Ski equipment maker Folsom is launching new graphene-enhanced custom skis. Folsom is collaborating with MITO Materials, to add the graphene into Folsom Custom Skis resin. The graphene is said to increase performance, reduce weight and improve the product's toughness and endurance.
Towards the end of 2020, Folsom produced three custom skis, that adopt the new graphene-enhanced resin. These skis were tested throughout the season, and Folsom said there are "notable improvements in the flex, dampening, and structural properties that you could quantify in the lab and on the slopes". Folsom will start offering graphene-enhanced skis in its next generation 2021 line, which will start shipping in September 2021.
