Fusion 105 Carbon Ultra has the same modern geometry as the two freeride models Fusion 105 and Fusion 105 Reload, but with our ultra-light and most advanced carbon fibre construction.
In our Carbon Ultra models we have chosen to minimize weight to get as light ski as possible. The weight of the 179 cm length is as little as 1500 g. In this weight class the ski industry has previously only developed conservative and traditional touring skis. Since all our ski models are developed for the best possible downhill experience, we have combined this ultra-light construction with a modern geometry and tip and tail rocker. The result is a playful touring ski within the freeride segment for skiers who want to explore the backcountry, without compromising with the fun ski experience on the way down.
Since this is a touring ski we recommend mounting light-weight tech bindings (for example Alpinist 12 or ATK R12/FR14) to minimize the total weight.
The construction in our Fusion Carbon models is based on a wood core of snappy poplar and lightweight paulownia together with two layers of offset cut pre-preg carbon fibre. In the tip we have added the ultra-light space technology material Tubecomb to minimize the swing weight of the skis. In the tail we have an insert of ABS for easier attachment of touring skins. To minimize vibrations that occur on harder snow conditions, we have also added race rubber dampening in the construction.
If you are looking for the same characteristics, but in the allmountain segment, the narrower Fusion 95 Carbon Ultra is an alternative. If you want a more versatile carbon fibre skis that also works for resort skiing the slightly heavier Fusion 105 Carbon is a good choice.

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.
