ASKI

The ASKI ski is the result of an innovative thermoplastic matrix composite technology with a patented industrial process. Research and studies have led to perfecting this technology that utilises thermoplastic polymers with high chemical-physical characteristics, which interconnect the carbon fibres to form structural laminates by means of compression moulding.

The ski shell is geometrically defined with advanced industrial processes that take advantage of electromagnetic fields. The processing is controlled with sophisticated electronic instruments that monitor the correct balance of dilatation and shrinkage. The shell and the different thermoplastic carbon laminates undergo a chemical-physical treatment to increase surface reactivity and alter the molecular structure. In this way the contact points are activated, which make the surface elastic and favour gluing. 

The core of the ski, which has the task of distancing the compression axis from the traction axis, consists of a rigid foam with low density closed cells. Thermoplastic kevlar laminates with resilient characteristics allow ski stability by disrupting the vibrating motion of the steel laminates. Special elastomers are inserted into the vital points of the ski during assembly to ensure good vibration dampening. 

This technology has helped achieve outstanding results in laboratory tests on the breakage load. 

The geometric line or narrowing in the Stealth, Magma and Verglas skis is created by a constant radius, while in the Free-ride Nevaio and Blue Moon it is formed by the combination of various radiuses from tip to tail. In each model the geometric balance is designed to facilitate the use of the ski both on deep snow and on hard surfaces. 

The opening of the rocker tips highlights the flap shape that optimises floating on deep snow, but at the same time stabilises the ski on compact snow dampening vibrations.
