The Science

Behind Better Skiing

21st Century Technology Meets Old World Craftsmanship

Wagner Custom Skis takes your skiing to the next level by focusing on our Skier DNA fitting process to create a ski just for you, and you alone. Wagner Custom utilizes a skier’s weight, strength, agility, aggressiveness, body type, boot size, preferred terrain, skiing behavior and more to create a unique ski that ensures you reach your highest potential on snow. This translates into better comfort and control in challenging terrain, less stress on the body, greater confidence, more consistent performance, improved endurance and more fun on the slopes. We want you to click in and immediately feel at ease.

Determine Your Skier DNA

Design Technology

Our Skier DNA fitting process begins with a detailed questionnaire that allows us to understand your skiing behavior and goals. Once completed, our team of expert ski design engineers follow up with a phone call or Skype interview to dial in your one of a kind ski specifications. Once we explore your needs in fine detail, specifications for your perfect-fit ski are created using advanced computerized diagnostic and design tools. We prescribe ski dimensions, a ski shape and flex pattern to match and advance your Skier DNA.

Materials

Your Skier DNA will also be used to establish a unique combination of materials - core, base and structural layup - to achieve the design goals in a lively, predictable and durable product. Wagner Custom uses only the best materials available. We use tough furniture-grade wood in five weight classes along with four aerospace grade structural layers with high tensile strength. These two layers are complemented by our extra-thick, carbon steel edges and high-speed P-tex base materials.

More On What's Inside

Craftsmanship

We precision-craft your custom skis to fill your perfect fit prescription. Our Colorado factory uses state of the art computer-numerical-controlled (CNC) milling machines to precisely cut all parts of the ski so they fit together like a 3-D jigsaw puzzle. This eliminates the need for (and the limitations of) traditional ski molds. Each part of your unique skis are coated with resin and assembled for pressing, slowly and carefully, by one of our small staff of expert craftsman. Skis go into the press as a pair to assure identical curing time and temperature, and a perfectly matched pair. After curing, the skis are cleaned and expertly hand tuned, ready to go directly onto the snow.

Guarantee

Wagner Custom guarantees you’ll love your new skis – already optimized for flex distribution, sidecut shape and width, weight, float, “pop” and glide speed. Over our 10 years in business, the Skier DNA design process paired with our expert craftsmanship has created and shipped more than 7,000 successful designs – each pair a unique creation that worked perfectly right out of the box. Wagner Custom’s guarantee: If you’re not 100% happy, we’ll refund your money or build you another pair.
