Mothertree is the world’s first community-developed freeride ski for females and have been developed together with the female ski network InspireUs. The background to the collaboration was the need for skis that are developed by and for woman in an otherwise male-dominated industry, where normally men develop skis for women. The ski, and the unique development process behind it, was awarded the international and prestigious ISPO Award 2016/17.
The ski is designed to meet the specific requirements and wishes of female skiers. This resulted in a playful and versatile freeride model, optimized for the best days on the mountain. The waist measurement of 105 mm under the foot provides great floatation off-piste and makes them very easy to manoeuvre regardless of whether it is powder, spring snow or wind packed. Even though Mothertree 105 is far from a piste ski, they perform surprisingly well on the slopes.
The fantastic skiing characteristics off-piste comes from the perfectly balanced construction and geometry. Mothertree is a light-weight glass fibre ski (1780 g at 172 cm) made with a wood core of snappy poplar and light-weight paulownia. In tip and tail we have added race rubber dampening to minimize the vibrations that occur in harder snow conditions and to maintain the stability of the light-weight construction. This construction, together with a well-balanced and progressive rocker in tip and tail, makes the skis feel stable yet easy to ski.
In Swedish ski magazine Åka Skidor’s all-mountain test 2021/22, Mothertree 105 received an incredibly good review with quotes such as "Mothertree 105 positions itself exactly where the skier gets something good in every place" and that one of the test skiers praised it for being "One of the favorites in the test".
Mothertree 105 can be used as a playful freeride ski with a normal alpine binding (for example Marker Griffon) for resort skiing. Because of the light weight, Mothertree 105 is also perfect to combine with a hybrid binding (for example Shift or KingPin) to get an incredibly versatile freetouring ski to explore the mountains beyond the ski resort.
If you are looking for these characteristics, but want a titanal reinforced, powerful and performance-oriented freeride ski, Mothertree 105 Reload could be an alternative. But if you are looking at the same playful characteristics as Mothertree 105, but with a narrower waist and shorter radius, Mothertree 95 could be a good option.

Poplar/paulownia wood core
Our light-weight skis are made from a knot free, vertically laminated wood core of snappy poplar and light-weight paulownia. This combination of wood gives a playful, lively and nimble character of the skis. A CNC-milled and integrated 55x650 mm wood plate of beech secures the mounting of the binding.
Race rubber dampening
To minimize vibrations in hard snow conditions, such as icy slopes and wind packed off-piste, we use 1,5 mm race rubber dampening in the tip and tail from Austrian Haberkorn GmbH. We also use 0,2 mm rubberfoil in the skis to further strengthen the construction and increase bonding between different materials.
Prepreg glass fiber
We are quite unique to use dry Prepreg epoxy resins instead of letting our employees handle liquid epoxy when building skis, which is otherwise practice in the ski industry. Our glass fiber rolls come industrially impregnated with HexPly M78 from our supplier Hexcel, a world-leading producer of advanced composite material for the aerospace industry. This results in a dry, safe and great work environment for our ski builders and significantly increases the quality of the skis.
Austrian race base
We like to ski fast! Therefore, we use highest quality Isospeed 7515 race bases from Austrian Isosport GmbH. These running bases are made of ultra-high density polyethylene with high quality graphite for best gliding properties in a wide range of conditions.
Extra thick steel edges
For maximum durability of our skis, we purchase one piece steel edges from the well renowned Waelzholz GmbH, who have manufactured steel edges in Germany for over 50 years. We use their extra thick and durable Profile 132 that is 2,3 mm high and 2,2 mm wide for all models except Fusion 95 Carbon Ultra, where we use a 1,9 mm high and 1,5 mm wide edge to minimize weight.
Extra wide ABS sidewall
For maximum durability of our skis, we use extra wide 8,5 mm ID 2500 ABS sidewalls from Austrian Isosport GmbH (compared to the ski industry standard width of 5-6 mm).
For best wear performance and abrasion resistance, we use sublimated 0,55 mm Isocap ICP 8210 top sheets with structured surface from Austrian Isosport GmbH.
