Rottefella (literally translated as rat trap ) is a Norwegian manufacturer of ski bindings for cross-country skiing and telemarking . The company is located in Klokkarstua in Asker municipality .
The original binding, known as the "rat trap", was developed in 1927 by Bror With . This system was one of the most widely used cross-country bindings for over 50 years. The binding was later replaced by the NNN system ( New Nordic Norm ) in cross-country skiing. The system manufactured by the company for telemarking is called NTN ( New Telemark Norm ).
In addition to the NNN system, only SNS ( Salomon Nordic System ) is widespread on the world market for cross-country skiing bindings . These systems are not compatible and must match the shoe used. Beginning with the 2007/2008 collection, Fischer Sports GmbH switched from the SNS system to NNN, which has increased its market share, especially in the European market.
