PREPREG CARBON FIBER LAMINATES

crossonski Admin @ 2019-09-11 14:41:04 -0700

Our skis are made of aerospace grade unidirectional pre-impregnated carbon which allows us to tune the skis stiffness and torsional rigidity at any and all points though out the ski. We cut all of our laminates on our CNC to guarantee precision and accuracy which yields an extremely consistent ski, both in weight and flex. Most ski manufacturers that use carbon fiber in their skis utilize a biaxial or triaxial weave which provide stiffness in all directions and cannot be altered. These manufacturers also use a wet resin system vs a dry resin system which offputs harmful VOC's. We do...

NATURAL VULCANIZED RUBBER

Full width and full length natural vulcanized rubber sheet. These greatly dampen the ski by varying the natural frequency. We use two full sheets per ski, one above the core and one below the core. The most common issue with a carbon fiber ski is excessive vibration; we’ve eliminated this

VERTICALLY LAMINATED BEECH AND PAULOWNIA CORE REINFORCED WITH CARBON FIBER STRINGERS

Our top of the line core combines dissimilar materials to create a strong poppy core that is reinforced to ensure strength and binding retention. Each core has vertical plies of carbon between the wood plies that reinforce the core.

FULLY WRAPPED CARBON FIBER CORE

Each of our cores is strategically wrapped in carbon fiber with our proprietary laminate schedule before it's laid up in the ski. The varying fiber directions creates a torsion box around the core for added stiffness, core integrity, power, and edge-to-edge engagement. This also enables the our skis to track extremely well while riding in variable conditions.

TOPSHEET (Pi19/Pi28)

The toughest, thickest top sheet material available with excellent abrasion resistance. Our topsheets are sublimated to ensure a long lasting, brilliant finish.
