In the ski industry, people often talk about piste skis as if they were one type of skis for one type of skiing and for one type of snow conditions. But if you ski in the piste from the start of the season to very end of the season, you realize that the reality is different. Skiing often begins with icy pre-season slopes with artificial snow. This later turns into perfect corduroy and ends with spring snow conditions at Easter. If you also add how a slope changes during the day – from being well-groomed in the morning to moguls in the afternoon – you get another dimension to take into account.

Since we like to ski in all these different kind of snow conditions, we launched Project 83. A ski model developed for skiers who are looking for an incredibly versatile slope ski with excellent edge grip and performance. The ski is based on our two very successful all-mountain skis, Project 90 and 100, but has been fine-tuned to optimize the piste performance. The fact that Project 83 is based on a geometry from all-mountain skis, with a small rocker in tip and tail, gives them a playful character and the possibility to quickly release the edge and slow down on the steeper part of the slopes.

The skis are made with a wood core of snappy poplar and stable beech. In tip and tail we have added race rubber dampening to minimize the vibrations that occur in harder snow conditions. Two layers of full-with titanal make the skis torsional stiff and stable at higher speed.

If you want to explore the skiing outside the slopes, but still maintain much of the piste performance of Project 83, we can recommend Project 90 or Project 90 Woman.

Poplar/beech wood core

The knot free, vertically laminated wood core of snappy poplar and stable beech gives a playful yet dampened character of the skis. Combining this with Titanal means performance, calmness and superior edge grip. Without Titanal the wood core is more flexible and forgiving with more allround characteristics.

Titanal

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).

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.
