Playing with Metal

Playing with Metal

Over the last summer I have been testing a lot of ways to incorporate titanal topsheets into my latest ski designs. I have been playing with metallic finishes, copper finishes, as well as a rusty patina look. 

The metal topsheet is not just for looks. The titanal layer is very durable and protects the core as well as gives the ski much more rigidity. The combination of a bouncy bamboo core wrapped in a titanal topsheet makes for a very fun and powerful ski. 

Here is a video of the newest metal topsheet ski that has been added to the ski lineup - The Iris FS1
