Ash has historically proven to be the best quality and the most reliable wood for ski building due to its amazing strength, elasticity, and fiber structure. It gives skis great response thanks to fast power transmission. Aspen is the highest quality poplar wood that exists. Its characteristics are flexibility, elasticity, and low weight. Thanks to Aspen, the tips and tails of the skis are light and flexible.
Carbon fiber is produced from a variety of precursors, including polyacrylonitrile (PAN), rayon or pitch. The precursor fibers are heated and stretched to create the high-strength fibers. It is by far the most widely used fiber in high-performance applications, and the first high-performance fiber.
Glass fiber is the oldest and the most common reinforcement used in aerospace applications to replace heavier metal parts. Glass weighs more than carbon, but is also more impact-resistant. The vast majority of all fibers used in the composites industry are glass.
Kevlar aramid fiber is used to make a variety of safe and cut resistant equipment, accessories, and clothing. It’s lightweight and has five times the strength of steel on an equal-weight basis, which makes it extraordinarily strong. It is best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armor. It absorbs vibrations in ski constructions.
The revolution in asymmetric skis designed for every day and every condition.
There is a Freeride and a Backcountry side of the ski and each brings different riding style. Freeride side has a longer effective edge on the tip. It is better for aggressive riding and steep descents. Backcountry side is more centered with longer edge on the tail and it makes the skis more playful and perfect for cruising. Tip and tail rocker ensures enough flotation on powder days, whether you are riding forward or on switch. Thanks to 105 mm underfoot you can enjoy powder and BC, but still it's not too wide for riding on the pistes, hard pack or moguls. From now on, all you need is one LOTOR, because you carry two different skis in one.
