Top performances in cold and ice: Eberspächer promotes the sport of luge


Precision, performance and passion: When the athletes enter the ice canal on their luge, maximum performance is required. The enthusiasm of athletes and fans warms the heart: just one of the many reasons why Eberspächer has supported luge as an active partner of the FIL (International Luge Federation) for over twenty years. The motivation for such top performances consists of motivation, innovation and continuous technical development. This also applies to Eberspächer's products.

Ideally adjusted for best performance

Hot and cold: emotion meets precision, just like with products from Eberspächer. Whether heating in winter or cooling in summer, Eberspächer thermal management solutions raise the bar when it comes to comfort and safety. The ideal technical adjustment to the highest requirements enables top performance. As in luge, so in mobility.

It’s not surprising that Eberspächer holds the title sponsorship of the FIL Luge World Cup Series since 2020 and therefore emphasizes the value of reliable partnerships. Whether the athletes in the ice track, the team behind the stars or the fans on the sidelines – the passion for winter sports unites them. Eberspächer maintains partnerships with top international athletes even after their active careers, as an innovator or brand ambassador, including winter sports legend Georg Hackl.
