Rossignol were doing pretty badly financially this year weren't they? Quiksilver sold them back to the original owners for significantly less than they paid originally. They maybe didn't have enough money to pay for a large team of pro riders?
I'm getting tired of reading this over and over. Dynastar does not own Coreupt.
Coreupt is just using the same molds as Dynastar for this season. From what I've heard they will have their own molds for the next season.
I'm going against the crowd here and saying thats complete bullshit. How does a company that hasnt sold one pair of skis yet just magically have the best pro team out of any other company right now. Do you know how much cash flow that takes? I think Dynastar is trying to rebrand themselves in the ski industry as a new, trendier company cause when you think of dynastar you think about old geezers running the company. Dynastar has consistently become less and less popular over the last couple years because of all the new 'younger generation' ski companies to come up like Armada and Line. If I'm right and Dynastar is trying to rebrand they would never tell you because then you'd associate CoreUPT with Dynastar and that would be the last thing they'd want because most of there sales are based on the company image, and coreUPT is killing image right now, they have the best team, that means when little johnny is trying to figure out which skis to buy he'll just be like oh the best skiers use those ones so maybe I'll be able to get that good using those.
Anywho thats just my rant, makes a lot of sense to me, maybe not to you. peace.
