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.
Dyneema® is an UHMwPE fiber, the world's strongest fiber. It's incredibly versatile with virtually limitless applications. It's manufactured by means of a gel-spinning process that combines extreme strength with incredible softness. The fiber is virtually impossible to penetrate.
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.
Graphite Race Base contains a high number of additives that absorb the wax and ensure a soft gliding. High molecular weight graphite base is used for racing skis. This base is assembled in a cold state in order to achieve the utmost gliding performance.
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.
