STOWE, Vermont (October 22, 2008) – Level Gloves continues to strengthen its glove/mitt brand with the launch of the Aksel Lund Svindal Pro model. Two years in the making, Level worked with World Cup champion, Aksel Lund Svindal to develop a high performance glove for alpine racers. The Aksel Pro model incorporates a waterproof breathable 2 in 1 membrane from Gore-Tex™, PrimaLoft™ insulation, first class leather and reinforced palm, long cuff, and special gate deflector. The Aksel Pro model debuts at a special event at the Sölden, Austria World Cup opening race on October 24th. The Aksel Pro model will be worn by Svindal during the 2008/2009 World Cup season and will be available at retail in fall 2009.

According to Charlie Adams, sales and marketing manager for Level USA, “The Aksel Pro model was created with the very best materials, technology and performance features for the alpine racer. The unique 2 in 1 membrane addresses a common complaint of racers who need warmth yet crave dexterity in race settings.”

The Aksel Pro Glove is available in men's sizes S-XXL (7-10), approximate retail price, $150

Product highlights include:

•Gore-Tex™ 2 in 1 Membrane- This innovative system offers a glove with two chambers, one for warmth, one for grip, separated by a practical tab between the two chambers. The result is an easy to use glove that is ideal for cold weather as well as activities that require grip and high dexterity.

•Primaloft Insulation-This soft insulation is water repellant and breathable, maintaining warmth even when wet.

•Kirax Technology- The Kirax Reflex Stimulator is mounted on the inside of the glove offering users increased performance by stimulating the body's neurological system in a unique way to enhance reaction time, performance and a sense of general well-being.

•First Class Leather/ Reinforced Leather Palm- High quality leathers provide the durability and feel so key to alpine performance.

•Long Cuff- Long length protects and preserves warmth
