KAILAS is a climbing apparel and equipment company founded in 2003, widely recognized as the most innovative and technical outdoor company in China. Many of the products have won important awards, such as ISPO Award and Europe Outdoor Industry Award.
The name KAILAS comes from the name of the holy Tibetan mountain KAILASH, a sacred destination of religious pilgrimage. Every year religious pilgrims make the journey to Mt. KAILASH, following the traditions of their ancestors dating back thousands of years. The rugged terrain, high altitude and harsh weather all contribute to the difficulties of pilgrimage, but those who choose to take it on remain undeterred. The will to complete this spiritual journey is beyond imagination. It is an undertaking that expresses humankind's search for freedom, which is the philosophy and passion KAILAS lives by.
At the core of the KAILAS and TorX partnership lies a dedication to enhancing the performance of athletes and adventurers. By leveraging a collective knowledge and expertise, both companies are committed to developing gear that empowers athletes to unleash their full potential. At KAILAS, we understand the importance of providing participants with reliable, comfortable and durable backpacks that can withstand the challenging terrain of the Tor des Géants race.
KAILAS backpacks are known for the durability, comfort, and style. For instance, the FUGA AIR backpacks are equipped with ADF (All-round Dial Fit) system that ensure an ideal fit for all runners. Additionally, there’re plenty compartments that can accommodate all your essentials such as hydration packs, energy gels, salt tablets, jackets, and more. With KAILAS FUGA AIR backpacks, runners can be confident that their gear will withstand the rigors of the terrain, climate, and other challenges that come with the Tor des Géants race.
