Kathryn Crouchen

Product Specialist

ZEEK Group

Kathryn is the Product Specialist of ZEEK Alpine which is a specialist supplier of elite carbon fiber ski poles.

She grew up surrounded by all things carbon fibre via her father’s company, Rockwood Composites, and from there grew an interest in the multitude of parts that Rockwood manufactures.

For many years Kathryn worked at Rockwood between studies getting to know how ‘Out-of-autoclave’ manufacturing worked. It was within this time frame that the idea of making composite ski poles was brought to life. To start with it was just a small niche product for family and close customers, but more recently as ZEEK has grown and developed into much more. Now the ZEEK POLE is stepping onto the international stage with more and more people amazed with its performance and lightness.

Kathryn has been a ski coach in Canada for the past two winter seasons putting the poles through their paces in all terrain and situations and spreading the word about ZEEK.

Kathryn will be presenting on the ultimate performance of the ZEEK POLE, its manufacturing technology and the many benefits ZEEK poles bring to the sport.
