Are you hitting the ski-slopes in the near future? Here’s something you’d want to pack along. Unleashed by Foil, a company that loves using expensive materials to craft its wares, these bespoke skis are truly what an extreme-sport day-dream is made of. Foil has unveiled four new skis, Oro-Nero, Rossastro, Bianco and Moca, each crafted from premium materials and unique. While the Moca skis are made from African Rosewood, the Bianco and Rossastro are made from Blond African Rosewood and Mahogany. The Oro Nero skis on the other hand, are crafted from 8000-year-old Bog Oak!
All of these finishes are available in two styles, the Classico, which is an all-mountain ski, and the Riserva, a slalom ski. To top it all, the skis come with high performance pivot bindings made from brushed aluminum. These can be nickel-plated, platinum-plated, or even plated in 14k gold! Each ski by Foil is sold directly to an end-user, and is customized to the owner’s requirements and specifications. The skis also come engraved with the client’s initials. All of this comes with the hefty price tag of $50,000 for the entire package, including the customized skis, the poles, the bindings and a naturally tanned fine Italian leather travel bag.
