TUA SKI, YOUR SKIS
In Italian, TUA means “yours”. And this is the way we intend our skis: something unique and customized on your needs. During the years we were fed up by seeing what’s going on in the mainstream ski industry: all offering the same model of skis, changing graphic and colors year by year.
For this reason, we decided to build something unique: the best performance available skis in the market combined with the best available, performer and natural materials to preserve our beloved mountains and environment.
What makes us different from the mass production is that all our products are design and fully hand made by our “artigiani” with the attention to the details and the quality that you can only find in Italy.
We are independent and we are Italian, and with your support we can invest in what really matter the most: quality, performance and Italian style.
INTRODUCING OUR 2018 LINEUP EXCLUSIVELY FOR KICKSTARTER
Our products are the result of our passion. We test each product we made before offering it to you. We are your guarantee. We offer you an innovative ski feeling, smooth and power at the same time, that it will change forever your ski experience both on and off piste. As we want to combine the best available technology with style and fun, our product range is focused on three models:
UNO, a pure race carve ski to enjoy the steepest and icy slopes;
DUE, a fun all-rounder or backcountry ski to draw your lines both on and off piste;
TRE, our wild stallion for pure powder with full tip rocker and zero chamber.
For each model, you can select the pattern version you prefer: Plain or Stripes.
A model suitable for high-level skiers who want the highest performance of a true racing ski: acceleration, speed, power, and instinct. In the longer measure it is most suitable for large and medium curves, and in size 167 for men and 155 for women it is best suited to steal away from traffic congestion on the slopes. Stay on the edge!
Model designed for true freeride, for those who don’t want to be limited to the slopes. Good floating and good stability combined with exceptional handling make DUE your perfect mate to enjoy your tout terrain experience. Thanks to its excellent compromised weight, it perfectly suitable for using with climbing skins while ski mountaineering or telemarking. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and… go!
A big mountain horse to float on the deep powder with its generous waist (107 mm), and a full tip rocker with an almost zero camber. It’s innovative sidecut makes TRE good also on the piste, while coming back from your latest powder run. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover your limits!

CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS
Handcrafted: All our skis are handcrafted and they have a sandwich construction, and we use an extended pressing process to reduce tension between the layers to a minimum.
Durable: Our dream is to offer you with a long lasting ski. That’s why the core of all our skis is a wooden core, which keeps its flex for longer and gives the ski its alive and natural feeling.
Refined: Looks and style its important, but what really counts is the combination of the materials, the perfect camber, the right shape. We are maniacs for the assembly process.
Mixed all together, we offer you the best ever ski product, in terms of quality and durability:
- With a pure race skis technology construction;
- A sandwich sidewall wood core made in Ash, Poplar, Okumè, Toulipier, Carob, developed depending from type of skis and using
- A double or triple titanal and/or carbon anti-torsion liner for higher stability in feeling turn
Ptex 5000 R Ski base with the lowest friction coefficient
- And, inferior sublimate anti-scratch cap to guarantee a higher graphic protection

Risks and challenges
We are very conscious of the possibility of unforeseen challenges as we are launching the first TUA SKI Series.
Product: We and our artigiani have been building custom-made skis for years now. To launch this series, we have developed many prototypes and tested them extensively over the past years. The manufacturing process, materials and skills needed to produce the series are the same we have mastered producing our custom-made models.
Shipping: TUA ships anywhere in the world. We have established relations with an international shipper to keep lower shipping cost. Rates vary by country. In any case, we will keep you informed.
Manufacturing: We have a clear production plan in place and our artigiani “craftsmen” are ready to go as soon as we reach our goal. Our skis, carefully refined in their details, have been made with original materials one by one.
