Balsa is an exceptionally light hardwood. Laminated vertically together divided by strips of woven flax (also known as linseed), to provide additional torsional and compression strength. Lighter than Poplar/Ash but more expensive.
Matte EC4060 topsheets require no lacquering saving around 100gm / pair, and reduces the use of not-quite-environmentally friendly lacquer. It also shows through the natural structure of the underlying laminate layers.
Used on 90% of our skis, silkscreen printing provides bright, strong colours that help our skis pop off the walls in-store. Unlike the sublimation process used by many of our competitors, very little waste is created using this method, and water-based inks are used to reduce environmental impact.
Tip & tail rocker with varying amounts of camber underfoot gives maximum versatility and float off-piste.
