IT ALL STARTED IN 2010, IN THE SADDLE ROOM OF OUR HORSE SATBLE
It all started in 2010, in the saddle room of our horse stable, where we built our first test lab for composite product manufacturing. Inspired by the beauty of our local landscape, we dreamed of creating skis that would bring unlimited access to wintery nature, allowing anyone to ski anywhere.
In 2020, because of our continued fulfillment of our promise, the Association for Finnish Work granted Skinbased's products the Key Flag label, denoting their “Made in Finland” status.
Currently, our skis are sold all over Europe and North America, as well as parts of Asia. We continue to work hard on extending our distribution, so that we will be able to offer the joy of Skinbased skiing to all of you.
STAYING TRUE TO ITS ROOTS.
From the very beginning, we have made a commitment to keep the product development and manufacturing of Skinbased skis close to our homes, in Kangasala, Finland. We feel that it’s important to produce skis in an area where skis can be used – for what better way to test, create, and inspire new and exceptional products?
