The past World Cup season has been memorable not only for some outstanding competitions, but also for the ski industry brands that have demonstrated their excellence and underscored the substantial support they provide for the FIS disciplines.

The Austrian ski manufacturer Fischer is once again the most successful brand in cross-country skiing. Topping all rankings, including distance and sprint for ladies and men, the global market leader in Nordic skiing has earned the honor for the seventh consecutive year since the standings have been in place. Among the many athletes racing on Fischer equipment are Marit Bjoergen, Therese Johaug, and Dario Cologna.

In the overall rankings Fischer is followed by the French ski and snowboarding brand Rossignol, and the Norwegian ski equipment manufacturer Madshus.

In the FIS alpine brand ranking, Head dominated the scene in the overall standings, combining ladies’ and men’s results, to come out on top for the fourth consecutive year. The sports equipment and clothing company also topped the men’s standings with first places in downhill, super G and giant slalom.

On the ladies’ side, Rossignol is the number one brand closely followed by Head and Atomic.

While athletes such as Maria-Hoefl Riesch, Anna Fenninger and Aksel Lund Svindal raced on Head ski equipment, Lara Gut, Henrik Kristoffersen and Christof Innerhofer were, among others, supported by Rossignol.
