On Sunday, July 7, one of the world’s toughest adventure races started – Redbull X-Alps. The concept is simple: athletes test their endurance by racing from Salzburg to Monaco, over 1000 kilometres, by foot or paraglider. Some athletes will hike over 100km a day!
Possibly their most important piece of equipment, Red Bull X-Alps athletes are equipped with a Pieps Global Finder – an Iridium Connected GPS tracking and messaging device. This device, rugged enough to withstand punishing conditions, will make the race safer for athletes and make it possible to track their progress.
