ORE One 82

Brief description
A handmade ski from the Ore Mountains. The symbiosis of wood, fibreglass, carbon and fleece fibre from Norafin gives this ski special handling characteristics. The flax absorbs shocks and dampens unevenness in the piste, resulting in a very safe and balanced ride. Even at very high speeds, you have a stable and smooth ski on your feet.

Regional characteristics
Ski manufacturing was a tradition in the Ore Mountains until reunification. We are trying to revive this tradition with high-performance products in a classic design. We have been producing skis at the foot of the Fichtelberg since 2016.

Since 2020

Recommendation 1: Always be open to new things and the optimisation of your own product.
Recommendation 2: Thinking outside the box is allowed, just like copying by watching others to get inspiration.
Recommendation 3: Especially in our sports industry, which only lives from marketing innovations, real innovations are a rarity. So there is still a lot of potential here. Especially in terms of sustainability.
