Snowflex® is a high performance polymer composite system, the first that has been designed and manufactured purely to ski and snowboard upon.

It is not a by-product from another industry but was invented from a "first principles" basis and "what do customers want?" viewpoint. This meant that the whole process, including the manufacturing plant, had to be developed on a clean sheet of paper basis. Snowflex® has also won two awards from the British Department of Trade and Industry.

Snowflex® has been long recognized as one of the most exciting innovations in the snow sports market and is a real, credible alternative to snow. It is low maintenance, requires no grooming and is softer to fall on than hard packed snow.

Snowflex® provides:

The two properties, which are both essential for the enjoyment of skiing and snowboarding:

  • Slippy - for speed
  • Grippy - gives the ability to change direction and control speed of descent

Also

  • Soft to fall on - aids stress free rapid learning
  • No holes/voids - so is safe to fall on
  • No metal - so is safe to fall on

And

  • It can be formed into interesting terrain to keep customers interested and retained
  • It is very hard wearing and UV stable for outdoor conditions.
