Rottefella has focused on bindings, and only bindings, since 1927. We continue to craft superior bindings for Nordic and Telemark skiing. We refine and reinvent them – constantly, and distill the skiing insights of our Norwegian heritage into cutting edge technology. It’s not just about better bindings – it’s about who we are.
The origin to the name Rottefella – (“rat trap”)
”The Norwegian mechanical engineer, inventor and industrialist Bror With created the first split toe binding in 1927. He used his bindings in a ski race, were the then Crown Prince Olav was present. He took one look at the different looking bindings and asked Bror what on earth he had on his skis. The inventor quickly replied: “Oh, they’re just a couple of rat traps I picked up at the hardware store”. The binding proved itself a success and the name “Rottefella” was a reality”.
