The Project 83 is our take on a groomer ski, created for the fun in and the feeling of making perfect carving turns no matter the snow conditions. Icy pre-season slopes, spring slush, fresh morning corduroy or chopped up snow after lunch – the Project 83 can handle it all. It’s a ski shaped for the kind of groomer skiing we like ourselves, and often encounter here in northern Scandinavia. Conditions that call for a ski that you can trust skiing from bell to bell, without compromises.
The Project 83 is based on our successful Project 90 and 100 models, but in a narrower version. This is a modern on-piste ski borrowing traits from an all mountain ski with a slight rocker in both the tip and tail. This gives it a playful character and the possibility to alternate between carving and skidding turns depending on the conditions or the terrain.
The base of the construction is a wood core made from snappy poplar wood and stable, dampened, beech. The outstanding edge grip and the torsional rigidity come from two full-width layers of Titanal. Race rubber dampening in the tip and tail minimizes vibrations.
The Project 83 is a ski that holds its own from skiing from first to last chair, and just begs for more.
If you are looking for a ski for softer snow, but with much of the same on-piste performance, take a look at the Project 90.

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.
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.
