There were hockey baselayers on the market - and that’s about it. In terms of fabrics, fit, craftsmanship, details we saw a huge potential in engineering something better, much better. We founded AYCANE to start a new era: Hockey baselayers, which enhance the performance of the athlete.While other brands invest a lot of time developing hockey skates and sticks, we are focusing on the foundations for success: the 1st layer on the athlete's skin. The baselayer has a huge impact on whether the hockey player overheats while playing or cools down too much, whether he is distracted by moving elbow pads or not, whether he feels comfortable in every split second thanks to the perfect fit or not, etc. Wearing AYCANE baselayers and socks, the athlete can focus on his game - and nothing else.
AYCANE was founded by Nico and Sven Serena, Evelyn Giger, Daniel Giger and the hockey hall of fame legend Peter Forsberg. Before AYCANE the Serena brothers co-owned the ski and golfwear brand KJUS. During their involvement with KJUS they met Evelyn Giger. Combined the AYCANE management team has over 40 years of experience in the sports apparel industry. More about the founders you can findhere

OUR COMMITMENT TO TRANSPARENCY AND SUSTAINABILITY
We have an extensive sustainability section on our website here. We suggest you go through the details there as this topic is vast and profound. Environmental protection is at the core of AYCANE and it has been part of our brand from day one. We focus our effort on re-using materials and circularity. Our ultimate goal is to have a closed loop recycling process for all our products.
We share the information of all our manufacturing partners transparently on our website. Please check out our partners sectionhere in case you are interested in the origin of our products. We are proud to be working with some of the most progressive manufacturers in the world. Not only do they lead the industry with their innovation power but also with their commitment to corporate social responsibility. Most of our products are manufactured in the European Union and the factories have to follow strict guidelines. But also, our partners in other regions of the world are sharing the same passion to provide a safe and fair working environment. All our manufacturing partners follow multiple social responsibility standards and are being audited by an independent organisation on a regular basis. In addition, our team constantly monitors that these commitments are being kept on all levels of business.
We set out to develop the most innovative hockey baselayers and activewear in the industry. To reach our ambitious goals we are partnering with some of the leading manufacturers around the world. Your AYCANE product will always focus on enhancing your performance first and foremost but we also believe that innovation and technical details can come with a lot of style.
We source our materials from suppliers that are innovation leaders in their respective segment. In the partners section of our website here, you can read about our material suppliers. From the beginning we had a strong focus on sustainability besides the functionality of our materials. Our credo is that the performance of our products should not be impacted just because we choose eco-friendly materials. Therefore, you will find all our supplying partners at the helm of innovation but with a firm eye on protecting our environment.
Our goal is to give you as much performance and innovation as possible for a fair price. In order to fulfil this promise we decided to follow a direct to consumer strategy. As a result, AYCANE products are only available on our website. This setup allows us to cut several middle organisations so we can pack more performance, innovation, and sustainability into our products without increasing the market price. We also believe in fair pricing towards our manufacturing partners so they receive their rightful share of profits.
