EKI Lenhart GmbH was a spin off from the wood processing plant of Karl Lenhart created in Dettingen under Teck in 1948, which produced the wooden letters for lettering used by bakeries or butchers. LEKI's unique development started as a result of the founders' personal dissatisfaction: Karl Lenhart, an avid skier himself, was less than impressed by the quality and functionality of the ski poles of the time. Therefore, he used his own machine park to manufacture grips and baskets for skiing poles. These went into mass production in the 60s. On the other hand, Lenhart was familiar with aluminium and composite processing on account of his aircraft manufacturing experience. In 1970, he used these raw materials to produce his first ski poles to be sold under the LEKI brand, which stands for the owners and the company headquarters, i.e. Lenhart in Kirchheim.
LEKI is now known as the global leader in the ski, run and hike categories and has been the official pole of the Broken Arrow Skyrace since 2016.

Tailwind was started by endurance athletes in Durango, CO who have ridden Paris-Brest-Paris, RAAM qualifiers, Leadville 100s, and a host of other events. These riders tried everything on the market to deal with stomach distress, cramping, and that sickly off-taste from ingesting artificial ingredients and chemicals found in other drinks. Nothing worked.
So, they created our own drink, Tailwind. They started sharing it with anyone who wanted to give it a try and people liked it. REALLY liked it. We think that you'll like it too, so give it a try! All you need, all day. Really.

A good beer has a unique ability to bring friends and family together in a way that few other things can. It can also be a perfect ending to a good day, to a bad day, to a run, to a day on the mountain, or a day at the beach. There's no shortage of opportunities to crack open a beer in Northern California. Best Day Brewing has come to realize that runners don't always want beer to slow them down. Life is chockful of moments that deserve a great craft beer, but not the booze.
With this in mind, Best Day started their pursuit of creating a great tasting genuine craft beer, that also happened to be non-alcoholic. After years of iterations, development, and investment in state-of-the-art technology they've created a lineup of truly great non-alcoholic beers which they can hang their hat on. Their beer is brewed as a full-on craft beer using only the finest ingredients. Alcohol is then gently removed using state-of-the-art technology, maintaining all the subtle flavors and aromas.
Best Day beers are packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory polyphenols which help your body recover and support your immune system. They're also loaded with vitamins and minerals, and contain only a fraction of the calories (45 to 85) of regular beer.
