After 10 years of research, with 5 years of developing & testing designs built by our own hands, Fauna Skis launched Their line of beautiful, wood finished, factory-produced skis.
When designing the Pioneer they set out to make a ski to discover a new country for yourself, whatever the conditions. Be it slack-country, side country, or the back-country, Fauna wanted the Pioneer to take you on an adventure. After multiple prototypes they finally settled on a construction that weighed just 1.7kg/ski, it was a perfect ski for skiing all day, whether it’s out hiking, touring, or simply charging about the resort. The medium-length turn radius, versatile rocker and directional sidecut will let you ride with confidence whether there is fresh snow on the ground, days old crust or you’re on hard-pack.
All Fauna production skis are constructed in small batches by a specialist factory, based in the Czech Republic. Using the best quality materials available, after extensive development and testing on mountains across the world.
|True Ski Length||Dimensions (mm)||Radius|
All the skis use 2.2x2.5mm hardened steel edges. These are thicker and stronger than the industry standard, however the 3/4 length wrap also reduces the swing weight of the ski.
The bases are 1.8mm thick using P-Tex 3000. This sintered race quality base is 50% thicker than industry standard, more resistant to impact damage and core shots.
The full wood core is constructed using full length stringers of strong lively Ash and super light Paulownia.
