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 Bridge Technology
A revolutionary solution where a single carbon rod placed on the upper part of the ski provides stability, dampening and vibration absorption.
A unique and effective solution to maximize performance while keeping the weight low. Pyramidal shaped sidewall are positioned throughout the body of the ski to increase vibration absorption and high-speed stability.
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.
Lightweight yet strong carbon provides additional support where it’s needed.
Optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. Helps improve structural integrity of the ski.
