Collaborative R&D platform
RaidLight has this intuitive DNA of collaborative design since 1999, thanks to listening to runners, direct discussion with end users on the internet, and a strong presence on the trail. In 2008, RaidLight developed its open innovation and design with users by setting up a collaborative R&D platform.

First Trail Station in the Chartreuse
2014 - Launch of the Made In French Alps production workshop
The desire to re-shore and create a local production facility RaidLight created a textile production facility Using modern technologies, such as laser cutting, thermo-bonding and sublimation printing.
Located in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, this workshop employed a dozen people who manufactured more than 30,000 items per year.
2022 - Responsibility
In 2022, 60% of our products are made using recycled materials. About 10% of our range is manufactured in France.
Our goal: To increase our local production "Made in the French Alps" and 90% of of our products to use recycled materials.
RaidLight's vision for the future is to continue to develop and create technical, innovative and functional products for trail runners of all levels, while focusing our production towards more sustainability and eco-responsibility. Evolve and redevelop the Made In France range. Taking our own advice from our baseline “Share the trail running experience” we will involve customers in our product development through our Open to All Team and continue to develop and be a part of the community of trail runners. All of this will happen in our “human-sized” flexible and dynamic company located in the heart of the Chartreuse mountains.
Looking forward to meeting you on a trail, do not hesitate to come and visit our headquarters and workshop in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse and take time to run through our beautiful mountains surrounding our home.
