iv Ski

It is incredible to see how far back skis date and how differently and skilfully they have evolved – each of them being so perfectly suited for that particular time, environment and purpose. Each and every one of them carries a distinct, deep nostalgia, because they were all products of man’s sincere search and love. As such, they are a result of the spirit of that time that manifested itself through those who were willing, humble and brave enough to let the spirit work its way through them… just as every object, idea or art form that stood the test of time does. This is why all the works of man are essentially divided into two different categories: the objective and the subjective.

Man always chooses bi-polar: will he leave his position to the spirit or to anything in front of him or will he try to occupy the given position himself. Objective is any work where man gave his position to life so that it could manifest itself – every work done so was made by the spirit. Subjective is any work where man tried to manifest himself as life.

In this time, the majority of works are industrial and empty. Man tends more and more to find personal works made with love and devotion… such that veiled over the works that remained. Isocentric skis are based on pure devotion and represent the spirit of this time. They are made with craftsmanship of the old masters at the same time encompassing the spirit of today. This is why they carry the same fluid as the greatest works of art or the greatest discoveries of their time.


Do not live life according to personal rules, but according to the rule of life.
Only what you do according to the rule of life and not according to a personal motive,
is exact and is the only profession that exists.


iv Ski

Everyone is bothered only by their own perception about themselves, others, the world… until we do not overcome it and step into dialogue with anyone or anything. By accepting that you are only what you are, you solve the eternal problem, because then you can be everything else to anybody and anybody everything to you.

One disadvantage of contemporary skis is the lack of flexibility and manoeuvrability on non-perfectly groomed terrains. This is why the classical “carving” skis have been to a large extent replaced by new types of skis such as rocker skis, freeride skis, etc. that are better suitable for off-piste and backcountry skiing and/or unregulated snow conditions. The problem with these skis is that they lack in performance on a wider scale, e.g. on iced terrains and hard snow, and in general on racing pistes and regulated ski routes, where higher control and accuracy is required. Therefore, in order to improve the flexibility of skis whilst maintaining a high level of performance, in recent years, hybrid ski concepts have emerged combining rocker and carving properties, etc. however no ski concept has yet achieved the desired level of flexibility and performance.

With isocentric skis the gap between the flexibility and performance has been bridged. The high frequency responsiveness of the skis and the excellent adjustability make them adaptable to a wide variety of snow and terrain conditions without jeopardising their superior performance properties. Since the skis are actively responding to the skier’s body movement and the properties of the terrain, the skier can rely on the skis and move in a relaxed, confident and spontaneous manner regardless of the given conditions and without having to decrease his performance. This enables enjoyment in a wide variety of snow, terrain and weather conditions at the same time enabling a steep learning curve for different styles of skiing.

Every day is a skiing day

iv Ski

When you are doing something, do not lose yourself in details, but look generally and in its own time, everything will form by itself.

Many skiers do not have the motivation to ski regularly as it is to exhausting. Therefore, they cannot develop their skills in order to make skiing a truly enjoyable, healthy and at the same time continuous activity. This way many skiers remain stuck in the same old circle of starting again every season and trying to reach those few skiing days in order to at least prevent from downgrading.

With isocentric skis negative effects such as exhaustion, muscle sore and joint pains do not occur, making every day skiing and continuous enjoyment of winter days really possible. After a skiing day, the body is fully prepared for a new skiing day. Therefore, isocentric skis are a therapeutic product for physical and consequently psychological health, which is necessary for modern day active life. The quality of life is much higher, resulting in better overall health and psychological stability.

Defence mechanisms

iv Ski


We live in a world of flaws in which any disadvantage can represent an impermeable wall or merely a mist. Someone intensifies the smallest nuances into darkness of catacombs, while someone changes walls of imperfections into morning mists.

Skiing is based on learned predefined physical patterns, but each skier also develops his own defence mechanisms for situations where skis cannot follow the desired body movement and skier must react intuitively to avoid injuries. This often causes stiff and reserved skiing style. With isocentric skis no defence mechanisms occur, because the skis respond very naturally and accurately to the body movement. This way skiing clearly improves – even for skiers with previously established defence mechanisms – subconsciously and without effort or hard learning. Product’s balance and perfect force distribution automatically loosens any patterns of defence. The body responds with a “dismissal” of all defence mechanisms or forced motorics which skier is not able to dismiss consciously. When the threat is no longer subconsciously perceived, defence falls off automatically.


iv Ski

One basic human desire exists as far as man remembers: to be freed from the laws of the physics and to exceed the limits of natural body. To escape into the world of weightlessness, flying, levitation. Dating into the prehistoric times, skis represent one of man’s first attempts to mechanically extend the physiological limitations of his body. Eventually, this basic survival utility has raised human movement to a new level where velocity, skill and agility have gained a completely new meaning and reached beyond imaginable. Offering invincible freedom of movement, skiing remains one of the most attractive sports to provide a step from everyday into the world of impossible. Playfully waving as if floating on a cloud, but at the same time flying at the speed of a bird is an experience only skis can provide.

But not any skis…


iv Ski

Isocentric skis are introducing a new revolutionary way of making turns where the centre of the turns is not static, but dynamic, continuously readjusted centre, i.e. an isocentre. The centre of the turn is not defined with the sidecut radius, as is the case with the classical carving skis, but is projected based on the forces applied to the ski, the skier’s center of gravity and the slope of the terrain.

Because the centre of the turn is continuously repositioning itself and is not only a fixed point around which skier rotates as a pendulum forces on the skier are smaller and more uniformly distributed throughout the entire turn – they do not increase sinusoidal from the beginning of the turn to its inflection point, but have a flatter distribution profile. This reduces the effect of pulsating loading – which induces a mechanical, automated body response – and allows for a more spontaneous, natural response. At the same time the control of skis is drastically increased.

Performance vs. safety

iv Ski

High-performance skies for a new experience of skiing.

Challenge to improve ski performance without increasing its hazardousness and/or create harmful effects is one of the greatest ones continuously facing ski producers worldwide. Although constant attempts and changes emerge, no concept has yet been found to successfully embrace these two seemingly mutually excluding properties – usually a compromise is made between the performance and the safety: higher performance products are usually less safe/healthy, while safer/healthier products provide less performance.
Here is where isocentric skis are different. Not only are they technically superior – they enable achievement of higher velocities, smoother turning and improved maneuverability; they are also significantly less burdening for the skiers body and thus healthier and safer as any other high-performance skis currently available on the market.

Pioneering ski building spirit – development from scratch.

The established ski producers rarely step out of the box and preferably imply corrections to the existing solutions which tremendously narrows their working field and at the end of the day provides only minor aesthetical corrections that make little if any change and don’t really tackle the problem in its roots. One such attempt is the increase of the sidecut radii in order to decrease the extreme accelerations / forces smaller sidecut radii have induced on the skier – which has been implemented in the recent years both in recreational and competitive skiing.

Isocentric skis on the other hand, were designed completely from scratch – by throwing away all the existing solutions and focusing solely on the achievement of the highest performance at the most favourable body conditions; without imposing any predefined limitations. This way an extremely broad spectrum of new concepts and ideas needed to be evaluated and analysed in an iterative process that slowly converged towards a finite single best solution.

The result of this backwards-process are completely different skis that possess superior performance properties and at the same time distribute significantly lower forces to the skier’s body than any other existing solution.

Revolutionary switch in skiing: healthy and safe skiing is combined with professional results.

In the last decades, especially in professional skiing, the harmful health effects of regular skiing became almost inevitable and athletes were forced to sacrifice their well-being for the achievement of top results – which is in complete disagreement with the spirit and the mission of this beautiful sport. This negative trend is being interrupted by isocentric skis which redefine the concept of skiing by allowing a disburdened and free approach to sports – body movement is accustomed to natural abilities and progress is self-induced through playfulness – which enables a healthier and also more efficient physical and psychological development.

Psychological effects of skiing is improved as the pleasure of skiing drastically increases.

Today many recreational skiers don’t attend skiing regularly as it is to exhausting, and often after skiing pains remain especially in the vulnerable parts of the body such as previously injured joints or strained muscles/ligaments. Isocentric skis have shown to provide therapeutic effects by releasing pain from chronically injured parts of the body (due to the overall relaxation of the body and the natural distribution of forces during skiing). After skiing pleasant, warm energy is present in the muscles as if they were being massaged – a similar effect as that swimming has on disburdening of the spine. Not only do isocentric skis allow active everyday ski life, it is even recommended to ski regularly due to the therapeutic reasons. Relaxation of the body, physical fitness and overall well-being contributes significantly to psychological health – enjoyable, safe and healthy outdoor experiences are a source of physical distress which is extremely important in the active life of contemporary man. This way, the overall quality of life is higher, resulting in better health and higher stability.

Prima / secunda

iv Ski

Isocentric skis are adapted for the left and the right side of the body. “Prima” (+) is the leading leg ski and “secunda” (-) the following leg ski. The result is symmetrical response of the left and the right ski regardless of the different strengths of the leading and the following leg.

People are left-handed or right-handed. We have two halves of the body, which are different in strength, stability and explosiveness. Isocentric skis consider this basic imbalance of forces, which forces the skier into unnatural movement and is a source of tensions in the body. With an innovative ski design, the skis equalize forces of the left and the right leg and thus nullify the effect of a weaker and a stronger leg. In this way they create a new, until now unknown balance of skiing. Skier can naturally respond to gliding without artificial force induction.

Tradition of ski building in Slovenia

iv Ski

In Slovenia, Europe, skiing and ski building has a very long and at the same time completely unique tradition. This tradition is rooted in the region Bloke, a plateau region with proverbially the largest amounts of snow and snow days. In this region skiing downhill the snowy slopes was practiced long before it was widely recognized as a recreational activity and when, throughout Europe and other parts of the world, skis were used merely as means of transport and hunting. The inhabitants of the Bloke region are the first people in history who were observed of making turns on the snowy slopes. In 1689, Johann Weikhard von Valvasor described these “pioneers of the turns” in the book The Glory of the Duchy of Carniola, where he wrote: “No hill is too steep to prevent them from sliding down even if it is so densely packed with trees; because they twist down in turns as a snake when obstacles are in their way.”

Being of an infinite value

iv No203

Man is a being of an infinite value. If he would respect the gifts of life with all his awareness, he would – in his unawareness – represent the greatest treasure of nature. And when two would allow to be a pair to each other, the natural rule of subconscious flow would start running between them – not in their captivity, but in complete freedom and beauty of their nature.

Natural flow of life runs within us always when we allow it and don’t dictate reality by our own will. But as soon as we wish to limit life into our own riverbed, we interrupt the natural flow of life with our overtaken time and step in pair with ourselves. This is because life is not ours, but we are of life. We cannot name life with our name, only life can name us, if we allow it to.

Society in which we live today is like a cheap sale where money is worthier than every soul. In it we are constantly overtaking time and thus interrupting the natural flow of life. Always when an artificial flow conquers a society and starts to rule in it, all creativity and development dry up. In this time no one is reaping nor sowing, everyone is just trying to be a faster predator than the other. This way life has lost all of its real value. And it would be enough only to give up our awareness in the name of life.

If your soul is humble and devoted, you are treasuring life with infinite value, because you are forming pair with what is real. If in your awareness you are forming a pair with obstinacy, obstinacy conquers your subconsciousness and overtakes you against your will and interrupts all the spontaneities of life.

Life runs through the unawareness of the humble, not through the awareness of the smart. Pairs are formed subconsciously. No one can include or exclude someone into or out of a pair. Only subconsciousness can do it, in accordance with what you belong to. The time in which you could choose your own pairs and dreamed your affiliations has passed. Time of subconsciousness was born in the distant future, in the near future it has opened the doors of pre- and post-time and thus unveiled and delineated dreams from reality. Now the subconscious flow runs synchronously with the present, therefore man’s inner captivity on one side and freedom on the other are growing ever stronger.
