In 1993 the Hangloose shop in Vienna was started by Robert in the Favoriten pedestrian zone. It quickly got around that special advice was offered by expert staff there. Hangloose originally concentrated on selling snowboards and other fun sports items, but in the course of time it has grown steadily due to the love of its owner for many other casual sports. Soon the shop became too small for the large number of satisfied customers, so it was relocated to Columbusgasse to accommodate an even larger range of sports and fashion items. However, these premises quickly became too small, too.
Since 2002 Hangloose has been located in Vienna’s fourth district, directly opposite the Theresianum and next to the Taubstummengasse U1 station. On a space of 400m2 everything a sports enthusiast desires is presented. Over the years, Hangloose has developed into THE BOARDING POINT of the city. Whether snowboarders, freeskiers, kiters, windsurfers, wingsurfers or surfers, the sales team consists exclusively of people who live their sport and its associated lifestyle. That is why at Hangloose you will always find someone who knows what he is talking about and whose expertise you can rely on. This is what makes Hangloose so special.
