RACE IN OUR LEGACY
Bob Lange, owner of a polyurethane company began producing the world’s first fiberglass ski boots in 1963. The new boot featured laces and was immediately adopted by the best athletes due to the stiffness of the materials used and the boots increased reactivity.
In 1967, a new black boot designed with the Flex shell, Flo liner, and an innovative 5 buckle system propelled Nancy Greene to her first World Cup victory. Many new boot models followed from there, each with the singular purpose of accompanying the best athletes in the world to the top step of the podium: the Super Comp, the Banshee, the XLR, the XRI. The gold medals and crystal globes quickly followed: Gustav Thoeni winning the World Championship in 1974, Girardelli winning the first World Cup Overall in 1985, Tomba winning the Overall World Cup Title in 1995, Maze winning the Overall World Cup in 2013, and last but not least, Federica Brignone taking the Overall World Cup in 2020.
RACE IN OUR DNA
It’s this passion and mindset that drives Lange forward each day as we continue to set the high-performance standard in World Cup Racing. From the creation of the very first plastic ski boot to our innovative new Dual Core technology, Lange continues to be an innovative pioneer in ski boot development in order to deliver the very best products to the world’s best skiers. In 1974, the red Lange Super Comp featured an innovative new buckle system that propelled Gustav Thoeni to the World Championship in St. Moritz. Today, Dual Core technology is the competitive advantage that’s helping race athletes reach the top step of the podium.
