The History of La Sportiva.
When Narciso Dilladio hand-crafted wooden leather boots for many lumber-jacks and farmers of the Fassa and Fiemme valleys (Dolomites, Italy) after the war, the demand for boots increased obliging Narciso to hire new workers: the good name of “Calzoleria Sportiva” crossed the boarders of the Valleys.
Starting from here the La Sportiva’s history continued to grow and produces in Fiemme Valley boots and shoes for all kind of outdoor activities for climbing and mountaineering, categories in which La Sportiva has the market leadership, to mountain running, trekking and the ski mountaineering market.
Recently the company entered in the ski mountaineering segment and in the apparel market with a complete selection of technical clothes for running, ski mountaineering and climbing. La Sportiva who produces mainly at their headquarters in Ziano di Fiemme, is distributed in more than 70 countries worldwide.

I tried just about every product on the market and couldn’t find anything that just worked. I also discovered that other athletes shared my problems: stomach issues, cramping, unpalatable flavors, and complex regimens of drinks, gels, pills, and chews. Fed up with training for 6 months only to feel bad on race day, I set out to create a fuel that is easy to use all day and solves the nutrition problems. I called the solution Tailwind, and it was my secret weapon for a while. But friends soon caught on, and I started sharing it with fellow Leadville racers and testing with athletes in other sports. Their enthusiasm convinced me we have something to share and could help many more athletes by launching Tailwind Nutrition. Cyclists, runners, XTERRA racers, XC skiers, triathletes, soccer players, hikers, and more have tested it extensively with strong results. I hope you’ll give Tailwind a try and share your story with us! – Jeff Vierling, Founder of Tailwind- Durango CO USA
Tailwind’s potent energy and electrolytes are all you need to go all day. No juggling gels, pills, or chews—just pour, shake, and go.

Most drinks require you to supplement calories and don’t contain anywhere near the electrolytes needed to replace what you sweat out. Tailwind’s fuel can meet your complete calorie needs, and sipping it regularly gives you steady energy all day. Tailwind also has a full complement of electrolytes that mimic the composition and proportions of sweat, so you don’t have to take separate electrolyte pills to make up for what’s not in your drink.
