1978年， 滑雪冠军及企业家David Jacobs创建了David L. Jacobs Inc.，公司，这个公司出售障碍滑雪赛时穿的上衣。他还设计了护腿。他决定在自己的厨房里出售上衣但是他不知道如何命名。他最小的儿子Billy曾经把他设计的衣服叫"spider"因为看起来就像蜘蛛的腿。这个名字引起David的兴趣："就叫这个名字了。我把它拼写成Y，因为Y就代表Spyder（spider和Spyder发音一样）。我讨厌这个黑色寡妇的象征。"就这样，Spyder这个品牌诞生了，后来成为出色的滑雪品牌。到了1980年，Spyder走出Jacobs'的厨房，销售额达到上万美元并且扩展在即。在以后的十几年中，David Jacobs在Spyder的日常运营中发挥重要的角色。2006年，他把Spyder交给了他的大儿子，也就是现在的Spyder总裁兼CEO Jake Jacobs。现在的Spyder保持逐年的增长并超越同行业的其他品牌。产品涵盖滑雪赛，滑雪，自由滑雪的装备，同时又新引进了的收藏。
原文:Spyder Celebrates 30 Year Milestone
BOULDER， Colo， December 21st， 2007 - The ic Spyder emblem is a ubiquitous a part of on-mountain culture as the snow itself and is synonymous with leading-edge performance and adrenalin-charged style. 2008 marks a banner year for Spyder as the brand enters its 30th year， well positioned as the world's leading ski specialty and mountain-style brand.
In 1978， ski racing champion and entrepreneur David Jacobs founded David L. Jacobs Inc.， to market a padded slalom sweater. He had also designed a padded race pant with pads sewn on top of the legs. He decided to sell the sweater through a small mail order business out of his kitchen， but didn't know what to name it. His youngest son， Billy， had been calling the pants "spider" pants because the pads looked like spider legs. David recalls his thought process on naming the business： "That's it， I'll spell it with a "Y" because of Ferrari convertibles called "Spyder"， and because I hate black widows， that will be the icon." The name and memole logo stuck and the Spyder brand was created， becoming the mark of on-mountain excellence for generations to come.
Spyder operated out of Jacobs' kitchen until 1980， when sales reached six figures and expansion became imminent. Over the decades to follow， Jacobs played an intimate part in leading Spyder's daily operations， ultimately passing the torch in 2006 to his eldest son， Spyder's current President and CEO Jake Jacobs. Today the cottage operation David Jacobs founded continues to enjoy consistent year over year growth， outpacing players in the egory and consistently setting the benchmark for technical performance and style. Spyder's product mix has grown to dominate ski racing， alpine， freeski， and accessory categories， as well as a newly introduced downhill mountain biking-inspired Spring Freeryde collection.
"I'm honored and awestruck by the size and strength of Spyder today， compared to how it was in the beginning，" said David Jacobs. "Spyder was first embraced by core， elite athletes， and we remain committed to serving the consumer. Our industry partners are the best in the business， and we thank each of them for their support over the decades."
