HI-TEC is 100% confident there is no better way to put their ion mask HPi footwear to the test than by supplying Martin Dreyer, one of South Africa’s most respected multi-sport athletes and adventure racers, with the latest in hydrophobic HPi trail running footwear – V-Lite Infinity Pro!
HI-TEC fully support Martin’s latest project the “Change a Life” program and has supplied the V-Lite Infinity Pro to him and his team who compete in the Dusi Canoe marathon. This is no ordinary challenge. Martin hand picked his team from rural villages in Natal where they all were essentially cattle herders and never had any experience in a boat or canoe.
Born in 1968, Martin was your typical White River plaasjapie whose secondary school years at Woodridge College in Port Elizabeth did nothing to dampen his passion for the outdoors. He spent more energy on hang-gliding, underwater hockey, climbing, lifesaving, running and scuba diving at UTC than he did on studies. In 1993, armed with a BCom degree, Martin took off for the West Coast of Canada and spent the next six years enduring the hardships of commercial fishing in the icy cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. That experience taught him many new skills and life lessons, but most of all the dawning realisation that there had to be more to life!
HI-TEC have signed an exclusive sponsorship deal with Martin whose accolade of achievements include Land Rover G4 World Champion, 7 times Dusi Canoe Marathon Champion and top international adventure racer competing in the Raid Finals & Adventure Racing World Championships, to name a few!!
