The first step toward your Igneous skis is determining your shape and construction profile. To start, see the below overviews. We're glad to assist with a detailed discussion to help you determine the perfect shape and construction profile for your skiing style. Next, select your topsheet. Once we've confirmed the whole design over the phone or in-person, Igneous will construct your skis in 2-4 weeks.
The 2017-18 line represents the culmination of 25 years of research and development in the Tetons and other mountain ranges around the world. Each shape and matched camber profile are available in various lengths and widths to fine tune your skis to you. Igneous will also make any full custom shape and camber profile you want.
The construction profile will heavily influence ride characteristics at different speeds and in varying terrain and conditions, as well as determine carry/skinning weight. Select your profile based on your intended application(s). Once you have a profile in mind, we'll work with you to determine your final construction based on your DIN, size, age, and gender.
Maple / Ash
Maple/Ash cores optimize the responsive high-energy ride of Hard Maple with the impact and vibration absorption of White Ash. 22 oz of stitched, triaxial fiberglass enhances torsional rigidity.
Maple / Ash / Fir
Blending Fir with Maple/Ash creates a far lighter ski ideal for pure backcountry and touring. 16 oz of stitched, triaxial fiberglass enhances torsional rigidity.
Maple / Ash / Fir / Carbon (+$99)
|Blending Carbon and Fir with Maple/Ash creates the lightest possible ski while providing optimum performance. 8 oz of stitched, triaxial fiberglass enhances torsional rigidity.
We handbuild your skis' cores based on your construction profile, blending hard maple, white ash, fir, and/or carbon. 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 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' hardwood topsheets not only lend unique character to our skis, they also provide additional rigidity. Wood is the original high-tensile crosslinked polymer matrix, and combined with our high-performance epoxy, the topsheet significantly stiffens flex. Carbon topsheets increase response and reduce weight. Igneous also works with artists on custom topsheet designs.
Igneous provides tuning services and 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.
Igneous has handmade custom skis in Jackson, Wyoming for 25 years. We set out to make the perfect big mountain freeride powder skis that could withstand an entire season of hard-charging in Jackson Hole, a place notorious for devouring skis. That mission remains.
