RECORD SPEED CLIMBER NOW POWERED BY THE SUN
Goal Zero has been busy putting together one of the most badass teams in the outdoor industry lately. After adding Andy Lewis just a few short weeks ago they are now partnering up with alpine speedster and all-around hard man Ueli Steck. If you don’t remember Steck check out this video to jog your memory.
SALT LAKE CITY – January 30, 2013 – Goal Zero, the leader in portable solar power solutions, welcomes professional speed climber, solo climber and record-setting alpinist Ueli Steck as its newest brand ambassador.
With his incredible record of solo ascents and speed climbs, and a career that spans almost 20 years, Steck is known for his passionate devotion to all things alpine. He lives beyond the means of any normal man, usually scaling the side of Everest. Since his lifestyle takes him thousands of feet above sea level, and any wall plug for that matter, Steck relies on his Goal Zero Solar Panels and Rechargers to keep his gear charged up and ready to go.
“My Sherpa 50 Solar Recharging Kit helps me stay connected with the world,” says Steck. “As a pro climber, I have to keep people updated on where I am and what I’ll be dong next. With Goal Zero, I never have to worry about running out of power.”
Goal Zero’s growing list of ambassadors ranges from slackliners to anglers, photographers to alpinists. The company searches for athletes and individuals with a passion for living life to its fullest with zero regrets, zero boundaries, and zero apathy. Steck embodies the Goal Zero way of life in every way possible
“We are excited to bring such an accomplished athlete to the Goal Zero Team,” says James Atkin, the Director of Community Marketing at Goal Zero. “Ueli Steck’s lifestyle is exactly what Goal Zero is all about and being able to solar power his lifestyle is definitely an honor.”
