Audi Carbon Ski

The Audi Concept Design Munich designed and developed the Audi Carbon Ski concept that combines technology from the motorsports and winter sports industries.

The Audi Carbon Ski has wooden core plus layers of aluminum and titanium, all covered in a carbon case.

At 1,550 grams (with a ski length of 170 cm), the ski will be about 200 grams lighter than comparable models.

The concept was developed into a serial production product in collaboration with sportswear brand Head and the German Ski Association.

“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,” said Wolfgang Egger, Head of Design for the Audi Group.

“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.”

In January 2011, as part of the most famous downhill race in the world – the Hahnenkamm race in Kitzbühel – customers were able to test the first prototypes of the Audi Carbon Ski.

In addition to extensive tests by specialists from Head and the German Ski Association, these results will contribute to the ability to offer a perfected ski.

The Audi Carbon Ski may become available already in winter 2011/2012.
