Swiss Massiv Slalom Carver Ski
The Swiss Massiv Slalom Carver Ski is a high-performance carving ski that allows you to make short, dynamic, and very precise turns on hard surfaces. Blending titanium layers with a solid wood core allows for responsiveness through long and short turns.
Also, you’ll be able to stick gracefully in tight spaces such as trees without sliding out from underneath. Due to its lightweight yet durable construction, made up primarily of bamboo sidewalls, it makes sure your glide playfulness remains intact. The same applies to every ounce of emotions felt during each ride.
Skies that we recommend for this kind of skiing are:
- Entlebucher Yew
- Elm Engraved
- Elm Engraved with Tip Protection
- Black Engraved
- Elm Foil
- Elm Foil with Tip Protection
For any Slalom Carver Ski you choose, you can pick the suitable size and the binding you’d like to have. Every ski is designed considering the skier’s body weight and driving style. For in-depth information about how to choose the right ski size, click here.
What makes Swiss Massiv skis so unique?
There are three primary elements used in the development of Swiss Massiv skis:
You might wonder how the creator managed to create skis that are both technically and visually striking. The secret is in individually sourced local Swiss wood incorporated with bamboo, using uniquely created construction techniques.
A pair of Swiss Massiv skis consists of 30 individual parts. To build them properly, the owner created a process of almost 50 work steps which take about nine hours of labor. So, with all the waiting periods for drying, a pair of skis takes about three weeks to produce.
Since Swiss Massiv skis are hand-made, each ski is a one-of-a-kind product. Plus, the limited production – with each pair having an individual number – expresses the brand’s unique identity even more. Every pair of skis has its unique serial number engraved in stainless steel at the back.
Not to mention the fact that the owner, René Unternährer, creates these skis in the very heart of Switzerland. Swiss Massiv skis are the outcome of his passion and quest for precision crafting of this highly complex product. That’s why he was able to create such a ski that performs with a supremely comfortable glide.
This is how the owner himself described the start of the creation process:
I don’t simply buy wood to make my skis. I buy a tree because the character of the skis starts with a tree.
