Two ski enthusiasts within the organization of Schaeffler Nordics & Baltics

Within the organization of Schaeffler Nordics & Baltics we have two ski enthusiasts who frequently go skiing: rolling skis during summertime and regular cross country skis during winter. One of them is Jonny Persson, working in our important Schaeffler Technology Center.

For me, using roller skis during summer is both very fun and a great compliment to other kinds of exercising, says Jonny Persson. It is normal that I go as long as 20 kilometers during one training session and of course I must be able to trust the equipment I am using.

Sport Import is the company behind the roller skis where the high-quality bearings from Schaeffler are used. The company was founded in Norway in 1989 and has for over 30 years been a supplier of sports equipment to leading sports shops, both nationally and internationally. To be able to make skis of the absolute best performance and quality, the right components are key, and Schaeffler was asked to deliver the bearings for these products.

We asked if Schaeffler had the possibility to supply us with the correct bearings for the roller skis. Schaeffler is known for its high-quality bearings, and we are very satisfied with them, and bearings are one of the key components to be able to produce the skis.

Another great ski enthusiast in the Schaeffler Nordic organization is the CEO, Erik Askensjö. He is in general very interested in different kinds of training and exercising, but being able to do it outside, in the fresh air, is most important for him.

Being able to practice with full power the entire year is important for me. What is also crucial is that I fully trust the equipment, and that I use products with high performance and best quality. I feel very comfortable knowing that our bearings with Smooth running technology are fitted in my skis, which makes the roller skis reliable. This is important to me since this kind of exercise is an important part of my training.
