Cross-Country Skiing

The sun shines warmly on the snow-covered treetops as you make your way down the trail, one metre at a time. It’s moments like these that really make you understand why cross-country skiing is one of the most popular winter sports. But to fully enjoy your cross-country skiing tour, you need more than just a pair of skis and some ski sticks. You need a proper Maier Sports winter outfit that supports all of your movements while keeping you warm and cosy.

Clothes you can rely on

Snow-covered landscapes might look temptingly tranquil, but cross-country skiing is still a full-body workout. Full-length trails can make you sweat quite a bit, if you’re doing it right. That’s why your cross-country skiing outfit needs to be able to perform well in any of these categories:

- Maximum freedom of movement
- Optimal breathability
- Reliable protection against the cold
- Good heat retention even during downtime

Whether you’re going down a steep descent or you’re increasing your speed on a level trail, you should never underestimate how much your body might cool off due to the wind. Even on an otherwise warm day, wind chill can make you feel much colder than anticipated.

That’s why clothes that don’t impede your movements, protect you against the wind and wick away excess moisture from your skin are the perfect choice for a cross-country skiing outfit.

Keep your cool with Maier Sports Cross-Country outshell clothes

For an optimal cross-country skiing outfit, you should layer different types of clothes on top of each other. Your jacket and pants are the outer-most layers of your outfit – also known as the “Outshell”.

Using highly functional elements like our PrimaLoft® padding material in the front and our waterproof PFC-free finish, such clothes effectively protect you against the elements, while breathable fabrics in the back prevents moisture and excess heat from building up inside –you can see this combination of attributes in action with our Telfs Jacket M and W. Smart features such as strategically placed stretch inserts or tight-fitting elasticated cuffs provide you with the freedom of movement you need when moving both your arms and legs.

You can find such smart features in any Maier Sports product designed for cross-country skiing and other winter sports. For example, the Telfs CC Pants M and W feature lightweight PrimaLoft® insulation materials at the front and breathable thermoelastic materials in the back, which help with getting rid of excess heat and moisture. And in addition to that, these comfortable elasticated pants feature a tight fit to offer great freedom of movement.

You’re looking for something even more sporty? Then try some cross-country tights like our Telfs CC Tight M and W. If they’re not warm enough for your liking, you can always wear some women’s Telfs Shorts with PrimaLoft® padding or men’s Telfs Bermudas on top of them.

Great functionality is very important to us, but our most important promise to you is this: You will find clothes that fit you perfectly!
