From Peaks to Putts: Inside Peak Performance

Peak Performance & SHARP

Hailing from the most remote Swedish mountains, Peak Performance is renowned for technical sportswear designed to conquer the most demanding action sports — skiing, biking, mountaineering. Even in the decidedly calmer — but no less challenging — environment that is the golf course, Peak Performance is committed to pushing the boundaries of performance without compromising style.

The brand’s latest golf collection drives that home, drawing on traditional golf styles, familiar to purists and casuals alike, which are infused with Peak Performance’s refined Scandinavian aesthetic and contemporary design elements to create forward-thinking pieces for the modern and discerning golfer.

There’s no shortage of golf clothes that look good, nor is there a dearth of performance-driven pieces, but few brands manage to excel at both in the way that Peak Performance does. The brand’s recently launched Spring-Summer 2024 collection manages to enhance both performance and style. It does so in a way that seems inspired by the best golf swings: the pieces are sleek and minimalist, inspired by a long tradition of Scandinavian design that Peak has made its own in recent years. Rather than focus on bold graphics or visual embellishments, Peak has wagered on pairing ergonomic cuts with innovative cotton Coolmax fabric, which offers superior breathability while wicking moisture away from the body. Despite pushing forward in terms of performance, it’s also supremely sustainable in that it’s made from recycled cotton, proving that it’s possible to strive to push things further in one area without compromising another — the fabric equivalent of good off the tee and around the greens.

The new quick-drying fabric is woven into a sharp polo, as well as lightweight piqué shorts.  The popular Player polo gets reworked in a long sleeve version — which always look incredibly sharp and elegant — with taping along the shoulder. A lightweight Wind Anorak is rendered in a cream and white that allows other layers to peek through, while keeping the elements at bay. The ergonomic fit and thoughtfully-placed pockets make it easy to swing without the anorak getting in the way – after all, it’s hard enough to strike the ball in the wet without your anorak working against you. Devoted fans of Peak Performance’s extremely popular Player collection will be pleased to find well-cut pants and shorts crafted from an elastane blend that offers flexibility. The offering is topped off with visors and bucket hats made from lightweight recycled materials that are as stylish as they are functional.

Golf is not the staid, stuffy domain of decades gone by, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no room for performance-driven wares. With a sophisticated palette and smart pops of blue, Peak’s forward-thinking fabrics embody the ethos of modern golf — they’re clothes designed for the course, but fit for life beyond the 18th green. It’s familiar but different, it looks and feels good — and isn’t that the way we all wish we could play?

At the very least we can try and when we do, we’ll be hitting the course wearing Peak’s latest collection, which is now available at
