Spyder is the brand that the US Olympic Team wears,
I raced for several years as a teen. Haven't really followed the sport in a long time, but once a year a couple guys from the US national team used to lose to us. This had the effect of increasing our points on the national circuit, but it was really just an event that was organized for fun. Spyder is what they always wore and i don't think that's changed. A word about spyder... I don't know how the stuff looks these days cause i haven't skied in a long time, but i remember a couple things about the brand, which i much preferred over Descente or Schneider(or Scheider? can't remember.. been too long), which were it's too main comptetitors at the high-end of skiwear back in my day as far as i can remember... pheonix or whatever was a new brand back then, so i don't really know much about it. Spyder always looked the best. The racing gear especially looked badass
with the spiderweb designs. Performance-wise, i loved spyder because itdidn't look bulky or puffy like descente sometimes did. A spyder suit was very lightweight, usually very thin compared to what other companies offered, and it did it's job marvelously. Really it's amazing how thin their ski suits were compared to other brands, and they still did the job, as well as, or better. We used to train in all kinds of shitty weather and i was always warm and usually not wet (although if it was pouring rain we'd usually wear those plastic ponchos over our ski suits). Really i'm pretty heavily biased towards spyder.. I always loved the stuff and if/when i'm able to start skiing again, it'll be the brand i go back to unless they've totally dropped the ball, which i doubt.
