Handcrafted Skis for Instructors – Subzero & Carpani

Best ski instructor skis.
Subzero Coaching
and Carpani have established a new collaboration to create a new line of handcrafted skis.
Sole purpose of this line is to serve the needs of ski instructors, through out their training and education! One line that will include three sets of skis, designed and developed to perform where a ski instructor needs to perform: all conditions (technical and teaching exams), giant slalom (Eurotest/ISIA Test), Slalom (Test Technique/top certifications).

One single line – Why?

One single ski line means we can create a product with the same construction and geometry. This improves the ease of change between different sets of skis exponentially! What does this mean?
Means you don’t need to re-adapt your way of skiing everytime you change skis. Going from the GS skis to the all mountain skis or the Slalom skis will be easier. The structure of the ski stays the same, so does the package plate/binding. So the adaptation can go towards your technical improvement, without getting lost in adapting to the equipment.

Handcrafted skis – Tailored set up

You shouldn’t waste training time adapting to the skis, the skis should be adapted to you!

Handcrafted skis mean prime quality in construction. A specialized and tailored set up means the ultimate fit on skis. Each set of skis from this line comes with a package of accessories. One of which is teh BioTech race plate, which can be adjusted at different angles to match your biomechanics. Enabling us to set the skis up for you and with you. Based on your anatomy we can regulate stiffnes and geometry of every pair, so you can express yourself at best. From the very first turn.

Carbo-linum matrix

The SubZero Line

RC – The Educators
A set of skis for the technical exams. Short turns, long turns, chopped snow, moguls.
The geometry and the structure of this ski is designed to create balance between performance and ease of use. So you can express yourself on beast mode, where ever you are, from first to last run.
Available in size:
171 cm – R15
174 cm – R16,5

GS – The Equalizers
A set of skis for the giant slalom races we need to pass to get fully qualified. A tweak in the structure of the skis and longer length allows the best performance between gates and at speed. User friendly radius, to make life a little easier on the more challenging tracks. Race Ptex base like you don’t find in commercial skis (including “FIS” skis you find in shops). Because when you try to beat time, every detail counts. Great tool for open field training as well as teaching, for those keen to work on technique also at slow speeds.
Available in size:
176 cm – R18
182 cm – R21

SL – The Punishers
The progressive and solid slalom ski we need to pass the Test Technique. A great tool to work of agility and reaction time. The geometry follows the rest of the series, so while the radius decreases the reaction time is progressive and linear with the change of length. The Race Ptex is of course part of the standard production feature.
Available in size:
167 cm – R13

The Diamonds Line is a project developed exclusively for Subzero Coaching so orders needs to be done through us. These skis will not be available to general public through other dealers.
Each pair needs to be handcrafted following your order, so you will need to allow some time (at least 15 days) for the skis to be ready. Get in touch with us at info@subzerocoaching.com

Ski Test in Zermatt

For those interesting in testing the skis before ordering we have a few pairs available in Zermatt, in different sizes. Please note that the testing needs to be booked in advance and will have a fixed fee of 50 chf/day. The fee will be deducted from the cost of the skis if they are purchased at the end of the trial.
