[touring-freeride-powder-shredder]

You like to climb and go on big tours, you prefer a fat ski to surf the powder in high speeds, you enjoy shredding downhill in steady curves, the COUTURIER will take you to new limits.

The COUTURIER is a large ULTRALIGHT powder-sweeper, a ski for touring and shredding. It is easy to handle and extremely versatile to all snow and mountain conditions.

The CARBON ultra-lightness makes it sprightly and energetic. The long camber makes it steady and dominating.

The long and high nose tip lets the ski arise and float on the ski and permits you to lean more forward or to stay equilibrated NO MORE LEANING BACK. Having the gravity of your body balanced and centred helps you save a lot of energy and permits you additional reactivity. A surf feeling experience that is incredible.

The long camber guarantees a steady curves and minimal disturbances when going fast.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Neoteric Ultralight series are a real mountain machines for climbing and ski-mountaineering

Is a real mountain machine for climbing and ski-mountaineering. A strong mountain-tool to go on any expedition, and to ski steady and safe downhill, ensuring all necessary attributes for the steep and fast. Being ultra-light, the ski is shifted and displaced easily which makes it extremely energetic and interactive.

The ski is vivid and follows your movements instantaneously, maximal precision and reactivity in the snow. The ski is made for a climber that demands a snow-multi-tool, it handles any situation and provides outstanding security.

– Uphill oriented [touring-elevation-exploration = ELEPLORE]
– Very well suited for long climbs and tours
– Mutant ski, versatile off-piste and on-piste, one for all ski, good on any snow conditions
– Extremely light, precise in the curves, grip in the steep.
– Camber gives substantial contact with the snow
– Bottom sheet pro quality race level with 15% carbon [ISOSPORT 7500]
– High rising super nose spatula minimizing the risk to plunge into the snow
– Pro components, tail shock absorber, binding inlays, steel race edges
– Pro-flex and stiff-torsion, enhanced by vibration absorbing technology

The NEOTERIC lets you feel the complete ski from tip to tail at all times, it has more surface that is in contact with the snow consequently providing supplementary stability enabling higher speed, keeping the ski steady.

The ski, in combination of the ULTRALIGHT CARBON FIBER CONSTRUCTION, is extremely light and permits you to change your ski position any instant.

The carbon intensifies this featherweight ski feeling while the aramid fibers bring back the natural balance and comfortable touch. Turns come even and regular.

The extensive surface contact generally guarantees a domination of snow. The PRO-FLEX has been engineered to accentuate the neoteric camber giving feeling that is evolutionary. Any snow or mountain is welcome always having an agile, bustling and reactive ski experience with immense grip and control.

The ski is made for dedicated, proactive, energetic skiers. The neoteric has early and proportional high front rise that eliminates the tip plunging in the snow, permitting you to ski relaxed at midpoint.

CONSTRUCTED with one layer of carbon-aramid fiber on top a paulownia wood core and underneath one layer of carbon-aramid fiber. Strengthened in the upper middle and below the foot by an additional inlet of fiberglass, two phenol plates inlayed to reinforce the screws of the bindings, an X-tape of newest carbon fiber and a ribbon of carbon-Kevlar in the tip. Manufactured where all fiber-layers, above and below, completely traverse the ski covering the sidewalls, this technic adds a lot of strength. Carbon, when mixed with aramid fibers remains extremely light but manages to absorb a high percentage of vibrations.

MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS

UL COMPOSITION
01BASE SHEET IS 7510

www.isosport.com

• Black carbon 10-15%
• Made of premium crosslink polyethylene.
• Good abrasion resistance, very low stress level.
• Modified with wax for better gliding.

02STAINLESS EDGE

www.waelzholz.com

The steel racing edge provides smooth flex and minimal friction resistance.
The main characteristics of stainless steel are as follows:
• High durability
• Good ductility
• Optimal gliding behaviour
• Improved adhesion
• High mechanical strength

03RUBBER

www.haberkorn.ch

Thin rubber used between the metal edge and fiberglass layers to minimize shearing-induced delamination.
Equalising temperature-related expansion and differing stress-strain coefficients.
Suitability for use over a wide temperature range.
Vibration damping up to the point of component decoupling.

0408CARBON FIBER

www.saertex.com

Carbon fibers or carbon fibres are fibers about 5–10 micrometres in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms.
Carbon fibers have several advantages such as:
• High stiffness,
• High tensile strength,
• Low weight,
• High chemical resistance,
• High temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion.
Its main use is to serve as a reinforcement in composite materials, which makes it possible to obtain parts having good mechanical properties while being significantly lighter than metal parts.
These properties have made carbon fiber very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports.

0507FIBER GLASS 60-24

www.saertex.com

E-glass fibre products are particularly resistant to abrasion and vibration and have excellent flexibility. The glass thread has a higher specific resistance (tensile strength/volumetric mass) than that of steel. This feature makes it possible to develop glass threads that reinforce high performance composites.
The main characteristics of Fiberglass are as follows:
• Good resistance to abrasion and vibrations
• Rot-resistant
• Excellent dielectric strength
• Excellent dimensional stability
