David Jacobs is the founder of Spyder in 1978. The name of the brand has a little story behind which is worth telling. David's son thought the racing pants his dad was making looked like spiders' legs due to several reinforcements on them. On top of that, David Jacobs was a huge fan of Ferrari and decided to pay tribute to the legendary sports car and to his son by naming his brand Spyder. But beyond a name, the brand is well known for making high-end ski clothing. At first, it made slalom specific suits with various reinforcements but it now covers alpine skiing, freeskiing and more recently mountain biking.
