zai - born in the mountains, and it's not just a metaphor as its core is made of 50 million years old stone - green gneiss - a unique type of granite. Enormous temperature-pressure conditions during its formation period made it capable of withstanding titanic compressive load. The stone also has a vibration damping property. From shear stress, the stone is protected by the patented CFS technology - allowing it to bend without breaking. Through a combination of unique properties, there is a great advantage - a completely new material with an incredible combination of compressive strength, flexibility, damping properties and a negative coefficient of thermal expansion - in short, an ideal material for skis. You can see the rock-solid heart of zai ski through the tiny window:
It is worth noting that such exceptional quality ski comes not only from the revolutionary materials but also quality control system, permeated by the company's philosophy - the highest quality without compromise. The system provides close attention to details at every stage from the selection of materials to final finishing.
Thanks to new technologies and special quality control zai skis are characterized by increased durability. For example, the deviation of the calibration parameters was below 10% after ski racing in Canada at a distance of more than 1000 kilometers (620 miles). Swiss company even had to make the stainless steel edges of all brand's skis wider, so that they could withstand a much bigger number of sharpenings.
It is important to emphasize - despite the fact that as a part of the composite material we use a stone and the width of bottom edges is increased, the resulting material by specific weight is not inferior to aluminum in lightness. The company zai has used this material in its first ski collection - Spada. For the winter season 2016-2017, the company has released a new line of skis of this series: Spada 155, 166 Spada, Spada Spada 174 and 188.
zai ski will be precisely calibrated using "Flexast" system for achieving flexibility at 19 points along the entire length of the ski. Each model zai ski has its own unique character and comes in only one size.
To find your ski model, you need to study the characteristics of each model. Choosing model of ski, use the following data about the features of models of the Spada series:
|width in mm||radius in m||weight||length|
|front||middle||tail||front||middle||tail||in g||in mm|
Spada has a relatively flat camber compared to other piste skis. It is also less shaped and wider, which gives the greater versatility in a variety of snow conditions.
A unique multi-radius, different flex zones along the ski's length and varied camber design provide superior carving and turning ability.
How to choose the right Ski length
The right model of ski you can choose based on your height - the right ski length usually corresponds to your height minus 10 cm. However the rule is quite universal, there are three main factors, which should also be taken into account for more accurate selection of your ski model: height, weight and type of track/your style.
