The Award dedicated to the best-selling and innovative products is back with exciting news

  • Creating space for innovation and quality is the foundation for market recovery. In 2023, the Prowinter Award "Retail" was specifically created to give prominence to the new retail aspect of Prowinter.

  • A jury of 6 experts selected the 18 finalists and the 6 winners, you find the list below.

2. Category On-Piste Ski - Head Supershape E-speed

Motivation of the jury

The Head Supershape E-speed uses advanced technologies to make an already very successful ski even more suitable for skiers of all levels. In addition, the attractive graphics and blue color have also proven to be a major reason for purchase in recent seasons.

The technologies that drive the product towards the future and foster better performance.


The set of values that make the product more appealing to the public and more marketable for the retailer.


Presentation of the idea behind the product and the message to be conveyed to connect with the consumer.
