SKIS WITH FLAX FIBRES LAYUP SHOW OFF DURING ISPO 2015

More ski brands are displaying flax fibres layup, ampliTex, instead of the traditionaly used glass fibres.

Indeed, flax is a very sustainable material, much nicer to handle to work with than glass, no skin iritation, no harmfull dust, which are the first reasons why people love to work with it. From a technical point of view, flax present some major advantages, like being lighter than glass at equal stiffness. You can use as little as half the weight of your glass layup to obtain equivalent properties. Flax fibres have also 5 times better dampening properties than glass, which makes the ski nicer to drive with an harmonized flex.

SWAY (finalist 2115 ISPO award) – IDRIS (2013 ISPO gold winner, category offiste) – EARLYBIRD (2015 ISPO gold winner, category touring)

Judging by the amount of awards won by these small sized manufacturers, ampliTex flax fabrics is ranking up to become a leading layup technology!
