Vollebak

Vollebak is the world’s most experimental adventure brand. We create cutting edge experiments and high performance adventure sports clothing using insights and discoveries from fields as diverse as neuroscience, physiology, material technology and space exploration.

_THE MEANING OF VOLLEBAK

Over the last 30 years action and adventure sports athletes have pushed human performance further and faster than at any point in history. Whether jumping off El Capitan or from the edge of space, diving down 100 metres in a pair of speedos, running across deserts, free soloing 3,000ft faces, or riding waves bigger than most buildings, these leaps require extreme commitment. It’s captured in a single word. Vollebak. It’s Flemish for “going all out.” We think of is as a willingness to go past the point that most people consider fun, and into the moments where you find out who you are.

_The athletes behind it

We’re twin brothers, designers, and multisport adventure athletes, training and competing in ultra marathons, adventure races, triathlons, surfing, cycling, skiing, paddleboarding, climbing and kayaking. We’ve run through deserts, raced over mountain ranges and crawled through jungles.

We start with interesting questions, like what can we learn from the military about managing pressure and fear? Is it possible to replicate free divers’ mind control and oxygen efficiency in other sports? Or how do NASA use the psychology of survival? We then combine these with our own insights and experiences. The idea for Condition Black was born inside a cloud while running over a ridge several thousand feet too high up. The Baker Miller Pink Hoodie was designed after yet another sleepless night before a 24 event where we’d need every bit of energy. It’s only by enduring the highs and lows ourselves that we think about the kind of questions that need answering.
