  • For downhill skiing : On-piste skis need to be agile, responsive and able to make turns. It is advisable to choose skis that are 10 cm smaller than the recommended size.

  • For freestyle skiing : Freestyle skis are designed in Twin Tip mode, which means they have a reduced contact area with the snow. To ensure stability and agility, it is advisable to choose a ski of your size. 

  • For touring skiing It's best to choose a ski of your size.

  • For freeride skiing : Freeride skis need to offer stability at high speeds and float in powder. It is recommended that you select A ski of your size, up to 10 cm more.


Why choose a longer ski?

  • Your level of skiing experience is advanced/expert
  • You like to ski fast and appreciate stability at high speeds
  • You like to ski aggressively
  • You're looking for better flotation
  • You are heavier than average for your height
  • You think your current skis are too short
  • You ski on terrain with a lot of space

Why choose a shorter ski?

  • You are a beginner in alpine skiing
  • You prefer agility over flotation
  • You ski slower / want to initiate turns at low speeds
  • You don't ski aggressively
  • You're lighter than average for your size
  • You think your current skis are too long
  • You ski on narrow terrain

As Ferreol's widest ski, the Surfeur 112 is your dedicated companion for powder days. With its highly maneuverable and agile design, it embodies the essence of "surfy" vibes. It features a significant amount of early tapering at the tips and tails, and while it doesn’t have super deep rocker lines, it’s very easy to release, pivot, and skid around.

The Surfeur 112 features a groundbreaking composition, blending unidirectional and bi-axial flax fibres to deliver an extraordinary on-snow experience. This unique construction not only enhances the skis' mechanical properties but also exemplifies Ferreol's dedication to reducing the environmental impact of skiing.

It stands as one of the most durable and eco-friendly skis on the market, offering a seamless blend of performance and environmental consciousness.

"The Surfeur 112 not only represents a brand-new model for Ferreol, but also the first to implement their construction method of replacing synthetic fibers like fiberglass and carbon with natural flax fibers. Doing so was no easy task (see Ep.248 of our GEAR:30 podcast), but the Surfeur 112’s flax laminate translates to a really impressively damp ride quality for a ski this light, while its notably tapered shape and deep rocker lines make it highly maneuverable and playful. Despite those latter aspects (and its fairly tight sidecut radius), the Surfeur 112 is still quite predictable and pretty stable in a variety of soft-ish conditions, from deep pow to variable spring snow. The Surfeur 112 is much more engaging at moderate speeds than other skis in its category, without feeling like a super niche model. In sum, the Surfeur 112 is a playful and agile ski with an excellent suspension-to-weight ratio."

Carbon footprint composition : An overview

The Surfeur 112 has an average carbon footprint of 19.48 kgCO2eq, which is approximately the same as the carbon emissions produced by a compact car over 103 km.


Carbon footprint composition: Materials

By substituting synthetic fibres with flax fibre, we have significantly reduced the carbon footprint of this ski without compromising its performance. When compared to a synthetic reinforcement like carbon or glass fibre, flax fibre reinforcements have a 27% lower carbon footprint. Also, the use of biosourced topsheet and epoxy further reduces the environmental impact. Combined with the renewable energy used to produce this ski, it is one of the most eco-friendly skis in the world in its category.

Flax fibre

Ferreol, sustainability stands as a cornerstone of our mission, propelling us to continually explore innovative avenues to minimize the carbon footprint of our products. In our pursuit of environmental responsibility, a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) revealed that traditional synthetic fibers, like glass or carbon, accounted for a significant share of our skis’ carbon emissions.

In response to this revelation, we embarked on a quest to identify eco-friendly alternatives, and natural fibers emerged as a promising solution. Among them, flax fibre took center stage, characterized by its nearly carbon-neutral production and exceptional mechanical properties. Choosing flax fibre technology not only aligns with our commitment to sustainability but also adds substantial value to our skis.

INCROYABLE

Possédant déjà une paire de Pionnier 104, j'ai eux la chance d'essayer par curiosité le surfeur 112 lors d'une journée démo l'hiver dernier durant une tempête et comment dire... je suis instantanément tomber en amour avec ce ski ! Je n'ai donc pas eux le choix de me procurer une paire et pour les avoir skié à plusieurs reprises et dans plusieurs conditions ce ski ne cesse de me surprendre et de m'impressionner !

Il porte très bien son nom, car la flottaison et la maniabilité sont INCROYABLE dans la neige profonde que l'on a vraiment la sensation de surfer sur la poudreuse. Et c'est sans parler de l'accroche et de la stabilité très surprenante en piste pour un ski de cette largeur.

L'essayer c'est l'adopter et félicitation à l'équipe de Ferreol pour la conception de ce ski tellement plaisant à skier !

Les meilleurs à date!!!!

Les Surfeur 112 sont définitivement une machine de guerre. Encore une fois, l’équipe de conception s’est surpassée pour réaliser un exploit. Skieur du Pionner 104, je me devais d’acheter une paire de 112 pour les journées de poudreuse profonde et aussi pour le design juste impeccable. N’étant pas très patient, aussitôt reçu, aussitôt essayé…sur surface très ferme. Première impression, oh, wait, what??. Je m’attendais à des fat skis, plus difficile à manier et surtout une accroche réduite. Ben non, j’avais tort. L’accroche est magique, le « carving » sur surface ferme est impressionnant et stable, ils tournent sur un 10 cents, presque pas de vibration en spatule et fonce tout droit vers le bas des pentes. Et je ne vous parle même pas des 3 tempêtes de neige où j’ai pu les tester au maximum (wow wow wow). Dans les sous-bois, les skis se contrôlent aisément, même plus facilement que mes 104 (surement dû au fait que le camber est très très léger – on est proche d’un « full rocker »). J’ai fait essayer à un ami qui skiait sur mes Pionner 104 cette journée-là et son commentaire a été, avec un gros sourire « ils (112) sont comparables a une Subaru Outback vs les 104 à une Hyundai Élantra GT (GT quand même). Mon ami ski, normalement sur des Kastle MX88, ça vous donne une idée!! Considérant tout ce qui précède, j’ai décidé d’utiliser les 112 comme mon « ski quiver ». N’hésitez pas à essayer, comme les autres modèles, on ne ressent pas leur largeur. Bon ski!!
