KIN GS WO OD SKIS HAND MADE IN NEW ZEALAND

KIN GS WO OD

STORY

A hand-made ski company from New Zealand, Kingswood is different because we make each pair of ski to order, considering your size and skiing style in the construction. It’s been almost eight years since the very first Kingswood prototype was cracked from the mould. We’ve come a long way in that time, but some things haven’t changed a bit. We still choose only the best materials for our hand made skis. We still champion simple, solid construction. And we still love watching each pair take shape and be passed into the hands of their new owners. Kingswood Skis was started by Alex Herbert after 14 back-to-back winters roving from Canada to Europe to Australia. Alex’s only skis are sacraficed for R&DEventually, he took matters into his own hands. Taking his knowledge from 14 years at the ski tuning bench, Alex set to work.The first step was to take his favourite (and only) pair of skis and cut them into 86 pieces. Now he was committed. The first press was made from two pieces of rolled steel sandwiched together with car jacks. Though the start was rough, the aim has always been to make the best skis possible. Alex was convinced skis could be simpler, stronger, more durable. And so he experimented until he got it right. The first ski was good, ski-able and strong. The hard part wasn’t making a ski… it was making a great ski. That took three more years. Kingswood Skis hit the market in June 2005 but the search for perfection continues. New shapes are constantly added and old ones tweaked. The process is continually improved. Most recently, a rocker range and a kid’s range has been added to the fleet.


INSIDE

KIN GS WO OD SKIS

Each pair of Kingswood skis is hand-made to order by company founder Alex Herbert. A craftsman and perfectionist, Alex takes each pair through a unique construction process he designed himself. Kingswood skis are made using a traditional, solid sidewall construction. Edges and sidewalls are painstakingly pre-glued for extra strength. The core is handshaped and then wrapped in layers of tri-axial fibreglass and laminated with carbon fibre, epoxy resin, and rubber vibration dampening foil.
