Purpose: The most versatile ski in the Skinbased collection, paired with our most versatile binding. Reliably handles a wide array of terrain, snow types, and adventures.
The Details Matter
We are skiers, snow trekkers, and nature enthusiasts with our own passion for winter adventures. This leads us to obsess over every detail, to make our skis as good as they can possibly be. From our basecamp here in Finland, we manufacture our skis using only the finest materials and the perfect balance of cutting-edge technology and handcraftsmanship, setting them in a class of their own.
Slick, strong, and requiring minimal maintenance, our Unicoat base was developed by our R&D team and is exclusively used on Skinbased products. Tough and easy to care for, the Unicoat base absorbs liquid and paste waxes only, so you can spend less time waxing, and more time skiing. PATENTED US 9,308,431 PATENTED EP 2898930
Our heavy-duty steel edges offer an increase in protection against accidental collisions with stones and stumps. They also bring superior edging capabilities and are critical for steeper descents in hardpack snow conditions.
EA 2.0 BINDING
Start your adventure off on the right foot! The EA 2.0 Universal binding let you ski in nearly any winter shoe you already have.
Keep the good times rolling
One of the many benefits of Skinbased skis is that they require so little maintenance. Just a bit of time and a touch of quick wax every now and again is all they need to remain in tip-top shape and as excited as you for the next outing.
