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 more performance oriented Mothertree 105 Reload emerged as an alternative to the more playful original version, Mothertree 105. We did this to satisfy the wishes from female skiers who were looking for a more powerful freeride ski with more muscles. By adding two layers of arrow-shaped titanal stringers, which are wider under the foot than out at the tip and tail, the result is a well-balanced and playful performance ski. This shape of the titanal creates a fantastic edge grip under the foot on hard snow, while the narrower titanal width in tip and tail makes the skis flex and easy to manoeuvre off-piste. We call this construction Reload.
This is the right model for you who like the Mothertree 105 but want a more stable and torsional rigid version to ski fast in everything from hard slopes to fresh powder. Since the weight increases with the titanal reinforcement and the pure poplar core, Mothertree 105 Reload is primarily intended to be used with a normal alpine binding (for example Marker Griffon) for resort skiing. If you are looking for a more playful freeride ski with less weight, which also can be used as a freetouring ski, the original Mothertree 105 is the better alternative.

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.
To increase performance in terms of superior edge grip and high-speed stability, we add 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).
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.
