Nobody is born a World Cup winner. Not even a living legend like Marcel Hirscher, who has won everything there is to win in alpine ski racing, including a record 8 consecutive World Cup titles, 67 World Cup races, 20 crystal trophies, and 14 medals at major events. When you are a young, aspiring ski racer you will find that it takes a lot of hard work, commitment, luck, sweat, and sometimes tears to make it to the top. It also requires a great deal of support from your coaches, family, and friends. And: some kick-ass equipment. That’s where we come in. We want to give you a unique competitive advantage, so we build our Junior Race skis in the same way as our “grown-up” World Cup skis, with the exact same world-class materials and Race Room finish. With us, you don’t get B-grades just because you haven’t reached the age limit and need a shorter ski length. Of course, our SL-JR and GS-JR skis meet all FIS regulations, and they have been developed and approved by Marcel Hirscher.

The VAN DEER way

Our skis are handmade in Austria, from superior materials sourced right
at our doorstep. They are developed, built, tested, and tuned with the
same know-how, meticulousness and obsessive drive for perfection that
helped Marcel Hirscher become who he is today: the greatest alpine skier
of our time.
