As noted, every single one in Women’s Top 10 in 2018–19 FIS Cross-Country World Cup was competing with Swix Triac poles. 10-0 for the Norwegian company’s racing department & marketologists!
But we can’t but wonder why things are so different in Men’s Top?
The virtual “Constructors’ Cup” in poles department in 2018–19 went to Leki!
Three Norwegian starts, Johannes Høsflot Klæbo ( Number 1 in overall standings), Simen Hegstad Krüger ( 4) and Didrik Tønseth ( 5) use HRC Max poles from Kirchheim unter Teck which happens in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.
The second place was taken by Swix
Alexander Bolshunov ( 2) Emil Iversen (6) and Sergey Ustiugov ( 10) use the Norwegian
The third place was earned by KV+: Sjur Røthe (3) and Martin Johnsrud Sundby (9) run using the Swiss Tornado+ poles
Francesco De Fabiani (7) uses Salomon and Federico Pellegrino (8) – Rossignol
