If you are as eager as us about ski construction and design, you might want to know why our skis are designed the way they are!


TIP

TOURING TIP

With a thinner and lighter wood core than our traditions skis its designed for long days touring. The shape of the tip will also help reduce drag when skinning up. 

FREERIDE TIP

A smaller version of the powder tip, reducing the width and length of the taper. With an ecliptic rocker design, this tip works in any speeds in any types of snow. 

POWDER TIP

Developed with one thing in mind - powder. A long rocker combined with a long taper makes this tip extremely agile and effortless in deep conditions. 

 

Freestyle tip

An allround shape and design spiced with features like butter zone for added playfulness and TPU-damping to reduce vibrations. Any terrain - every day! 

UNDERFOOT

CAMBER UNDERFOOT

A traditional cambered design gives you stability and versatility on any condition. On hardpack a camber design is unmatched. 

FLAT UNDERFOOT

A flat underfoot design delivers the best of both worlds. Stability on hard conditions, and playful characteristics in soft snow.

NEGATIVE CAMBER UNDERFOOT

A negative camber design gives you maneuverability and response in powder like no other ski. Everyone is a great skier with negative camber in deep snow! 

TAIL

TOURING TAIL

Designed to suit all skins, with a customizable large ABS plastic tail. There is a small kick in the tail to reduce drag from you skin-clip while touring. 

FREERIDE TAIL

Obtaining the feeling of a directional ski, but at the same time able to ski switch. Rockered pintail design reduces drag and loves spinning out of deep snow.

POWDER TAIL

The powder tail has a long rocker shape combined with a long taper. This results in a nimble pintail design for effortless skiing in deep powder. 

FREESTYLE TAIL

The freestyle tail is suitable for allround skiing from piste to deep snow. A twintip design makes it extremely playful and suitable for switch landings.

CORE

POPLAR AND BAMBOO

Poplar is a lightweight and versatile wood material, while bamboo is a strong and responsive wood. Combined they are a lightweight, responsive and fun core.

 

POPLAR AND PAULOWNIA

Poplar is a lightweight and versatile wood material, and paulownia is extremely light while maintaining a good structure. Combined they make an extremely lightweight, and fun core.
