The handmade skis, poles and ski bag have been designed exclusively for Bentley, with input from Bentley’s own team. The skis combine patented technology that makes the product range ‘one-of-a-kind’. New materials deployed in the skis will be a world first.

The skis will be a limited edition of 250 numbered pairs. They will be manufactured using Zaiìra; a novel composite material containing carbon fibers specially developed by zai. It is used on the skis’ top layer in combination with natural rubber in the central part, as well as carbon fabric in composition with chrome steel in the torsion part. Additionally, long carbon fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites (LFRTP) are being used in the “zai for Bentley Supersport” skis.

The ski poles also demonstrate a new technology – ExoGrid is used for the first time in the Bentley skis. A unique combination of titan and carbon fabric reduces weight and guarantees stability. It is currently used for golf club shafts.

The ski bag is also custom-designed and manufactured by zai.

Zai was formed in 2004, based in the Swiss village of Disentis. The high-end manufacturer of ski products, helmets and goggles, focuses on hand-built craftsmanship using unique materials and patented technology.

Zai launched the world’s first and only skis containing a stone core, “zai Spada”, followed by “Hublot All Black by zai” skis featuring a natural rubber top layer. The “zai for Bentley” ski range will be a limited, numbered quantity. They will be priced at $9800 (6800 EUR, 5900 GBP). T he skis will be available to order in January 2010 and retailed via zai distributors.
