Used on our core and womens models, digital printing provides greater flexibility for designing complex graphics and requires no setup process, however the colours are not as bright or strong as the silkscreen method.
Paulownia is a very light hardwood that is stable and easy to machine. Cores made with this material are lighter than Balsa/Flax cores, but are more expensive and require a lamination layer such as carbon-fibre to improve responsiveness.
STP Technology is a patent-pending process used to press a small wave into the length of the ski. This creates a ‘pre-stressed’ core with increased torsional strength, letting us use less wood to create lighter, more forgiving skis with above-average edge-grip. For 14/15, we have developed a variation of the technique that provides a perfectly flat base.
