FELS Design Features

Patented Design:  Relationship between Waist, Camber & Boot Sole Midpoint

The percentage to which the waist and apex of the camber curve is offset from the middle of the ski’s running surface as defined by the width at tip and tail in relationship to the skiers position on the ski is key to creating a new turn shape that provides ski performance advantages.  This ratio is designed and adjusted per each specific model.

Quality First

Blending top quality composite materials for specific geometries are central to producing high performance skis. From innovative core designs to racing bases the FELS line incorporates only the best selection of materials to enhance the performance of shape.

ATTITUDE High-Performance

Length: 163cm /Waist: 87.5mm / Tip: 132mm / Tail: 115mm / Radius: 14m / Weight: 1575g

Sidecut/Camber: Patented offset waist & camber design with 190mm subtle tip rise profile for new enhanced turn-shape performance in variable conditions.

Construction: Maple power core triaxial dual layered fiberglass sandwich with Sintered UHME-PE an ultra-high quality glide base. See High Performance Power Dual Core.

Description: An incredible versatile playful ski that is easy to maneuver on any run yet possesses the ability to carve up the runs like a pro.  The 14 m radius is great for short and quick performance turns and yet when opened up for cruising the ski self-dampens for impressive stability. Fantastic choice for a wide range of skier types in a wide range of conditions.

Sidecut/Camber: Patented offset waist & camber design with 185mm subtle tip rise profile for new enhanced turn-shape performance in variable conditions.

Construction: Maple power core triaxial dual layered fiberglass sandwich with Sintered UHME-PE an ultra-high quality glide base. See High Performance Power Dual Core.

Description: The new offset patented geometry offers an optimum turn shape that enhances performance. The 172cm with a 89.5mm waist is designed for the ultimate ride off every resort lift. A perfect ski for switching conditions and terrain encountered throughout the day. From ice to moguls to soft packed powder and even a fresh layer of snow on the runs this ski will handle the terrain with ease.  Interested in carving at speed? –the 172cm will offer an exhilarating ride on every run!  A 16M radius is perfect for the variation of turn sizes need for cross-mountain performance.

Length: 178cm / Waist: 98mm / Tip: 137mm / Tail: 120mm / Radius: 19.5m / Weight: 1895g

Sidecut/Camber: Patented offset waist & camber design with 200mm subtle tip rise profile for enhanced new turn-shape performance in variable conditions.

Construction: Maple power core triaxial dual layered fiberglass sandwich with Sintered UHME-PE an ultra-high quality glide base. See High Performance Power Dual Core.

Description: The new offset patented geometry offers an optimum turn shape that enhances performance. The 178cm is designed with a 98mm waist and it excels on firm and soft packed power conditions upon varying terrain. The 19.5m turn radius makes the ski a breeze to handle fast swooping carving speeds on groomed or variable packed powder. In more diverse terrain its adaptive dual flex profile provides a quick turn response. The fore body to tip camber transition provides a smooth and balanced turn through changing conditions while providing impeccable stability.

Construction Details

Material is central to performance so only top grade wood, wood core composites and laminates are used for the FELS line:

  • High Performance: The FELS high-performance design utilizes Canadian maple, which is optimal for strength and stability, and is sandwiched with triaxial fiberglass which is specifically developed for high performance skis to obtain the optimal combination of stiffness profile and torsional rigidity in combination with the wood core taper profile.
     
  • High Performance Power Dual Core**: The FELS patented offset camber & sidecut shape combined with the Thoroughbred Power Dual Core is designed to surprise even the most accomplished skier.  Combining our technologies has resulted in the most unique and high performance ski available. A maple power lens tapering into ultra-light bComp in the tip and tail zones, combined with carbon/flax* and the only pre-cambered core profile in the industry is our ultimate ski for skiers seeking a lightweight high performance ski.

*The lighter weight carbon design incorporates triaxial carbon fiber / ampliTex reinforcement around the Power Dual Core core.  Carbon is a great weight saver, but by itself can produce an unpredictable ski. AmpliTex is a next-generation natural flax fibre material that contributes to the stiffness, but most importantly has great dampening characteristics. The combination of the snappy carbon with dampening ampliTex makes this one of the smoothest fun-riding carbon ski composites available.

Power Dual Core**

Power Dual Core is the ultimate core packed with technology features, and 20% lighter than FELS High Performance. 

Power Lens

A solid maple lens is at the center for amazing grip, energy and stability that comes from handpicked, hardwood cores.

Feather Tip & Tail

The power maple lens tapers into light-weight bCore in the tip & tail for low swing weight so you can initiate turns with ease yet benefit from the power derived from the middle of the ski’s maple core.

Preload Camber

Precision machining builds the ski camber into the core (conventional cores are flat). This unique process means that the core builds carving pressure earlier in your turns, making them easier to initiate and offers incredible release of energy between turns. This release of energy is controlled to better propel the skier into a superior balanced position moving between turns while offering incredible edge grip.

Additional Material Features

Base

A fast gliding base makes skiing easier, and of course keeps you moving smoothly with all the speed you need. All FELS skis include sintered UHMW-PE, which is a world-cup race quality base of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene with high quality carbon black, modified with special fluor and paraffin based additives, for better gliding in a wide range of conditions. Great wax hold reduces the frequency needed to wax and keep great glide.

Edges

Great performance needs high quality edges. FELS skis incorporate edges featuring high wear resistance, toughness, optimal lubricity, optimized adhesion properties, high breaking strength and high corrosion resistance.

Tip and Tail Protection

It may seem like a detail, but the tips and tails can take a beating on and off the slopes. The FELS line includes protection. A titanal layer is included in the tip and Elastolan inserts protect the tail.
