In 1917 Giuseppe Pronzati, the founder, started Gipron with a group of craftsmen in Milan meeting increasing growth and success. In 1935 he began to produce shoes reinforcements, bindings, climbing crampons and roller skates, with his son Lorenzo. In the recent years, in addition to the renowned trekking, ski, nordic walking and orthopedic lines, Gipron has successfully developed a worldwide-distributed product line of Ultra-trail poles.
