We believe the primary differentiation feature is the fact that we demonstrate what our skis are made of and how they are precisely created. We have nothing to hide. At our company, you can see each production phase as well as the material quality.
Our Carbonskis are pressed using sandwich technology which has proved to be the most sophisticated and effective way of manufacturing skis over the past years. Using this production technology enables us to affect the ski properties in the most influential way.
The fundament of any good ski is its core and its profile. For Carbonski, we produce our ski cores from three kinds of high-quality wood – pavlownia, ash and beech. The wood is carefully chosen so that it is free of knots, blemishes and with continuous straight wood fibers. Such wood is processed into layers, they are then glued together and the core profile is milled using a tested master form. The core of our skis is not only the filling used between the wood layers of the structure, but this technology also enables us to further affect and control the required ski qualities and parameters.
Carbon roving is layered on the top and bottom side of the core in various directions, depending on the required ski characteristics. Each Carbonski has 6 to 8 layers of fabric comprised of fibres from the Japanese company Toray. We also partially use titan for strengthening upper edges and improving the pressure transmitted to the edges.
During the 2010/2011 season, we succeeded in developing our 165 CM LONG SLALOM SKIS with a radius of 14 meters and then, the women's sport CARVE SKIS 162 CM long.
With each new ski we develop the technology utilizing experience and feedback from the previous skis produced and tested over time. In the 2011/2012 season, faster skis of 172 cm and 165 cm length were created for ambitious skiing. During the summer of 2012, we had a distinctive and authentic design created for our skis, thus further enhancing their exclusivity and uniqueness. Since then we have enlarged our product line of Carbonskis with the lengths of 155, 165 and 172 cm. We believe that our skis, with their innovated core and elegant design, are skis that will enable each skier to enhance their overall skiing experience and performance, not only on icy slopes.
Our Carbonskis last comparably longer than ordinary, serial produced skis while maintaining their high performance qualities. They will surely undergo more edge sharpening and for these reasons, they have the strongest possible edges of 2 mm thickness and a running surface height of 1.6 mm.
The use of carbon bearing layers enables us to significantly save ski weight while maintaining excellent ski properties. The carbon composite has a complex structure that resonates in certain frequencies. Moreover, the light tip and tail of our skis create small inertia and do not require such significant damping. When skiing, you will certainly appreciate easier ski manipulation due to the minimal inertia created by these light tips and tails.
Longitudinal stiffness and torsion
It is evident that the currently used technologies have a hard time competing with the excellent tensile properties of carbon fibres. As for longitudinally soft women's skis, we did not encounter any problem, the simple core profile enabling easy distribution of forces along the length of the ski. Even the first pairs showed great torsion stiffness which is actually self-evident when using oblique roving layers. However, we had to solve the problem of excessive longitudinal stiffness for the 165 cm long slalom skis. We used the core profile used for skis with titan reinforcement, however the skis just did not perform as we required. After experiments with the gradual removal of the top layer, we have come to more considerably shaped core which already enables sufficient power transmission and responsive handling.
Honza Cermak: „The Carbonski skis offer an incredible combination. Due to the responsive modulation of carbon fiber properties, the skis have race ski characteristics, yet they are relatively easy to handle even for less experienced skiers."
OUR SMALL PRODUCTION CAPACITY DOES NOT ALLOW US MORE THAN TO PRODUCE SKIS FOR CONNOISSEURS.
Women's skis should never mean inferior quality, yet when we assess the majority of the women skis offered these days, we are surprised by the lower quality masked by elegant print design covering the "innards" of the ski. Such skis cannot be found in our product range where we focus on creating technologically unique skis that we believe women appreciate.
Our women's skis are significantly light, which is another very important feature not only for women. Using the latest technologies, we have managed to save up to 1 kg per a pair of skis. Furthermore, we have carefully designed geometry that enables easier ski carving, another feature both men and women appreciate. The unique design is the final element creating a special ski for all the unique women out there.
Women Carbonskis are a surprising mix of precision and easy handling while utilizing the latest technologies for their production. Most of our women ski testers are surprised at how their skiing skills instantly progressed just by merely changing their skis. We believe skiing on unique exclusive carbon skis is much more preferable option then! The carbon ski properties enable better skiing, hence more satisfied skiers. At the end of the day, that is what skiing is about!
WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN FAIR MANUAL SKI MANUFACTURING, USING EXCELLENT MATERIALS AND ON INNOVATIVE UP-TO-DATE TECHNOLOGIES.
Carbon has different physical properties than iron since the bonding forces among carbon crystals are smaller than those of iron, but its structure enables to treat it more skillfully. Moreover, it is possible to produce carbon bondages of high purity. Fewer dislocations of crystal lattice volume can be found in carbon fiber than in iron for example, where the creation of quality bonds is complicated due to dirt, thermal expansion. This makes carbon structure relatively stronger in reality. The diagram of Kevlar lattice shows that Kevlar has its excellent properties due to high carbon content and thanks to the simple connection of benzene nuclei. Carbon fiber is practically only clean, well-bound carbon. Only nanotechnologies are better, where the shape of carbon molecules is predetermined. Carbon fiber categories are similar to glass fabrics, however their interesting mechanical properties enable it to predetermine there structure such as creating multi-axial fabrics.
