About Fjellsport

Fjellsport is the largest ecommerce business in Norway and a leading industry expert in outdoor sportswear and gear. The brand offers wide range of products focused around three outdoor activities: steep outdoor, general outdoor, and outdoor training. Fjellsports’ mission is to foster memorable experiences that their customers can enjoy out in nature. To achieve this, they partner with the best and most popular brands in the Nordics to offer high-quality products and provide best-in-class services both on and offline.


Balancing various customer segments in an ever-changing consumer landscape

The brand’s catalog contains approximately 20,000 products that span across footwear, hardware and apparel categories. This, coupled with various customer segments that each cater to remarkably unique shopping preferences and interests, has made this balance far from easy.

Some customers might enter our site mainly looking for ski gear, while others are in a mission to find tools for camping and fishing. They have drastically different goals. – Christian Evensen, Ecommerce Manager at Fjellsport

The global pandemic has since steered Fjellsport customers to shop online rather than in-store, resulting in the rise of a new customer segment of shoppers age 55 and over – consumers with potentially limited knowledge and experience of online shopping.

The challenge is twofold: Evensen and the Fjellsport team know that it is fundamental to offer this segment of customers the best possible experience onsite to guarantee conversion and long-term retention. However, it’s equally important to ensure that the brand’s other customer segments are not left behind.

Every part of our customers’ online journey must be flawless – and to achieve this, we need superior partners like Nosto who support us with our personalization and merchandising needs.

In their 6 years using Nosto, Fjellsport has expanded the use of the platform to offer a fully personalized commerce experience to their customers.
