The Fusion 105 Carbon Ultra is based on the same modern shape as the freeride model Fusion 105, but in an ultralight construction weighing in at only 1 500 g in 179 cm. If you don’t back down from walking many a vertical meter with the goal of skiing powder, this is your touring ski.
At the same time as the weight has been kept to a minimum, we haven’t skimped on the downhill characteristics. The Fusion 105 Carbon Ultra has a tapered sidecut that has been combined with a progressive rocker in the tip and tail to create a playful feeling. The finely tuned waist width of 105 mm makes the ski float effortlessly in powder while still holding a confident edge on harder snow.
The heart of the advanced construction is a wood core made from snappy poplar and lightweight paulownia, reinforced with two layers of carbon stringers. A tip insert made from the ultralight space technology material Tubecomb minimizes the swing weight, while the tail features an ABS tail protector with an integrated tab to hold your climbing skins securely in place.
The Fusion 105 Carbon Ultra is a dedicated powder ski that is best paired with a lightweight tech binding such as the ATK R12 or Marker Alpinist to keep the total weight down while maximizing the uphill efficiency.

To reduce the swing weight of a pair of skis we use the ultra-light material Tubecomb in tip and tail. These cylindrical tube structures were invented for the aerospace industry as the ultimate energy and vibrations absorber. These properties of the material, in combination with its light weight, is the reason for using Tubecomb in our skis.
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.
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.
Prepreg glass and carbon 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 and carbon 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.
