Skis


Testa

Description

 

The classic one among the zai ski captivates optically with its elegant surface, hand-made from walnut veneer. The differences in the wood grain give testa its individual looks and turn it into something unique.

Behind the timeless design of the exterior hides a high-tech interior. The interaction of wood, steel and carbon provides for easy handling and highest driving control with a variety of snow conditions.

Both, wood and steel, can be refurbished and once more polished. Thus, the zai testa inspires the season after season with its timeless look, which will become ever more beautiful by the natural aging process of wood.

 

How the Testa is made:

 

The top layer of the ski is made of French Walnut of the highest quality, grown in sustainably managed forests. ZAI works directly with the supplier therefore has an opportunity to select the best wood samples. Walnut provides natural damping, improving smoothness and manageability of your ride.

 

The wooden surface of testa ski has been tested in extreme conditions, including more than 700 hour-long exposure to low temperatures and salt water. During manufacturing, under the influence of the generated heat from a ski press, resin of carbon fiber permeate the wood grain, making the walnut surface even tougher and the ski more monolithic.

 

The completed ski is hand-finished and polished with natural wood oils, which ensures stunning views of the ski, keeping the natural beauty of wood. Each set of skis has its own wood pattern, which gives every ski its unique character that will reveal more and more brightness from season to season.

The beauty of the variations of natural wood structure gives a unique character to each ski. Polished walnut is incredibly resilient and durable, and also has excellent damping properties.

 

A small insert of stainless steel passing through the center of the ski ensures outstanding torsion dynamics. Rugged stainless steel upper edges protect the skis against bumps and scratches, extending the quality and duration of their best service.

 

Both the steel and wood can be reworked to keep your Testa ski looking their best for many years to come. Thanks to the natural process of aging of a tree, your skis will become more elegant and graceful from season to season.
