For Featherweights: On-snow feel in the lightest
and lowest ski. Carbon composite shaft
and small wheels. Best for skiers less than
140 lbs (64 kg). But no weight limit.

BREADTH 40MM, RATCHET REAR,
WHEEL SPEED 2
WEIGHT: 1830G LENGTH: 720MM
BEARINGS: PRECISION SWENOR SEALED
To make Swenor composite shafts, laminates (thin plies)
of lightweight wood are sandwiched and wrapped by layers
of carbon fiber and/or fiberglass. These composite
layers are bonded together with space age epoxy resins
in a special mold that gives the skis their slight Nordic
camber. Cap models are further wrapped in a
Composite laminate construction is successful because the various materials act together. Each material can overcome deficits in the others. This allows Swenor to engineer a ski that feels as if you are skiing on snow, and, at the same time, can handle the demanding rigors of the harsh road environment.
• Lightweight wood is at the core to absorb and dampenroad vibrations, thus reducing skier fatigue.
• Fiberglass is added to further dampen vibrations, and serves as a lightweight method of increasing stiffness, strength and durability in order to withstand impacts from objects that will be encountered on road surfaces.
Carbon Fiber replaces some wood and fiberglass to further decrease weight on the Carbon Fibre shaft.
• Cap is a thin foil material added as a further protective barrier against the elements on Cap models.
• Lightweight front and rear aluminum wheel forks are attached to the exterior of composite shafts. This three-part shaft fork system further insulates the skier from harsh road shock.
