The peanut butter and jelly that gave us the advantages of both PU and PVC cores while reducing overall core mass and increasing responsiveness.

When it comes to core, PU and PVC are the most prominently applied materials in the water sports industry. PVC, a low density, light weight foam, is typically used in high-end products in tandem with carbon. Because the PVC has little effect on how the ski will function, the carbon fibers can perform at their maximum, ultimately making a ski responsive and reactive.

On the other hand, PU is a much higher density and heavier foam, which adds a damping effect to a ski, making it more forgiving and more suitable for a wider range of skill levels. This hybrid build allows us to remove sections of the core leading to a reduction in overall core mass and allowing the fibers of the ski to react quicker and more naturally.
