The Balsa Core is a microlam construction made up of many thin balsa wood stringers stacked side by side, which provide a strong and damp metal like feeling at an extremely light weight. This damp feeling allows skiers to rip through any conditions.
OCHROMA PYRAMIDALE: THE BALSA TREE
We use the fastest growing hardwood in the world for our cores, making our skis rock-solid and environmentally sustainable.
BALSA UNDER A MICROSCOPE: NATURES NATURAL STRENGTH
• Highest strength to weight ratio of any Hardwood.
• Cell geometry provides shock absorption, giving damp metal like performance.
• Strong & light structure due to extremely large cells and thin cell walls.
• 60% Air (cells) and 40% solid material (cell walls).
