Most Used Skis by Cross Country Pro Skiers

We run a database of skiers and their equipment. Looking at the table we get a pretty clear view of brands pro skiers use most. I do not say that using the same skis like Bjorn Daehlie make you as a good skier as he is. But at least you will get a good feeling that you have the same brand like he.

We looked at the top 50 skiers in Cross Country skiing as of 24th of January 2017 as published by International Ski Federation. We calculated the brand numbers separately for men and women just to make totals at the end.

The number of brands used by cross country skiers is small. Just 6 brands all together in ladies and men’s top 48 show that concentration is big. It is not easy for brands to compete in this almost oligopoly market.What we saw in a separate table for men and women is confirmed in summary table. Fischer is an absolutely dominant player between cross country pro skiers. Rossignol stands at the second place mainly thanks to the strong position between ladies cross country pro skiers. Salomon due their weaker position on women ski tracks ranks third, with Madshus watching them closely from fourth place. Atomic ranks safely in fifth place, with Peltonen closing the rankings.
