Amphibio technology is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. A cambered inside edge assures precision, edge grip and stability — while a rocketed outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.
Carbon Line Technology
A combination of innovations that provide the best balance of lightweight construction with power and performance. It strategically locates carbon reinforcement over the edges of the skis, providing more power in the turns, while carbon rods maximize weight savings and stability. Extremely lightweight, high performance skis, with uncompromised versatility and smooth performance.
Provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.
TubeLite Wood Core
Two super light weight Carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. These tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.
Carbon Rod Reinforcements
Lightweight carbon tubes run the length of the ski, following the arc of the sidecut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.
Optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. Helps improve structural integrity of the ski.
Vapor Tip Reinforcement
Integrated into the tip and tail of the ski’s core, these advanced composites reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride, even in the most demanding conditions.
