The story began in 1987
As a twelve-year-old junior ski racer, Mike (the later founder of EISENHORN AG) realizes that he needs to build up more strength and muscle mass.

So now he can train whenever he has time and feels like it.

Mike is a perfectionist and not satisfied with the function of his first device. Therefore, during more than 20 years, he constantly builds new devices, sketches ideas and discards them again. The motivation is always his own use. In the same period, he completes his education as a mechanical engineer and founds his own company for product design, engineering and prototyping in 2006.
The second son grows up. He, too, is an enthusiastic skier and successfully competes in his first races. History seems to repeat itself almost 30 years later. It is the motivation for Mike to further develop his equipment concept into a marketable product.
Mike writes the following features, which are most important to him, in his specifications. At this point, no one can imagine how this is supposed to work:

In four years, he builds another seven prototypes. He optimizes his concept in thousands of hours. He relies on intensive exchange with professional athletes, sports doctors and scientists. Thanks to intuition and the pursuit of perfection, something unique emerges.
