Ski Technology Nordic Ski Technology Laminate Laminates contribute towards the rebound and power transmission of a ski. In our skis we use two different sorts: CARBON FIBREGLASS LAMINATEFIBREGLASS GRIP TECHNOLOGIES A Grip technology provides grip in the kick zone without the need for kick wax. We have three different types: SKINTEC Our high-performance waxless technology, with Mohair skin grip zones, now featured across the range. POSIGRIP 3D Our versatile grip technology used on some of our all-round skis. G2 SYNCRO A grip technology, ideal for newcomers to the classic track. SIDECUTS We have different types of sidecut – from a narrow sidecut for fast racing to wider sidecuts for more stability. BASES All our skis have high-quality bases. These are fast on every snow, can stand up to everything and are easy to maintain:Black base: BI 5000 (World Cup base) BI 4000, 3000, 2000 BI 1500 (Touring base)White base: BI 5000 (World Cup base) SIDEWALLS Putting a sidewall on a cross-country ski helps with steering and power transmission. We have two different sidewalls that feature on our high-performance Redster skis: STEP DOWN SIDEWALL with Densolite sidewall or lightwood sidewall for Redster WC Classics. LIGHTWEIGHT WOOD SIDEWALL for Redster WC Skates. CORES At the core of every ski are the materials that determine how it behaves. We have two different core materials we use in our range: NOMEX An ultra-lightweight material originally used in aerospace. It’s structured like a honeycomb for strength, resilience and liveliness. We also use it in combination with Densolite. NOMEX CORES: Featherlight, Featherlight SDS , Lite, Lite SDS DENSOLITE Light, stable and tough. Densolite is produced in Atomic’s own facilities and comes in three variations: Densolite, High Densolite and Ultra High Densolite. They’re all equally tough, but the High and Ultra High versions are lighter and more dynamic. DENSOLITE CORES: Speedcell, Helium Densolite, Ultra High Densolite, Ultra High Densolite SDS, High Densolite, Densolite CARBON MONOCOQUE CHASSIS This is the special ski construction we use for our top Classic Race ski – the Redster Carbon Classic. This carbon chassis runs the length of the ski (except the tip), making it very light and dynamic for extreme acceleration.
