CUSTOM MADE HIGH PERFORMANCE ART FOR THE LUXURY ALPINE LIFESTYLE
The word "Foil" describes the effortless, elegant movement of an object across any surface... Foil Skis are providing maximum joy & effortless movement through nature's most majestic creation...snow.
FOIL, THE BIRTH OF WHAT SKIING WAS MEANT TO BE
Born in Northeast Italy near the Austrian Alps, Foil Skis are the result of a tireless pursuit for perfection. Foil has spent countless years researching, developing and testing Foil skis with a singular goal in mind: to create a ski of World Cup performance, in perfect balance with the body, in harmony with nature and one that aesthetically celebrates the timeless beauty of skiing.
ART IN PROGRESS
At Foil, we consider ourselves perfectionists with an insatiable desire to achieve the ultimate balance between function & style. For this reason, each Foil ski is a unique work of art, a blending of natural beauty and precise performance, able to communicate immediately with each skier in terms of lightness, strength, stability and flotation. From telemark to slalom, from freeriding to mountaineering, all Foil models are the result of intense research and precision craftsmanship aimed at transforming the act of skiing into an unforgettable experience. Foil provides a skiing sensation that brings only one thought to mind...pure pleasure.
In addition to their stunning vintage aesthetics, what elevates Foil skis above all others is their proprietary combination of materials and processes. Like a master chef’s gourmet recipe, Foil’s experimentation has led to discovering the precise blend of premium ingredients from the ash / paulownia wood cores to the bamboo sidewalls; from the stainless steel edges to the nano-graphite racing bases. This, combined with Foil’s unparalleled pressing and finishing processes has created a ski unlike any other; a ski that becomes a perfect extension of the skier’s body, providing precise balance, flex, torsion control and “feel” for the mountain.
“After one run on Foils, I knew I had discovered that ‘sensation’ I’d been seeking my entire career…the effortless joy of skiing!”
Klaus Heidegger, former World Cup Champion skier
Every Foil ski is individually handcrafted and customized to each client’s specifications and each Foil ski package includes custom-designed, high-performance bindings, hand-stitched poles and a bespoke travel bag made from the finest full grain leather. The client’s initials are beautifully engraved onto an exquisite medallion seamlessly inset near the tail of the skis in addition to having their personal monogram elegantly affixed to the travel bag.
From day one, Foil was conceived to be much more than a ski. It was born to be a lifestyle; one that naturally expresses luxury, individuality and achievement. Foil was designed for the most demanding and discerning of tastes...and those who are ready to finally know the true meaning of effortless joy!
