The Fusion 105 Carbon is a lightweight freeride ski, based on the same shape as the popular Fusion 105. It caters to the big mountain skier that happily tours to their runs and demands a lightweight ski that doesn’t skimp on the downhill characteristics. The finely tuned waist width of 105 mm makes the ski float effortlessly in powder while still holding a confident edge on harder snow.
We have chosen to maximize the edge grip and dampening relative to the weight to create a ski that’s as versatile as possible, but with the downhill characteristics in focus. This makes the Fusion 105 Carbon a good choice for those looking for a lightweight and playful all mountain ski for resort skiing.
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.
If you plan on doing a lot of touring, we recommend mounting a lightweight tech binding such as the ATK R12 or R14 to keep the overall weight down, and to maximize the uphill efficiency. If resort skiing is your jam, the Fusion 105 Carbon mates perfectly with a hybrid binding such as the Salomon Shift to get better energy transfer and a safer release function.
The Fusion 105 is the freerider’s touring ski, and up for anything.

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.
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.
