Winning gold in all three alpine skiing disciplines at the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d’Ampezzo, nabbing 3 world championship titles two years later, Toni Sailer was known as the first great pop star of skiing. Retired from competition at an early age, he remained a great ambassador for his sport through his involvement in his home town of Kitzbuhel and around the globe.

Toni Sailer is more than a name and a brand. It is a universe, with values in style, craftsmanship and innovation. A world of elegance, performance and fashion. Toni Sailer is geared towards skiers, who not only desire protective functions and comfortable materials, but also demand exclusive aesthetics. The collection is available through the best specialty retailers with well informed and knowledgeable staff.
