Subaru logo

With constantly changing weather and landscape that encompasses everything from the sprawling prairies of Saskatchewan to the concrete canyons of Toronto to the imposing majesty of the Canadian Rockies, it makes sense for Subaru to have a strong presence in Canada. In 1976, Canadians got their first exposure to the benefits of Subaru All-Wheel Drive when Subaru Auto Canada Limited (SACL) began offering a full range of vehicles. In 1989, the privately owned SACL was purchased by the Toronto-based Subaru Canada, Inc., who, under the guidance of parent company Fuji Heavy Industries, began an expansion process that would eventually see over 85 Subaru Dealers in operation across the country. The safety, control and performance of the Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive system has since endeared itself to Canadians, who have helped Subaru sales in Canada to reach record heights.

Karl Lenhart, an avid skier himself, was less than impressed by the quality and functionality of the ski poles of the time. Therefore, he used his own machine park to manufacture grips and baskets for skiing poles. These went into mass production in the 60s. On the other hand, Lenhart was familiar with aluminium and composite processing on account of his aircraft manufacturing experience. In 1970, he used these raw materials to produce his first ski poles to be sold under the Leki brand, which stands for the owners and the company headquarters, i.e. Lenhart in Kirchheim. Leki's products are developed and designed together in Kirchheim/Teck, Germany and Tachov, Czech Republic. Poles are manufactured following modern and environmentally friendly processes in Leki's own production facility in the Czech Republic. Leki seeks to operate under one strategic mandate: To combine safety and comfort with attractive design. The permanent exchange with experts and professional athletes ensures a high experience value. In turn, this results in smart, well-designed products, which customers can consistently enjoy and rely upon for years. With over 250 patents, Leki has introduced more innovations and filed more patents than any other manufacturer in the outdoors and ski industry. Today, Leki Lenhart GmbH is broadly recognised as the absolute world leader in pole and glove systems thanks to the consistent implementation of this philosophy.

Seirus distributed by Sport Dinaco, a privately owned company, grew out of 2 guys intent on creating solutions to issues that limited the winter experience of the outdoor enthusiast:

  • One looked to help preserve the boot/binding compatibility for more predictable release while skiing and more comfortable & secure walking on winter surfaces – thus Cat Tracks were created.

  • One wanting to shield his face during frequent trips to the Utah powder – leading to the birth of the Original Masque.

For over 30 years the team at Seirus Innovation has been able to develop cutting edge technologies and products that have proven to be leaders in cold and cool weather essentials.

Seirus carries over 300 products covering five unique categories from gloves and liners to quick and essential equipment. Seirus owns nine patents that cover 25 landmark products.

The drive to create better and more effective goods is at the heart of the Seirus philosophy. With the ever changing sports market, you can rely on Seirus remaining at the forefront of innovation.

Briko’s history dates back to 1985, when the company began producing ski wax for the Italian ski team. In the wake of its athletes' success, Briko soon decides to extend its product range, to include sunglasses, helmets and technical apparel, all designed in cooperation with its sports celebrity endorsers, who were always directly involved in the development of new products. During this evolutionary process, Briko developed numerous technical innovations: one example being the hugely successful Thrama lenses, introduced in 1989 and featuring an innovative and wide range of filters. In 1992, the Kasko helmet is launched onto the cycling market, followed in 2000 by Forerunner ski helmet. However, it is clothing that radically changes Briko’s position in the market, with the creation of the Katana collection in 2000, which offered technical pieces for both road cycling and mountain bikers. This was followed by the launch of the Beitostolen Nordic skiing range in 2003. Briko’s current team of sports celebrity endorsers comprises some of the most prestigious athletes on the international sports scene. Today, Briko products are distributed in over 60 countries worldwide and their high innovative content is guaranteed by Briko’s own R&D centre for product innovation, aka the "Briko Lab" - established in 2009, where Safety, Kare and Style programs combine Briko’s racing tradition with expert know-how and specialized resources from high-tech industries. And the rich number of medal won by Briko athletes is there to show it.

Bracelayer Knee Stabilizing Compression Pants are constructed on an anti-bacterial Lycra base and feature low-profile knee sleeves built right into the pants. Bracelayer compression tights have our unique Tri-Tech Support Layer, which incorporates a thin layer of medical-grade, perforated neoprene around the knees and hips. This extra layer of compression helps to relieve knee pain and to provide extra support, stability, and protection to active and recovering knees. 

Many athletes wear compression pants to increase blood flow & circulation which can improve recovery and rehabilitation. Studies have shown no adverse effects of wearing compression tights and have noted that applied compression can increase muscle activation which may improve performance and further aid in recovering from injury and rehab. Compression knee sleeves are commonly used to prevent injury, increase stability, and relieve knee pain caused by arthritis, tendonitis, ligament tears, and joint sprains. Research has shown compression knee sleeves can offer benefits to healthy, as well as arthritic and injured knees. 

In healthy knees, compression sleeves improved proprioception or awareness of movement and knee position as well as reduced muscle fatigue. Improved gait, balance & pain relief has been recorded in osteoarthritic knees. Swelling & pain reduction as well as functional improvements have been shown in injured knees when compression sleeves are used. By combining the proven benefits of compression tights with the functionality of knee sleeves, Bracelayer athletic tights are a game-changer and confidence booster for athletes with active knees. 

Our unique line of functional Knee Stabilizing Compression Pants offers unparalleled levels of stability, balance, pain relief, and recovery capabilities when compared to traditional compression tights.

Icebreaker was and still is a merino pioneer. In 1994, it was the first to see the huge potential of the incredible natural material that was not only capable of outperforming synthetic and plastics but was an infinitely better choice for the well-being of the planet. In 2022 we will use 95% merino and plant-based fibres across our range.

We're determined to lead the way towards a more natural way of living with natural merino and plant-based performance alternatives. Merino wool breathes, doesn't smell, it's lightweight, comfortable, absorbs sweat and regulates temperature.

Feel comfortable in your clothing and move to natural.

Canadian Ski Council established in 1977. Few sports have such a diverse number of organizational bodies to foster and maintain the development of the sport and related industry. Distinctly autonomous groups have been formed to administer the various aspects of alpine and cross country skiing, instruction, coaching, ski area operation, disabled skiing, racing, safety, and the equipment wholesale and retail industries.

While each group answers specific needs, the entire ski/snowboard industry long ago recognized their common need for the on-going promotion of the sport. It was felt that it would be most effective if one central body was responsible for the implementation of generic promotions and marketing of our sport on the ski/snowboard industry’s behalf, rather than have many different groups duplicating efforts.

The goal of the Canadian Ski Council is to increase participation in recreational snowboarding, alpine and cross-country skiing in Canada.
