OK, perhaps not ONLY black but on the whole Henry Ford's famous adage is applicable: that true work of art and engineering, top ski boots could only be ordered in 1 (one) color palette.

And money needed for that modern-day marketing without which nothing quite works. Cross country skiing as a sport has two distinct paths: adopt to the modern world – or slowly fade away and die out. The most logical path out of the dark hole is a synergy. As in “ joining forces in research, marketing, promotion etc." Here's what we believe is the first true step in that direction – and a big one too. Welcome to the unveiling-of-cooperation event…

Especially when the new items are put on display against that gorgeous ( and uber-fancy) backdrop of Swiss Davos. Without further ado - here's what we spotted on the trails of Davos Nordic: Skis [caption id="attachment_9669" align="aligncenter" width="1920"] Quite possibly the biggest novelty on the WC stage: Sandra Schützová premiers Kästle skis.
