Stamford, Connecticut – February 11 –X-Technology, the manufacturer of X-Socks, has won a prestigeous ISPO European Ski Award in the Other category for their new Ski Metal sock technology. The sock features the company's proprietary metallic XITANIT™ yarn that effectively reflects heat onto the foot and maintains it at the body's natural temperature, much the way silver mylar rescue blankets work for emergency use. This combats cold feet, the number one complaint of skiers all over the world. The announcement was made during the ISPO trade fair held in Munich, Germany, February 1-4.

The European Ski Award honors the best new ski products each season for Hardware, Ski Boots, Ski Bindings, Nordic, and Other. The winning products and companies were presented to the international press at the ISPO on-snow preview held right before the trade show opened. The number of participants and entries grows each year, confirming the international magnitude of these coveted awards. Sports experts from all over the world analyze, test, scrutinize, and nominate the latest trends and innovations from the various segments. X-Technology is proud to be a winner.
