Tour de Suisse and Glatz – two original Swiss entities
4. August 2021









“We are very proud to be able to accompany the Tour de Suisse as an official sponsoring partner. After all we have a lot in common: Swiss tradition, endurance and resilience, wind and sun as well as the constant striving for top performance,” explains Goris Verburg, Managing Director of the Frauenfeld parasol manufacturer Glatz.

Glatz has been manufacturing sunshades of the highest quality and durability for over 125 years, offering individual shade solutions to garden owners as well as restaurateurs and hoteliers. These include special sizes made to measure and innovative accessories such as LED lighting or remote control options.

And while the cyclists are trying to adapt as aerodynamically and flexibly as possible to wind conditions during the race, the sunshades from Glatz, which have been extensively wind-tunnel tested, remain stable in all conditions.

Shady respite after the Tour
Those who cycle in the sun must protect their skin with sunscreen. Anyone enjoying the shade beneath the Aura, Alexo, Fortello, Sunwing Casa or other models from Glatz, is also protected from up to 98 percent of UV rays thanks to the fabric of the umbrella canopy. And not only that – the high-quality, stable sunshades also withstand the rain.

Until next time
Glatz once again extends its warmest wishes to all participants of this year’s Tour, congratulates the winners and hopes that the athletes who are already preparing for the Tour de Suisse 2022 train well and enjoy success. We are looking forward to being a sponsor again next year.
