Our story about ski cores stated unequivocally that all the leading manufacturers except for Madshus use DuPont-made Nomex® honeycomb in their top-of-the-line racing models while using in-house made honeycomb in cheaper skis.
That is factually wrong – and Fischer Nordic got in touch to object and to correct us.
Says Tanja Winterhalder, Fischer Nordic’s head of PR & marketing
“Our Air Core is patented and made by Fischer. The Air Core is specially adjusted to our design and materials and as a result the power transmission is better”.
The Air Core ( together with carbon sheeting it’s attached to officially known as Air Core HM Carbon) is underpinning Speedmax and , since a lion share of all ski competitions is being won on Speedmaxes, we have no reason to put that assertion into question.
