I sère-based ski manufacturer Rossignol will be teaming up with CEA Tech over the next fi ve years on R&D to improve the brand’s current products and come up with new ones. Researchers at Leti and Liten are already working on connected sensors and materials for the manufacturer. This major partnership has already mobilized some 30 Rossignol staff ers; ultimately, Rossignol’s entire R&D department will be involved, bringing the number to around 60. The innovations developed under the program will be tested by professional skiers.
Over the past several years sporting goods manufacturers like Decathlon, Babolat, Petzl, Lafuma, and Corima have turned to CEA Tech to boost their R&D. This latest R&D partnership is once again proof that CEA Tech technologies are relevant to the sporting goods industry.
