The Formula 88 is a ski that simply refuses to be put in a category. It lays down carving turns like no other ski we’ve ever made. Or take it to the park, go for a few laps in the trees, zip through the moguls or whatever your imagination can come up with. The Formula 88 is made for ear-grinning fun and the only limits are the ones you set yourself.

The secret sauce lies in the shape itself with an extremely short radius that has been combined with generous tip and tail rocker, and an 88 mm waist. The flex is soft in the tip and tail to make the ski easy to handle at all speeds. The Swedish Metal construction adds a 65 mm wide metal strip underfoot to strengthen the flex, add some more pop to the ski and add some extra edge grip.

All in all, the Formula 88 floats well in softer snow, carves like a dream on the groomers and is more fun than you can ever imagine.

Poplar wood core

The knot free, vertically laminated wood of snappy poplar is a medium lightweight core that gives a playful character of the skis. Combined with Titanal the skis become stiffer and torsional rigid yet keep its playfulness. Without Titanal the skis are just super playful. A CNC-milled and integrated 55x650 mm wood plate of beech secures the mounting of the binding.

Titanal

To increase performance in terms of superior edge grip and high-speed stability, we add a thin strip of 0,4 mm Titanal to the construction. Titanal is the highest strength aluminium-alloy manufactured in an industrial standard process, originally developed for the aerospace industry. Titanal is a registred trademark, owned and produced by AMAG Austria Metall AG.

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).

Top sheet

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.
