A specific virtual design process helps to create this finely attuned and perfected product. All of their skis have a stiffness, high torsional rigidity, low weight and a long lasting agility..
The new Outgrown range for the upcoming season of 2012 / 2013 is the result of continued efforts to perfect the already high quality products. It is an all mountain ski that features a range of specifications, giving owners a real performance on all kinds of surface. It is carved to allow a pleasant ride on the slopes while at the same time a high torsion means that owners can go for hard pack piste skiing. The skis themselves are light and wide enough for powder skiing to be a real possibility.
Outgrown skis consist of a wooden core of hard and dense European beech, a light European popler on the sides and a tough water resistant Robinia is used for the side walls. However the most intriguing and innovative aspect is the triaxaiola basalt fabric that sandwiches the core. This substance is pure crushed and heated volcanic basal rock developed by Grown skis for this purpose. A European cherry wood forms the the top sheet with inlets out of European walnut. All of the wood is carefully covers with layers of natural linessed oil.
All of the wood is taken from sustainable forests in carefully managed European facilities. The volcanic basalt was chosen to replace the more conventional glass and carbon fibers because of its far smaller carbon footprint.
