Halti is the Official Sponsor for the Finnish Ski Association and we provide the clothing for the Finnish national ski teams of Cross-Country, Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined. The co-operation started in the season 2017/2018 so we have had some time to develop the race suits and other clothing to fit the teams’ needs. The World Cup season kicks off at the end of November and our Finnish national teams will be wearing brand new race suits with blue and white colors.
The new race suit for the Cross-Country and Nordic Combined teams is called “Liekki” which means “Flame” in Finnish. It’s very light, highly breathable and full of details which help the athletes perform their best. One of the new innovations is laser-cut ventilation in the back which lets the sweat out and keeps the athlete dry and feeling good during the race. On the design side, snow and ice flakes have been the inspiration behind the pattern seen in the arms and legs.
In addition to the race suits, all the Halti clothes worn by the national ski teams are designed in Finland by using an eco-friendly 3D-design program. The world’s top athletes wear, test and give feedback to our product development and this enables us to develop our products even further for the elite skiers as well as the everyday athletes.
