The sport of skiing was revolutionized in 1958 with a technical innovation from Ed Scott, a talented engineer and ski racer living in Sun Valley, Idaho. His invention of the first tapered aluminum ski pole immediately replaced the sport's existing use of bamboo and steel. This launched a new brand, Scott®, and fundamentally positioned Scott as a technical product leader in the skiing market. Ed Scott's initial vision of technical innovation would serve as the cornerstone company philosophy as the brand matured and expanded to new markets.
In the early 70s, Scott entered into the motocross industry, introduced the world's lightest ski boot and introduced one of the first ski goggles utilizing foam ventilation. The 80s and 90s saw the introduction of the aerodynamic bicycle handlebar, the Unishock Suspension, the Range snowboard, a line of outerwear and the Endorphin, Scott's first carbon mountain bike.
By 1998, Scott was producing skis and from there the company has continued to lead the way in the innovation and development of products to fit an active outdoor lifestyle. From gloves to helmets to skis to goggles, take Scott along on your next biking, motorsport or winter sport adventure. You won't be sorry.
