The Audi Carbon Skis weigh in at a mere 960 grams each with their light weight and extreme stiffness proving a perfect combination for carving fast, graceful lines through powder. Speaking on the concept stunning design Audi’s Head of Design Wolfgang Egger said: “As a long-time partner and sponsor of the German Ski Association, a ski produced by Audi is a logical consequence of this partnership. This is how the Audi Carbon Ski concept came about. And the ski’s brilliant handling characteristics have been confirmed by professionals from the sport.”

He added: “The serial-production ski was able to borrow from the concept study, and it features outstanding technical properties. At the same time, its minimalist design underscores the technical nature of the carbon.”
