In addition to the paragliding and kitesurfing branches of the company,
skywalk is now involved with an extraordinary flight adventure of a slightly
different kind: The X-GLOO-Event Tent branch is now the sponsor of the BMX

X-GLOO, the Event Equipment branch of skywalk is now the sponsor of the young BMX AIR TEAM. BMX racing has been an Olympic discipline since the 2008 Peking Summer Olympic Games and now continues to impress spectators of every age group, in Germany as well. Through their promotion of young talent in BMX racing, the tent manufacturer X-GLOO becomes a strong corporate social responsibility partner and shows accountable entrepreneurial behavior.

„It is important to us that our social environment shares in the success of our enterprise“, according to Thomas Allertseder, CFO of skywalk.
“After all, we do not exist on an island, but within a functioning social structure. We see a competent partner in the BMX AIR TEAM through their promotion of young talent in extreme sport that fits well with our young, dynamic enterprise and our products.”

Only those who can combine courage, highest concentration and perfect body control will experience success in this extreme sport. Whether in the „Race“ discipline or in the six „freestyle“ disciplines, BMX is always about spectacular flying: new tricks, faster, lighter, higher, more technically accomplished – attributes that the X-GLOO product development team focuses on daily. Thus, BMX and X-GLOO are now on the same team, since the same boldness for new, innovative and light cloth designs, patents and high technological demands for quality has assured the success of X-GLOO.

„BMX is currently one of the „hottest“ competitive sports in Germany. It combines coolness and fun with performance” says Everhard Uphoff, Head of Sales and Marketing of X-GLOO. „We fit together perfectly with our innovative Event Equipment. Our Event Tents also stand for Lifestyle, Fun and
highest quality – simply said, a dream team!“

The BMX AIR TEAM gains a strong partner for its professional promotion of young talent with the manufacturer of the X-GLOO light-construction tent system. The race sport team uses the inflatable X-GLOO tent as a base station at numerous national and international competitions: Compiegne, France in April, Prague, Czech Republic in May, Winterthur, Switzerland and Birmingham, England in
June and so on. For the BMX AIR TEAM Branding, the X-GLOO is not only a calm escape from the hubbub of the competition scene, it is also an effective eye-catcher.

„We were impressed by the simple setup and uncomplicated stabilisation system for any surface.“ cites Francisco Bähr, founder and CEO of the BMX AIR Racing Team. „We are underway all over the
world, in all kinds of weather and the X-GLOO Igloo tent fits our needs perfectly: it packs small into the backpack, is light, weather-proof and can be setup by one person in only ten minutes – we are excited to have secured X-GLOO as our partner!”

With their engagement in BMX Race Sport, X-GLOO shows that small and medium-sized businesses can be aware of their social responsibility as well.

Constructed from ripstop nylon, the X-GLOO Event Tent is water-repellent, UV-resistant and fulfills the CPAI-84 fire protection norm. The X-GLOO Tent is also available in the color-bound X-Act variation, consisting of a black Matrix with silver Side Wall Elements, and in the X-Pert variation, available in a large variety of color combinations. The Outer Walls of the X-Pert can be individually

There are practically no creative limits, and it is exactly this that our customers appreciate. The light construction tent system can be quickly closed by zipper with Entrance, Window and Side-Walls, so that wind and cold stay outside. You can easily expand the covered area with a
