“With my style of skiing, and the terrain I go to, I need something that is lightweight to travel with across long distances and big changes in elevation. But that access is all about getting to mountains and faces that I can then ski in my style, so we were looking for materials that would keep the ski light and manageable, but also stiff and strong enough to charge with. bCores™ were super important in making sure we could achieve that impossible balance between super lightweight and still solid performance”
“As mountain guide and part time ski patroller, I need skis I can fully trust at all times, to do my job under all kinds of conditions. Been using Black Diamond skis with bCores™ for the last 5 years and have not been disappointed once.”
“Bcomp and DPS hold a long history together— the relationship predates both companies, when the founders of both ventures collaborated on DB Skis. These days, DPS relies on Bcomp as a key partner to provide production and engineering support for the bCores™, that make up a critical component of our award-winning, lightweight Tour1 category of skis.”
“bCores™ fill up the technological gap that was left by 15 years of evolution of ski shapes and practices. The best performance-to-weight ratio core material, that enables skiers to pursue progression and push limits a notch further.”
“Innovative materials are crucial in ski design. I’ve been a professional skier for 20 years, and designing all of my own skis for the last 17 years. The lightweight nature of the bCores™ makes them by far and away the best ski core material I have used.”
“When being a competitor on the FWT and also afterwards, I always wanted a light ski that would be strong enough for my type of skiing. I like speed and jumps. With bCores™ I found the best answer to my needs.”
“By integrating the bCores™ into my freeride skis I could drastically reduce their weight without compromising stability. I could therefore respond to the consumer needs for light and stable freeride skis.”
