The products' key features are high performance, sustainability and functional design. The sustainable SPINNOVA® material is laminated to the PUSU ski woodcore to replace carbon and glass fibres. Based on vigorous testing, initial results show that SPINNOVA® reinforced skis improves skiing experience and provides long-lasting performance and durability. Moreover, SPINNOVA® materials are safer to process than conventional composite materials.
- It's been clear to us since the beginning that our fibre can be used in multiple ways. This is a great example of how SPINNOVA® fibres can be used in composites, and there are plenty of other exciting opportunities in the composites area in the future. We're happy that PUSU saw the potential in SPINNOVA® fibre as well. We expect to create sustainable skis without compromising excellent performance, says
PUSU has been making skis and snowboards from sustainably sourced wood since 2016, and their philosophy is to maximize the use of natural materials. Ski manufacturing has traditionally relied on non-renewable materials like plastic, glass fibre, carbon fibre and costly metal blends. Winter-loving alpine skiers are now, however, more and more keen on alternatives that contribute to climate change as little as possible.
- We strongly believe that focusing on quality and natural materials creates the best and the most sustainable products for the environment and the user. Working with the SPINNOVA® fibre seems to prove we're right - we have received outstanding feedback from professional test skiers using PUSU x SPINNOVA® skis, says PUSU founder and CEO
