Manufacturer Standings - Head, Salomon (??) and then Atomic !

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I know, the its still early in the season but the WC results are interesting. Salomon's racers are outperforming Atomic's racers. I thought that Salomon had all but given up on racing and was focusing on the freestyle/park ski market.

 

Rank/Brand/Points (as reported on FIS website)

 

1 Head 1980.00

 

2 Salomon 940.00

 

3 Atomic 635.00

 

4 Rossignol 490.00

 

5 Nordica 340.00

 

6 Fischer 305.00

 

7 Voelkl 200.00

 

8 Dynastar 105.00

Uh....  Salomon and Atomic are the same company now.  The Salomon race skis ARE Atomics.

Does Salomon make their own "branded" Atomic ski?  Like how Look/Rossi are the exact same binding but with a different brand on them.

Well, racing sure does not equate to U.S. sales, that is for sure. You could almost inverse that list to get retail SALES standings.

Salomon = Atomic when it comes to race skis to all intents and purposes. Check the 2V Equipes on the race circuit - they've all go the D2 deck.

 

Same with Dynastar = Rossi. Easy "proof" here are the slant-nose SLs with identical dimensions.

 

If you lump Salomon and Atomic together, they're not far behind Head.

Interesting. I had thought that I had seen more Salomon skis this year.

Except for this what this thread is for ;) In this case, Atomic is not Salomon. Atomic has their own group of athletes, and they pay for them, while Salomon has their own, separate and not connected group of athletes which gets financed from Salomon found. So skis are same, but Salomon athletes have nothing to do with Atomic, and same goes for opposite, Atomic athletes have nothing to do with Salomon.
