We are one team with one passion! To support all outdoor people with safety!
"Peace of mind is our state of art"
As an enthusiastic water and mountain sports enthusiast, I am in the fortunate position of being able to turn my hobby into my profession - and to put all products through their paces myself. First of all I worked for over 22 years as managing director of the leading travel agency for water sports tourism (surf-action.com / kitereisen.com).
There we developed safety systems as a service for our sport center partners, which prevent small accidents from becoming big problems.
In about 13 years of development time, a universal and global safety system has been created, which now covers so many areas of application even outside of outdoor sports that it has been operating as a separate company since 2014.
This enables us to respond even better to the wishes of our customers and to develop tailor-made solutions, which by 2020 will already be in use on all 7 continents and in over 100 countries.

I am Uli and the man behind the scenes. My job is to develop and guarantee the 1000 % security of the software to our system.
For more than two decades I have been working in software development, design and architecture. Also my long experience in SRE and Cloud helps us at Protegear to keep the systems running reliably.
Especially in the area of personal security a high availability of IT systems is essential. It should not be possible that someone is in danger but the emergency cannot be reported because an IT system is not working. For this reason, we have set ourselves the goal of constantly improving our system and increasing its stability.
It's fun to think about how we can recognize and report dangerous situations even better. Because that is our goal: to recognize the danger, even if the person himself can no longer act. Our system takes care of you! In the team we develop ideas which are then implemented in development and hopefully can help to save lives.

My name is Dominik and I'm happy to advise you on all topics concerning Digital Safety - Tracking and Rescue Systems.
Being active outside is my passion. On the road bike, on foot in the mountains or with the Kite above me in the water.
I love being outside! Nature offers numerous possibilities to get active and keep fit.
When doing sports you always have to be aware of a certain risk! Often the dangerous things give you the biggest kick, make you feel unbeatable! But for what price?
Here the safety aspect plays a very important role for me. Everybody should be aware that even small accidents can quickly lead to a big catastrophe.
That's why I have made it my goal to support every athlete in his activities and to give him a certain feeling of safety.
Through my studies as an industrial engineer, I am able to deal with many topics at ProteGear.
From theoretical development at the desk to practical testing, I feel it is my responsibility to put all our products through their paces.
I am happy to share all my experience with you and all outdoor people!
