ZAI ski "Testa" making of

ski zaitesta, SwitzerlandThe top layer of the ski is made of French Walnut of the highest quality, grown in sustainably managed forests. ZAI works directly with the supplier, therefore, has an opportunity to select the best wood samples. Walnut provides natural damping, improving smoothness and manageability of your ride.

Besides, it is a notably durable material. The wooden surface of testa ski has been tested in extreme conditions, including more than 700 hour-long exposure to low temperatures and salt water. During manufacturing, under the influence of the generated heat from a ski press, resin of carbon fiber permeate the wood grain, making the walnut surface even tougher and the ski more monolithic.

The completed ski is hand-finished and polished with natural wood oils, which ensures stunning views of the ski, keeping the natural beauty of wood. Each model of skis has its own wood pattern, which gives to every ski its unique character, that will reveal more and more brightly from season to season.



This plastic fiber is 60% stronger than carbon fiber and up to 15 times stronger than steel. It is also ultra-light and extremely abrasion resistant material.

DYNEEMA, unlike other materials, does not become brittle at low temperatures. zai is the world’s only ski manufacturer, who works with this highly sophisticated material.

Trim of the stainless steel passing through the center of the ski ensures outstanding torsion dynamics. Rugged stainless steel upper edges protect the skis against bumps and scratches, extending the quality and duration of their best service.

Both the steel and wood can be reworked to keep your testa ski looking best for the very long time. Thanks to the natural process of aging of a tree, your skis will become more elegant and graceful from season to season.
