Make hard-charging second nature.
The Dark Star's natural inclination is to float and slash big pow lines. Early rise rocker camber with full camber starting near the back foot, a mid-wide body with a large nose, and a stiff notched tail all contribute to superb float in powder and confidence landing jumps and drops.
MATERIALS & BUILD
To achieve the highest possible quality, we handbuild your ski cores, blending hard maple, white ash, and fir. All Igneous skis have quartersawn hard maple sidewalls, which provide superior impact resistance to ABS and higher structural integrity than P-tex.
Depending on your construction profile, varying weights of premium composite stitched triaxial fiberglass or carbon will enforce the stiffness and torsional rigidity of your skis. Bulletproof Kevlar protects from rocks and strategically placed rubber foil dampens chatter on crud.
Typically found only on World Cup skis but found on all Igneous skis, sintered graphite bases are fastest, hold more wax, and are always all black. We stone grind them and apply a medium-coarse cross structure, base conditioner, and warm wax with cold wax overlay. Precision-tuned, hand-filed and polished oversized hardened steel edges are strong, fast, and provide both durability and tuning longevity.
Igneous wood topsheets lend unique character to our skis and also provide additional rigidity. Wood is the original high-tensile, cross-linked polymer matrix, and with our high-performance epoxy, the topsheet significantly stiffens flex.
We also gladly work with local artists on custom art skis. For maximum performance, optional carbon topsheets increase response and reduce weight.
CARE & WARRANTY
Igneous provides tuning and care instruction.
Skis are warrantied for defects in materials and craftsmanship for three years or the equivalent of one 100-day season. All service is factory direct.
When you get those "pins & needles" in your fingertips as you unleash a huge backside UUUUUUGGGGHHHH you then know your sword is your own. #quiverstick
