In 1996, Aldo Kuonen, the former head of Rossignol Racing, founded the AK ski company. Kuonen's target is achieving a combination of technological excellence and a shared passion for skiing. He wants to bring together enthusiastic skiers from all over the world and the skis make that connection. As a result of his passion, Kuonen creates the AK skis. Only a select few dealers are allowed to sell AK products. The goal is quality, not quantity. Only about 2,000 pairs of skis are produced each year.
AK are skis made by hand in Switzerland, with a special feel, wood core, Titanal sandwich construction and special Elastac top cover.
If AK ORANGE is to be described in short, it would be "Slalom with perfect control and easy transition from GS to SL technology". When you have AK ORANGE under your feet, you feel incredible stability and security thanks to the ELASTAC material. ORANGE loves long turns, speed and uneven tracks. Thanks to the very harmonious flexibility, you can easily perform short turns.

Construction Sandwich Construction
Elastac - a rubber base material that absorbs vibrations, makes skis stable and relieves joint fatigue during prolonged riding.
Sandwich Construction - A special method of bonding the layers, in a sandwich construction, in a humid environment. Different materials such as wood, steel, glass laminate, carbon, polyethylene, etc. are combined. The method creates different specific points on each ski, which allows you to adjust the hardness according to your needs.
Core - The main core material is produced directly in Switzerland from vertically laminated wood slats. Unlike the foam core, the sandwich core has dynamic mechanical properties. The production of such material is expensive as it requires precise selection and drying of the material. The unique core of AK skis ensures their traction, durability and ice performance.
Base - An ultrahigh molecular density race slide was used to optimize the sliding properties.
