“This stunning new ski was developed especially for Jackie Chan and was precisely tuned to Jackie’s physical abilities and skiing preferences.

The length is customized for each client.
“The plated finish is extremely durable and guarantees a long-lasting beauty and unrivaled distinction.

This adjustment ensures both a precise fit and a ski that is uniquely yours,” explains foil skis.
Purpleheart is an extremely dense and water-resistant wood. It is ranked one of the hardest and stiffest of the woods in the world. It is so durable that it can be used in applications that require toughness. The trees are prized for their beautiful heartwood which, when cut, quickly turns from a light brown to a rich purple color. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light darkens the wood to a brown color with a slight hue of the original purple. The dry wood is very hard and dense perfect for the flex of the Ski.
Every member of the Foil family is unique and our customization process reflects this belief. From the elegant inlaid initials to the vintage lock, classic flask and the monogrammed leather bag, Foil tastefully personalizes all elements of your package.
Custom designed by Foil and made from the finest, pure aniline, top grain leather, the Foil Travel Ski Bag is stately, elegant and practical. Each bag comes with a certification from the “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana” (Vegetable-tanned leather of Tuscany) which guarantees the authenticity, natural tanning method and premium quality of the leather.
The bags are crafted in 3 sizes (depending upon ski lengths) and come with a full-length heavy duty zipper, carrying handle, front pull handle and discreet wheels. Internally, the bags feature a form-fitted frame for the skis and poles, elegant fabric lining, reinforced nose and side panels.
