This is an oversimplification, but in the 1960's the mainstream American skis were Head Standards, Vectors, and Vector Competitions, but not many racers used them, racers were mostly on Kastle or Kneissl both wood and metal. Atomic was marketing as Rohrmoser, Rossignol had a model called the Coutet, and Ehrbacher, Sohler and others had a toehold on the race scene too. The late 60's saw the Kastle Fiberplast and Toni Sailer "Fiberglaski". In the '70s the Dynamic VR17 and Rossi Strato took over. Killy was on the VR's but I also saw him on Dynastar MV2 Equipes. Volkl started with the Zebras and Tigers around then and Spalding had the Sideral and Formidable made by someone in Italy all of which had success in racing. When K2 started up a lot of the US team was using them. I'm not really all that old but I just was a gearhead from a real young age.
