After 10 years of research, with 5 years of developing & testing designs built by their 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 2.2×2.5mm 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.
“Really nice looking versitile ski for those looking to do it all . Pretty light for the size so it would match just aswell with a lightweight touring binding, or a downhill binding! ”
