Situated at an altitude of 1,000 metres in the heart of the Chartreuse Massif, the Outdoor Lab at RaidLight is constantly innovating and developing different products, ever lighter and more practical, offering a complete range of equipment for trail runners: shoes, textiles, race vests and packs and accessories.
WHAT IS THE OUTDOOR LAB?
The Outdoor-Lab is at the same time the head office of RaidLight, the place of R&D and innovation as well as the place to share with the trail runners in the heart of the Chartreuse mountains. Our objective is to create a place of exchange between our customers and all our employees (about twenty outdoor enthusiasts) in order to create products that are as close as possible to your expectations.
RaidLight and the Chartreuse jointly created in 2011 the 1st Station de Trail® in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, a concept that RaidLight has since spread to some thirty territories such as the Vercors, the Ecrins, Bures sur Yvettes, in Brittany, creating a network of Trail Stations ...
RaidLight welcomes you in its Trail space 7/7d, in a reception area with information on the marked routes and their technical difficulties, as well as on other tourist activities. Runners can take advantage of the changing rooms (lockers, showers), and we provide Trail equipment to try and test free of charge.
In winter, we also offer ski touring and avalanche victim detection equipment rental to continue training outside in complete safety.
