The fastest Italian female biathlete
Karin started competing in biathlon in 2004. A bronze medal winner at the Sochi Winter Games in 2014, a bronze medalist at the 2013 world championships and also double bronze medal winner at the 2015 world championships, Karin is a veteran member of the Italian team.
Currently on maternity leave from the circuit, Karin will be back for the 2017-2018 season.
A source of family inspiration
Karin explains that she draws her inspiration from her father who took part in the Paralympic Games in several disciplines, as well as numerous world championships, and who has always remained positive and enthusiastic despite the difficulties created by his disability.
"Julbo products always allow me to look stylish whatever the activity. The best quality sunglasses out there!"
Pro Team - A special series to shine at the highest level!
To support Julbo athletes in the major sporting competitions of winter 2017-2018, we've created a special series. Thanks to dynamic graphics and carefully chosen color combinations, we'll take our heroes and heroines to new heights and help their medal dreams come true. The contrasting colors of the helmet, goggles and sunglasses are symbolic of the transition from shade to light, evoking both our photochromic lens technologies and our competitors' quest for glory.
They also mean you'll easily spot Karin Oberhofer on the screen or on the course!
