Megasport S.A is the official distributor of ROSSIGNOL in Spain, Andorra and Portugal. Rossignol is a world-renowned brand in the winter sports industry. Founded in 1907 by Abel Rossignol, a visionary snow sports lover, who started manufacturing skis by hand in Voiron, a small village in the French Alps. At the time, skis were primarily a means of wooden transportation and production was limited.
As the popularity of skiing grew in the 1920s, Rossignol established itself as a leading brand in the industry. The company continued to innovate and experiment with new materials and manufacturing techniques. In the 1930s, Rossignol introduced the first metal skis, which offered improved performance and durability.
Rossignol's growth was interrupted during World War II, as ski production was halted due to material shortages. However, after the war, the brand resumed its activity and focused on expanding internationally. Rossignol became a reference in the world of skiing, especially in the Winter Olympic Games, where numerous athletes relied on its products to achieve sporting glory.
In the decades that followed, Rossignol continued to evolve and adapt to market demands. In the 1960s, the brand introduced the first automatic release binding, revolutionizing ski safety. In the 1970s, Rossignol pioneered the development of fiberglass and plastic skis, which allowed for greater lightness and control.
In the 1990s, Rossignol expanded its product line to include snowboards, boots and technical apparel. It also acquired complementary brands, strengthening its market position. The company continued to invest in research and development, collaborating with athletes and designers to create innovative products that improved on-snow performance.
Today, Rossignol offers a wide range of products for alpine skiing, freeride skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding, from clothing, equipment and accessories for beginner skiers to high-performance items used by elite athletes. What sets Rossignol apart from other brands is its focus on constant innovation. The company invests in research and development to create products that enhance the athlete's experience. From advanced construction technologies to aerodynamic designs, Rossignol is at the forefront of the industry, ensuring that skiers and snowboarders have the most up-to-date and efficient equipment.
In addition to its commitment to technical excellence, Rossignol also cares about style and aesthetics. The excellence of its ski equipment is coupled with the brand's strong commitment to sports fashion and design.
