Thanks to the inventiveness of its creator, the company gradually established itself as one of the international leaders in ski bindings before becoming one of the most innovative ski and ski boot manufacturers in the world.

Many innovations in the world of winter sports are to be credited to this company. In 1948, the very first cable binding was produced in the company's workshops. In 1957, the skade (safety stop) revolutionized skiing for all winter sports enthusiasts. A key step was taken with the appearance of the lift, a unique binding system that quickly replaced the traditional leather straps. Once again, the brand played a major role in the evolution of the ski world thanks to its regular technical innovations.

Another key moment in the history of the brand occurred in 1966, with the appearance of the self-releasing heel binding. The company took advantage of the Alpine World Skiing Championships in Portillo, Chile, to test this new technology at the highest level with undeniable success. During this period, the company took the opportunity to develop an extensive network of subsidiaries throughout Switzerland, Germany and Austria.


During the 1970s, the brand continued its irresistible rise to become the world's number one in ski bindings. At the same time, the brand developed a range of clothing, ski boots and mountain accessories that was to enjoy the same popularity. After several acquisitions, notably by Adidas in 1997, the Salomon brand finally joined the Amer Sports group in 2005. Whatever their level of experience, ski lovers can be sure to find a pair of new or used skis from this manufacturer that meets their expectations.

Present in over 160 countries and having made mountain sports its main credo, the brand is still a reference for millions of skiers. Whether it's SALOMON used skis, SALOMON ski boots or its range of clothing dedicated to the practice of mountain sports, the quality of its products has earned it a high level of trust from skiers all over the world. Having always been at the forefront of innovation in the ski industry, the brand was notably consecrated in 2013 when it was awarded the Best Overall Sli Manufacturer prize at the World Snow Awards ceremony.
