Rottefella is a Norwegian manufacturing company of winter sports equipment, more specifically ski bindings.[1] The name "Rottefella" refers to the three-pin binding invented by Bror With in 1927, inspired on a couple of rat traps he had seen in a hardware store.[2] The binding were more formally known as the "75mm Nordic Norm".

The binding was the standard for cross-country skiing for decades. Rottefella also produces one of the two systems that have largely replaced the 75mm, the New Nordic Norm.[3]
