THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND VAN DEER-Red Bull Sports
In our world all skiers are equal. We want everyone to have access to the world’s best ski equipment, regardless of age, experience, and what kind of skiers they are: powder junkies, ski tourers, racers – you’re all at home at VAN DEER-Red Bull Sports.
Whether you’re a youngster going into your first FIS race or an established podium racer in the World Cup – your race skis are identically constructed; and they are handmade from the exact same high-end materials in our (manu)factory in Austria.
In everything we do we are ready to go the extra mile: We choose small, individual series rather than large-scale production. We prefer top-quality, locally sourced Austrian raw materials over less expensive imported components.
We leave our skis in the press longer because we know the bonding will be better. And we make sure that every single ski that leaves our factory gets a genuine Race Room finish according to Marcel Hirscher’s very own World Cup standards.
From our Junior and Race skis all the way down to our Freeride and Touring skis, we are proud to claim that each model has been developed and personally approved by Marcel Hirscher, eight-time overall World Cup winner.
