Zai Bentley 2015

Since 2003, Zai have been handcrafting skis in the Swiss Alps from the very finest materials without compromising on quality or performance. This quality can been seen as Zai skis lose just 5% tension after 100 days of use, compared to 25% over 30 days for mass-produced skis. In partnership with Bentley, Zai has crafted a limited edition ski that brings the same level of performance and sophistication as Bentley cars, boasting the ‘Flying B’ logo on its flared tips and a striking diamond motif. With zai’s signature multi-radius, reactive camber design and a mix of UD carbon and zaiíra® flex zones the Bentley delivers remarkable turning ability, for a ride that feels smooth and solid on all terrain.

Glossary

Zaiíra®:An ultra-lightweight synthesis of the most modern reinforcing fibres and thermoplastic compounds, zaiíra® improves flexibility, stability and durability. Importantly, it also has far better damping qualities than regular ski carbons.
Natural Rubber:Applied to the upper surface of a ski, natural rubber helps to absorb impacts when riding on rough or icy snow. Not only does this make for a smoother ride, it’s also kinder to your knees.
Cedarwood:All zai skis have cores made from bonded cedarwood staves. Cedarwood is expensive and complex to work with, but it is also incredibly light, offers excellent resilience (it returns to its original shape after bending), and has a consistent grain that resists warp. The cedarwood cores of zai spada and giubileum skis have integrated CFS® (carbon fibre stone) to provide extra damping.
Carbon Fibre:zai uses pre-impregnated UD (unidirectional) endless carbon fibres in an uncured thermoset plastic matrix. The fibres are applied to the ski by hand and in varying thicknesses, allowing tension to be precisely controlled at strategic points. The ‘pre-pregs’ are then heat-and-pressure cured during the pressing process, resulting in an extremely strong, lightweight ski structure with excellent torsion dynamics. Because zai ski designs are arrived at through repeated real-world testing (as opposed to being computer-generated) various thicknesses and arrangements of carbon fibres can be tried during the prototype phase. Only when exactly the right combination and placement of carbon fibres has been achieved is a ski approved for production.
Stainless steel:Zai is the only ski-maker to build its skis with stainless steel upper edges. The hardened HRC 50 steel we use for this is extremely rugged and resistant to corrosion. Steel upper edges protect the ski against bumps and knocks, and can be re-worked to as-new condition during service.
