G3 uses only premium carbon fibre laminates in the AXLE and SCAPEGOAT splitboards. These are the same 100% multi-directional stitch bonded fabrics used in aerospace industries. The AXLE is made with a carbon fibre matrix for torsional stiffness & improved edge control, while the SCAPEGOAT has 2 full layers of triaxial stitched carbon fibre for a strong but light, torsionally stable splitboard. To optimize the flex, rigidity and power transfer specific to each ski, we meticulously engineer the orientation, amount and structure of every layer of carbon above and below the core.
WET VS. DRY LAYUP
G3 starts with dry and flexible sheets of carbon fibre for each splitboard. This allows us to use exactly the right amount of resin for each board’s size, weight, and the amount of carbon laminate. This takes advantage of high precision compaction and an optimized fibre to resin ratio. Our process minimizes unnecessary resin weight and maximizes the carbon’s contribution to flex, rigidity and power transfer.
