VAIL, Colo.—August 26th, 2022—SYNC Performance, provider of technical apparel, protective ski race equipment, and travel bags based in Vail, Colo, announces today the SYNC Junior Team partnerships for the 2022/23 season.

SYNC Performance is excited to announce that the SYNC Junior Team will now be supported by Oakley and The Feed for the 2022/23 season. To ensure our athletes have everything they need to perform at their best we created a partnership that outfits these athletes from head to toe while also helping them fuel properly for race day. With both partners bringing a unique ability to support a SYNC Team Athlete's performance on race day, we thought these brands would be the perfect complement to the race gear that SYNC provides. Each SYNC Team Athlete will be supplied an Oakley helmet and goggles along with a quarterly supply of nutritional supplements from the Feed.

Geof Ochs, SYNC Performance President + CEO had this to say about the partnership: 

"We are extremely grateful to be partnering with two like-minded brands, The Feed and Oakley, in an effort to support our SYNC Team with the resources they need to be successful at their highest level of skiing. Partnering with brands has long been a strategy for SYNC and I couldn't be happier these two performance-oriented and athlete-centric brands are coming on board for this season. We can't wait to see what the future unfolds for the SYNC Team and these young athletes." 

Parker Biele, SYNC Performance Athlete Manager also expressed her excitement for the addition of these two new partners: 

“We are so lucky to have Oakley and The Feed partner with us for the SYNC Team this year. We are always looking to elevate the game for our athletes and by adding new partnerships they are getting even more support to succeed.”

Everyone at SYNC Performance cannot wait to see this partnership develop throughout the season and are looking forward to watching these athletes thrive with the support of these two like minded brands. By supporting athletes at this level in their development The Feed and Oakley are helping create a stronger development pipeline and a better sport for the future.


The Feed is a great resource to get all the nutrition, performance supplements, and recovery gear SYNC Team athletes need to get more out of their training. One of the many reasons we chose to partner with The Feed is that it gives our athletes the ability to build a nutritional package specific to their personal needs. 

Oakley has been a longtime supporter of ski racing in the US and a perfect brand fit for young athletes looking to make their mark on the sport. Oakley has been focused for decades on optical performance and their new line of helmets are trusted by some of the sport's biggest stars including Lucas Braathen and Aleksander Kilde.
