FROM OUR CORDILLERA DE LOS ANDES STRAIGHT TO YOUR FEET
Working hand by hand with the earth
"The land we walk through in Chile is millenary, it has ashes and minerals from the past, and that energetic connection is created in us with our land"
WE RESCUE ANCESTRAL KNOWLEDGE FOR DEVOLOPING FUTURE TECHNOLOGIES
In our constant search for innovation we have brought to our skis the technological crossover of all the boards we develop, including snowboard, surfboard, wakeboard and skate, leading the pinnacle of all of them to develop one of our iconic models called TOKI / THE BOSS . Below you can see why it receives this name, and since this model has so much details, we have decided to openly show you how it is constituted in its conception.
ASYMMETRICAL SPOON TIP & TALE 3 SIDECUT SPOTTED STANCE
Double your ski hours with this freeride machineAn easy float and agile turn make it your perfect companion for those magical days where white dust is sucked in every curve. Try the comfort of our pintail shape that runs through the snow as if you were in the water and its sharp tips that support you on dust without effort. These skis really feel like two feathers on the powder.
Contact Point Transition
The Inner Rocker Transition shape, which is applied on all our models, allows for a smooth transition and added edge grip in skis that offer a rocker/camber/rocker format. Our exclusive shape consists in generating a transition shape between the ski´s contact point (which is were the rocker ends), and the begging of the skis´ camber. This eliminates the drag experienced at the tips with rocker shaped skis, adding extra smoothness to ski in the initiation of the turn, with added edge grip.
2S Spotted Stance
Our Directional 2 Sidecut Radius Spotted Stance technology generates a longer sidecut on the back end on the ski, generating less drag at the end of the turn, where speed is increased. This creates increased control, edge grip and stability at the end of each turn (which is precisely the place where you need it). This creates a predictable and stable ski, no matter what is your throttle appetite.
This technology is applied on all of our directional models. Think of this as a drop water falling through the air, wings of an aeroplane or a quille in the water. The objective is to reduce friction and drag, increasing the hydrodynamics of each turn.
SOUTHERN SURFER FISH
Come to Chile and taste how it feels to surf the snow with a real "Pescado"
In our third version we improved on the light weight without sacrificing strength. The fishtail is reinforced with two layers of carbon fiber. In addition, the tip of the skis is made slightly softer to improve smooth flex and flotation, making the ski have a stronger tail for more control and soft tips for easy entry into the curve and easy floatation.
Control your ride and relax your edge to edge shift.
Created in its beginnings to be used by rescue teams, previously known as "Patrol", it is the first ski that we take to peaks where our brand had never reached before. Now it belongs to the high mountain line together with our new model "Wengan Newen", both used mainly by our team of high mountain athletes.
Fr 2021 Improvements
The new Fr from the previous Patrol105 model comes with some improvements not only in its length and width of 1.85mt_140 / 109 / 129_R21, but also regarding its internal structure. -Uniax carbon on its deck and bottom to improve the pop and reaction of the ski. -Triax carbon that notably increases its resistance to twisting, which gives it an unmatched grip and response compared to its predecessor. -More solid woodcore profile to improve flex and dumping (vibration). -The design of its "icebreaker" tail changes from having an edge to a metal plate that improves their durability.-Full 360 ° edges. -Anti dumping (vibration) at the tips-Sidewall ABS + Vds unique in the market, a new anti-vibration technology on the side walls unique and exclusive to awka worldwide. -Ultra thin tips achieving a lower weight in these which notably improves the swing rate (rate or percentage of oscillation to rotation), which also adds great maneuverability and agility. -Rocker Camber Rocker improved with lowride tale profile. -High definition sublimated graphics.
Building skis in Chile has been a huge challenge and it is our Andes Mountains that can attest to the quality of our products.
We trully are "THE MOST ADVANCED SKIS IN THE WORLD" and our technological innovation breaks all the schemes creating a new meaning of skiing.
Santi Aparicio_Awka Ambassador
12 years ago, when Tato came to me with this crazy idea, I never thought he could go so deep in technology inovation. Now a days I feel proud to ski with the best skis I have ever tried, that also, against all paradigms, were raised and born in our ancient and sacred Andes Mountains.
Cristobal "Chopo" Díaz _ Athlete
Nothing responds better to the Andes extreme conditions than the gear born an raised in these mountains. This past years, its technology and design have far exceeded my expectations. I am very honored to ski a pair of Awka’s.
