Rodeghiero Rizzieri was born on the 5th of december 1919 to a farming family. From a very young age he showed a  strong interest in chemistry. His parents remember him in his adolescence bent over pots mixing his first waxes and  then later testing these waxes in ski racing competitions. In 1939 in Dobbiaco the man everyone knew as “RODE”  won his first important ski race. Many other successes followed, nationally and internationally. 



Between 1946 and 1951 he won 7 Italian Championships including the 18km and the 50km nordic races and the nordic combined events. In 1948 “RODE“ raced in the St. Moritz Olympic Games with a sever flu and a very high fever but still managed a 14th place finish.



Later for the relay race “RODE“ is better and manages to post the third fastest time in his leg of the race. After the Olympic Games in Oslo in 1952 he became a trainer and technician for the Italian Cross Country Ski Federation . “RODE“ first worked for the women’s ski team and  then later for the men’s team. In those years “RODE“ personally  prepared skis for the powerful Italian national ski team.



“RODE’s” hands prepared the skis that Franco Nones used to win a famous gold medal in the Grenoble Olympic Games. In 1972 “ RODE “ left the Italian men’s national  “A”  team and founded RODE SKI WAX. In a few short years RODE SKI WAX was used in the highest levels of cross country skiing.



 As the years have passed the continued improvements to STICK and KLISTER have made  products of such high quality that other competing firms have tried to imitate them many times. In every national and international cross country ski competitions around the world you will find RODE SKI WAX used with success. The GLIDER line is specially designed to be fast and durable skating, alpine, jumping and snowoard. In the 1990s the first powdered fluor waxes were produced and because of their good results they were used with the RODE kick waxes. This created the FAST STICK line and the FAST KLISTER line.



Thaks to the fluorinated additives the FLUOR GLIDER waxes now offer unparalleled performance. Now after years of studies and tests with the collaboration of the best ski-men the RODE firm is also present in the alpine, jumping and snowoard with a complete range of specialized products including HIGH  SPEEDFLUOR GLIDER and GLIDER. These are new products with the ever present quality that has guaranteed the best results for 50 years for those who use RODE products.
