Swiss Five Star uses only top quality natural and high tech products to achieve a durable high performance ski that is comfortably light.
The core of the Five Star consists of strips of vertically laminated wood that are glued together. The individual needs and goals of the skier determine the type of prime wood used, including poplar, beech, ash and other high-grade wood.
Wood is still the best choice for the core of a dynamic ski.
The manufacturing process is elaborate and time consuming. It is also costly, due to the expensive precious wood that is used.
Each ski has its own unique character derived from the different combinations of materials, such as aluminum, fiberglass, carbon fibers, titan and others that are incorporated into the ski.
The base of all Five Star skis is made of a sintered nano carbon coating which is used for racing skis as it facilitates steering and smooth gliding.
