Solving real world problems

Early on in Klaus Obermeyer's life he studied mechanical and aeronautical engineering. His interest in how things work created an awareness and curiosity which is still with him today. An insatiable appetite for improving already existing fabrications and problem solving lead him to start Sport Obermeyer. There were times when creating innovative firsts was quite easy; as Klaus fondly recalls – "It was easy to create firsts because there was nothing back then." Today he is in wonder of the ever changing world of technology – he is encouraged at the pace and sophistication of material science, manufacturing techniques, and hydrophobic coatings, lamination and insulation. The recent advent of stretch integration in the weaving process has created a more dynamic product which is supple, lightweight, and comfortable. "Life is dynamic and always changing, we should embrace innovation with open arms."
