Taking the place of Craft, its former sponsor, Halti has become the sponsor of the Finnish National Biathlon Team and the official supplier of clothing for the members of its men’s, women’s and junior teams under a new two-year contract that is expected to improve the brand’s international visibility because of the wide popularity of the sport all over Europe. In addition to contracts with individual athletes, who contribute to the development and testing of new products, Halti is already the official supplier of Finland’s cross-country, ski jumping and Nordic combined teams. It also dresses the staff of the International Ski Federation (FIS).
