TRUEBLEND FREE WOODCORE

PERFECT BALANCED FLEX
We have designed a specific Trueblend Free Woodcore for our freeride / back country category skis. It combines beech and poplar – two wood types that guarantee performance – with paulownia for a lightweight, yet high-performance wood core.
The result: the right flex to cover for all backcountry requirements in a lighter package.

PERFORMANCE WITHOUT COMPROMISES
The Trueblend Free Woodcore specifically positions three different densities of wood together to form a woodcore that is specifically designed to optimize the flex of the ski and deliver a smooth and balanced feeling.
This blending of the different densities of wood creates three distinct flex zones; a softer flex zone in the tip and tail areas, that facilitates easy turn initiation and release, a medium flex zone in front of and behind the binding, that helps deliver confidence and control and finally a stiffer flex zone in the center, underneath the binding, that guarantees perfect edge grip and stability.
Trueblend woodcores are designed to provide just the right amount what you need, performance, control, and confidence, to do what you want, when you want anywhere on the mountain.

CARBON D.R.T.
CARBON D.R.T.

D.R.T. stands for dinamic release technology.
It has proven itself to be the perfect dynamic energy release technology for the freeride/ back country category.
The strength and lightness of carbon fiber ensure:
• lightweight damping
• stability and control

D.R.T. blends carbon fiber with fiberglass to give you better support, more confidence and greater performance without compromising on the fun.

ACTIVE CARBON ARMOR
ACTIVE CARBON ARMOR

PERFORMANCE EFFICIENCY
Active Carbon Armor is a vibration damping and rebound control system that is located under the binding. Inspired by the carbon armor from the Firebird collection, the carbon fiber plate is brought outside of the ski body which allows it to flex freely. In this way the ski turns out to be less demanding while still providing a very high level of performance.

INNOVATIVE AND VISIBLE TECHNOLOGY
Active Carbon Armor provides both vibration damping and enhanced rebound and acceleration without effecting the progressive flex of the ski.

CARBON DRIVE L.T.
CARBON DRIVE L.T.

The unidirectional carbon fiber chassis offers perfect torsional strength and forgiving flex for downhill performance. The result: a ski that is not too stiff or strong, but reliable in all touring conditions.

TRUEBLEND PISTE WOODCORE

PERFECT BALANCED FLEX
Two different types of wood specifically blended into one woodcore. The different density stringers are customized in quantity and length creating 3 different areas of density to precisely control the flex.

ACCESSIBLE PERFORMANCE
The Trueblend Piste Woodcore is designed with a harder flex zone in the center, that provides stability and edge grip, a medium flex zone in front of and behind the binding that provides control, and a soft flex zone in the tip and tail that provides easy turn initiation and release. Trueblend technology allows us to precisely control the flex throughout the whole length of the ski and in every size.

CARBON C-SPINE

CARBON C-SPINE

The Carbon Spine Core consists of two bi-directional carbon fiber layers that run tip to tail and are positioned vertically between the middle laminents of the woodcore. 

When does the C-Spine acts
The C-Spine acts during the middle to end phase of the turn, when rebound and agility are needed the most.
In this phases the wood-carbon compound releases its energy ensuring a great rebound and easier transition from one turn to the next one.

BENEFITS

  • INCREASED STABILITY
  • INCREASED PRECISION
  • MAXIMUM REBOUND
  • MAXIMUM ENERGY TRANSMISSION
  • MAXIMUM EDGE TO EDGE RESPONSE

CARBON ARMOR

The Carbon Armor is an edge to edge layer of bi-directional Carbon fiber positioned in the middle section of the ski, directly under the plate. This layer of carbon fiber adds additional support to the middle section of the ski.

When does the C-Armor acts
The C-Armor acts during the beginning to middle of the turn: 
Here the needs are control feeling and stability. 
The Carbon Armor avoids micro vibrations under the binding increasing edge grip and ensuring a feeling of stability and control.

BENEFITS:

  • MAXIMUM STABILITY
  • MAXIMUM EDGE GRIP
  • MAXIMUM POWER
  • HIGH PERFORMANCE AND AGGRESSIVE CHARACTER

Duramax

DURABLE PROTECTION

New titanal construction that is designed to provide both maximum durability and increased performance with a unique, high value look. The top titanal layer is extended to the very edge of the ski and placed directly under the top foil which is then milled back 3 mm, thus exposing it. The titanal directly absorbs all impacts that occur along the top edge, reducing scratches and eliminating chipping.

TRUEBLEND TOUR WOODCORE

PERFECT BALANCED FLEX
The Trueblend Tour Woodcore has a specific design with two different density areas: the stronger center, which guarantees maximum support, edge grip and stability underfoot; a softer tip to tackle all snow conditions with the same level of performance; and a supportive tail for higher confidence downhill.

We use a specific blend of woods to deliver perfect flex for light touring requirements.
Paulownia offers an unbeatable strength-to-weight ratio, while poplar gives high energy performance without sacrificing durability.
