The fact that Kilian is breaking new ground has been known at least since his departure from Salomon. It is not yet known which shoe brand he will be using in the future, but recently there were rumors that he would switch to The North Face Running. But that is just one rumor of many.
Now, however, it has been announced that Coros and Kilian will be hitting new trails together from now on. After Coros already signed Eliud Kipchoge, Kilian Jornet is the next coup of Lewis Wu, the co-founder of Coros.
Lewis is a longtime fan of Kilian and their story together started with an Instagram message from Lewis. Kilian had already heard many positive things about Coros and was immediately excited. He was very impressed with the team, the athletes and the products.
When Lewis traveled to Norway a short time later, he met Kilian in person. It quickly became clear that a cooperation was interesting for both sides. Details were clarified on a joint ski tour.
Kilian himself has set himself big goals for 2022. Hardrock and UMTB are among the best-known competitions. But Kilian has bigger ambitions than these competitions. He wants to become part of Coros' history and take the whole team to a new level.
