Carbon is the 6th element on the periodic table. Hence the name. C6 Skis are Designed and Hand Made in New Zealand by specialists in carbon fibre construction and composite structural design. All of our skis are produced using pre impregnated Carbon fibre that is autoclave cured. They are sandwich construction, utilising end grain balsa wood core. This produces a durable, torsionally stiff, super light, high performance ski, that is unparalleled for response, edge hold, and pop.
