamental core that is clean and asserts its difference on the outdoor activity market with ergonomic clothing that provides freedom of movement. For 50 years now, we have been convinced that our clothes must be able to be forgotten about in the longest moments of immobilisation, such as the moments of the most intense effort. Activists for comfort but also the democratisation of technical products with prices and a method of distribution that is accessible to a wider audience, we guarantee you the best innovations available on the market, validated by the most demanding experts.
CimAlp historically designs and distributes its products to professionals, (high mountain guides, sports doctors, etc.), before release to the general public. As a result, we only bring to the market products that have been tested and proven under extreme conditions.
Our fabrics are carefully chosen from the best suppliers like Schoeller in Switzerland.
As CimAlp is a French family company, at the heart of which each associate is important and empowered we all have, as passionate outdoor enthusiasts, maximum interest in each of our clients. This founding value is translated into the constant desire to satisfy you by providing you with the best customer service, located in France, proficient and available. It is also demonstrated in our choice and the fairest price, throughout the year.
As it drives at continuous innovation, inquisitiveness has driven us for a number of years to incorporate medical and extreme sports innovations to make technology and comfort accessible to every person who wishes to discover new types of freedom of movement. It is with this desire to offer our clients the latest scientific innovations in our clothing that we have, for example, designed clothes made from chitin to protect you from mosquitos.
Respectful of natural resource, CimAlp is working on the lifespan of its products and is an activist against planned obsolescence, even in textiles! Producing just enough to consume, means carefully selecting raw materials and the best production processes for clothing designed to last. Also, the elastic threads used for your clothing provide stretchability down to the seams, in order that they do not burst. Finally, we can repair your clothes, even the oldest pieces, if you simply return them to us.
For CimAlp, being agile in its development is to be capable of understanding different markets and to diversify our offerings by capitalising on our historical expertise in this niche market. Our ambition is to place our products, (and inherent technologies), accessible to a wider audience, that is to an increasing number of uses like travel, running and recovery.
