Welcome back, Clymbers. It’s Thursday and already Clymb HQ is abuzz with anticipation about this weekend’s shin-dig to celebrate our reaching one million members. Will a colleague surprise all with his or her unforgettable dance moves? Will there be scandal? All water-cooler bets on these matters will soon be resolved in a shower of free alcohol, awesome music, and shameless self-congratulation. We couldn’t have gotten here without you though, which is why the deals will keep coming and continue to get sweeter. The weekend isn’t upon us yet but there’s plenty for everyone to be excited about with today’s events.
Here’s what we’ve got going on:
prAna: With a name appropriately based on the ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life, and vitality of the spirit, prAna designs apparel for mindful recreationists who seek to explore the limits of their own energy through yoga and interactions with the natural world. For prAna athletes like Chris Sharma, climbing is a thing of meditation, not conquest. Seek balance in your life and your adventure kit with prAna Men’s and Women’s apparel (tees, hats, hoodies, and more), and accessories (towels, satchels, cadets, and more), on sale today at The Clymb.
Craft: In the beginning, Craft founder Anders Bengtsson spent an inordinate amount of time looking at his underwear. After heavy exercise sessions outside his home in Borås, Sweden, Bengstsson would weigh his skivvies and use a moisture gauge to measure how sweaty they were. He used his research to develop the ideal layer to wear next to the skin—a garment that transports moisture outwards with as little absorption into the fibers as possible. The resulting brand, Craft, is now a global leader in all types of peak-performance athletic apparel. Today on The Clymb we’re celebrating yet another example of Swedish ingenuity with Men’s and Women’s Craft cycling, running, and fitness apparel, including baselayers, jackets, shorts, bibs, gloves, socks, singlets, and much more.
CELSIUS: The founders behind San Diego-based CELSIUS launched the brand in 2003 with one simple goal: to translate the comfort and feel of their favorite skate shoes to performance footwear designed for the shred. Nearly a decade later, the company has built a strong community and developed a reputation for blending substance, style, and comfort. In 2009, CELSIUS was honored with a Boot of the Year award from Snowboard magazine. Award-winning, homegrown boots? On the cheap? Don’t miss out. Today on The Clymb we’ve got Men’s and Women’s CELSIUS snowboard boots.
Salomon: The mighty Dolomite Mountain region in northern Italy is a renowned alpine mecca for skiers, mountain bikers, BASE jumpers, hikers, climbers, and peak-peepers of all shapes and sizes. But it’s also known for something else: socks. Salomon performance socks are designed and knitted in the Dolomites, where testing product is as fun as it is productive. Today on The Clymb we’re happy to offer a little taste of outdoor Italy, with Salomon Men’s and Women’s performance run, bike and snow socks, on sale now.
MEDITATE ON THIS: Did you know? During the humble beginnings of prAna (now a multi-million dollar company), the founders cut and sewed clothing in their garage and shipped it to customers in surplus fruit boxes gathered from the local grocery store. They made hashtags from a concoction of oil and ground-up old newspapers that they then cut it into shape with a pizza cutter. And their first employee slept on a hinged bed that by day doubled as a shipping table.
