As in the past years, in coollaboration with our partner Meingast, we are supplier of one of the most important event of the Alpine Ski World Cup circuit: SPM poles and safety materials are used for Downhill, Super G and Slalom races in the Hahnenkamm (Kitzbühel).

Here are a few numbers about the 79th edition of this legendary race:

103 km/h, the average speed reached by the athletes
140 km/h, the max speed reached
1:51:58, record race by Fritz Strobl in ’97
85%, the Maximal angle
640, SPM slalom poles used for the 3 races

Can you guess how many km of safety nets are used for the DH race?
