Petter Northug, Norwegian cross-country skier, World & Olympic champion and much more...with a little help from Alpina ELITE 2.0 cross-country skiing boots, well prepared waiting for a new season & World Championship in Lahti 2017.
“I contacted Alpina because they are passionate about ski boots. They work diligently and continuously to develop better products, which is something you notice when you have ski boots on your feet for up to 30 hours a week,” said Petter.
Northug and Alpina have worked together previously, resulting in a total of 11 World Championships and Olympic gold medals. Northug’s switch is part of his preparations for an important season, with the World Championships in Lahti in February 2017 as the highlight.
Not only Petter Northug, a number of top athletes, like Finn Haagen Krogh, Anders Gløersen, Niklas Dyrhaug, Eirik Brandsdal, Charlotte Kalla and Johan Olsson, compete on Alpina boots and we are very proud on it.
Together towards new victories.
