ALL- MOUNTAIN FREERIDE

About Us

After 10 years of research, with 5 years of developing & testing designs built by our own hands, we have finally launched our line of beautiful, wood finished, factory-produced skis.

We got into freeskiing through the park and as such have began with developing a park ski, the Alparka. Taking on known problems in park skis, like edge cracks with thicker edges, while still keeping high performance and keeping the skis looking good.

As with our own journey in freeskiing, following on from the park, we began to explore beyond the groomed snow. Reflecting this our all-mountain freeride ski, the Pioneer, will be following shorty on from the Alparka, coming autumn this year.

All our production skis are built in small batches built in a specialist factory, based in the Czech Republic using the best quality materials available, after extensive development in the UK and testing on mountains across the world.

JUST HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS

 

Gun Stock Sidewalls

Walnut sidewalls are the material of choice for their sustainability, durability and hardness, for strong impact resistance and power transmission. If it’s durable enough to be taken to war as gunstocks, then it’s durable enough for sidewalls. Finished with teak oil to harden & seal against moisture.

Wood Veneer Topsheet

Sustainably sourced wood veneer, using marquetry to give the skis a traditional look for the 21st century. The topsheet and sidewalls are coated with a layer of epoxy, resulting in a durable, moisture and UV resistant finish.

1.8mm THICK P-TEX 3000 BASE

Race ski quality sintered base material that is 50% thicker than industry standard making a fast running, durable base material that is resistant to impact damage and core shots. Die-cut with the Fauna logo tip & tail.

Paulownia & Ash Core

A full wood core combining stringers of strong, lively ash used in our freestyle skis, with one of the fastest growing trees in the world, the super light, yet proportionally strong Paulownia. Giving  responsive, yet light wider freeride skis.

2.2x2.5mm THICK STEEL EDGES

Thicker than industry standard steel edges in both height & width, to fight the well known scourge of edge cracks & blow-outs from impacts to give longer lasting, durable skis. Using 3/4 edge wrap to decrease the swing weight of the skis allowing the tips to flex, reducing the chance of delamination.

Tri-Axial Fibreglass Reinforcement

Fibreglass matting weaved in 3 directions to give tip to tail and torsional stiffness and strength to help edge hold, power transfer and control. Plus, an extra layer of full width fibreglass matting to give extra screw retention and added strength under-foot to transfer power from the bindings.

Uni Directional Carbon Bands

Full length carbon bands to give the skis energy, extra rebound & pop.

Screen Printed Wood Veneer Topsheet

Animal designs drawn by professional tattoo artists exclusively for Fauna Skis, screen printed onto the wood veneer.
Giving the skis a natural, vibrant, modern look.

Laminated Ash Cores

Vertically laminated bars ash which creates a strong, lively, responsive core at the heart of our freestyle skis.

Bi-Axial Carbon reinforcement

Carbon fibre matting weaved at ±45° to tips of the skis giving the skis a torsional stiffness boost. Used in combination with fibreglass to add the needed strength for freeride skis with minimal weight gain.
