CARRERA SKI RACING TEAM fields top-class athletes to fight another exciting season

2011-2012 SKI WORLD CUP

October 2011 - The 2011/2012 Ski World Cup officially opens in Sölden (Austria) on 22 October and the CARRERA SKI RACING TEAM will have some of biggest names in the downhill racing circuit at the gates this season.

For example, competing for CARRERA is one of the favorites to win the overall title this year, Swiss-born champion Carlo Janka, who placed third last year at the World Championships then took gold in the giant slalom in Slovenia as well as making the podium on countless other occasions. Equally talented team member is Elisabeth Görgl, gold medal winner in the Super G and Downhill World Championship events in Garmisch. Other team members ready to go into battle are Austrians Andrea Fischbacher, competing downhill, and Mario Matt, a special slalom specialist.
The 2011/2012 CARRERA SKI RACING TEAM also boasts top ski-jumpers Gregor Schlierenzauer and Thomas Morgenstern as well as Nordic combined specialist, Austrian-born David Kreiner and ski cross competitor Andreas Matt.

For the 2011/2012 winter season, CARRERA is also the official ski goggle and helmet supplier for the Austrian, Finnish, Italian, Swiss and Japanese ski pools.

Right after the opening of the Alpine Skiing World Cup, the Ski Jumping World Cup will follow on 26 and 27 October in Kuusamo (Finland); last year our athletes put in some premier performances, with Thomas Morgenstern taking the overall crown plus all 5 individual golds at the Oslo World Championships (Norway).


Swiss-born CARLO JANKA won the overall title at the 2010 World Cup and placed third last year due to a heart problem which he returned from in time to continue competing and win gold in the Kranjska Gora (Slovenia) giant slalom.
Having taken gold at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Carlo is geared up for action, his sights set on winning the overall title this year.

ELISABETH GöRGL had an amazing season which saw her make the podium on numerous occasions during the regular circuit and win two golds in the Garmisch World Cup, taking the Downhill and Super G crowns to become the third ever female athlete to succeed in such an achievement.

To assure the safety of the CARRERA SKI RACING TEAM out on the snow, the quality of CARRERA ski goggles and helmets is critical and will be with them throughout the entire racing season.


The BULLET ski helmet offers the ultimate in aerodynamics and safety. On piste, thanks to the characteristic rounded shape and CARRERA World Cup Replica logo, it gives anyone wearing it a distinctive, competition-winning look.
The glass fibre layer makes it lightweight and comfortable to wear, the shell designed to guarantee the perfect fit.
The helmet also has a special dry wave fabric liner to absorb moisture and keep the wearer dry and cool throughout the day. To assure athletes can still hear and have perfect balance when wearing the helmet, special aluminium hearing holes have been added to make BULLET a versatile helmet that can also be used when not racing. The goggle strap and padding at the back to protect the neck are both leather.

CARRERA SKI RACING TEAM athletes wear the Black Matte, White Logo and White Shiny Speed BULLET helmets. BULLET also comes in Silver Matte Speed, Black Matte Speed, Black Shiny Speed, Red Shiny Speed and Red White Logo versions.


KIMERIK goggles feature the most advanced technology currently available.
CARRERA's special SEAL RING system keeps the twin lenses perfectly parallel, assuring that the visual field is not distorted in any way and stopping them from clouding with moisture. The lenses are given a special anti-fog, anti-scratch treatment which combines with the active ventilation system to assure perfect vision.
A special material is used to make the frame, guaranteeing absolute resistance to low temperatures without altering flexibility. The wrap-around interior is soft and comfortable to assure a perfect fit.

CARRERA SKI RACING TEAM athletes wear the Black Matt Logo and Shiny White Speed KIMERIK goggles. KIMERIK goggles are also available in Red Shiny Logo, Black Matte Speed, Light Blue Play and Silver Matte Play.

The quality of CARRERA ski helmets, ski goggles and sunglasses is guaranteed by the Safilo Group's lengthy experience and expertise in the field.
