Saab and Salomon – always inventing.
We’re both adventure seekers who share a heritage of giving wild ideas wings that have become
ground-breaking innovations since 1947. Cool common ground and an identical founding year.

We think not. These days, Saab and Salomon work together to create new sporting events – giving
athletes a whole new way to play and everyone else a great show.
Together, we’re giving back to those who share our values of independence, creativity and a passion

our athletes and teams have enjoyed successes worldwide.


-The Transalp X-Wing Rally, presented by Saab, Salomon, and FRWD technologies, challenges
teams of 3 to grab just one pair of skis each, jump into a Saab Sport Combi and make their way
through Solden, St. Anton am Alberg, Engadin St. Moritz, Cervina & Zermatt, Chamonix, Les 3 Vallees
and Tignes. Every day a new resort, every day a new discipline and every descent adds up to

world’s toughest race”. Racers battle terrain and conditions that are as huge and as harsh as they
